Default Re: [Only Euro] Your views on Povietkin vs Huck

I've always liked Povetkin but I have to confess I scored it a draw and Huck is far from my favourite fighter.

I thought Povetkin started well but I thought Huck shook him several times and to be honest I thought if the last round was a minute longer Huck would have stopped Alexander.

Something clearly went from Povetkin over the past 2 years, not sure what has happened but he is not the same fighter and to be honest I don't think he ever will be, he still has some nice moves and throws a decent combination once in a while but he is not the fighter that burst onto our scene a few years ago.

Huck surprised me with his ability to take the shots and keep up a decent pace, how much of that was down to Povetkin just not being the fighter he was, I don't really know.

I think they will just try and hold the title as long as they can and make plenty of money from it and then perhaps cash in with a big fight against Klitschko or possibly Haye in the uk if he can get himself licensed.
