Alexander Povetkin’s wife Yevgenia is former Miss Kursk and stunning model

Alexander Povetkin is the underdog going into his rematch with Dillian Whyte this weekend.

But he will know he can can on the support of his stunning model wife, Yevgenia, who is always ringside to cheer on her man.

Russian heavyweight Povetkin returns to the ring on Saturday night as he looks to prove there was nothing lucky about his first win against Whyte, despite being knocked down twice.

There won’t be too much of a crowd out in Gibraltar, where the bout is taking place, leading to the two-card even being labelled ‘Rumble On The Rock’.

But the 41-year-old WBC interim heavyweight title holder will be cheered on by wife of eight years Yevgenia.

Povetkin and Yevgenia have been married since 2013 when they held a stunning ceremony in Prague, Czech Republic.

Yevgenia is a former beauty pageant winner, having once been crowned Miss Kursk, and still does models, even if it is sometimes only for her 15k Instagram followers.

The Russian beauty and mother of one often posts updates of her lavish lifestyle on social media, or snaps of her cute baby boy she and Povetkin had last year.

  • Dillian Whyte’s verdict on Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury will excite all boxing fans

Yevgenia makes sure not to miss any of her hubby’s fights too, and always makes sure to cheer him on via the internet or in real life.

Should Povetkin beat Whyte in their rematch this weekend, he would almost be guaranteed a world title shot against either Anthony Joshua, who he lost to in 2018, or Tyson Fury.
