Cedric Boswell is looking to become the first American in four years to hold any of the world heavyweight belts when he meets WBA champion Alexander Povetkin on Saturday. The 42-year-old Boswell, of Atlanta, has won his last 14 fights since a 2003 loss to Jameel McCline. He proclaimed in advance that ''the American dream will soundly defeat the Russian pretender.''
