the more i watch of Povetkin, the less competitve i see this fight being. something else to keep in mind, Wlad throws a much faster 1-2 combination than Chambers as demonstrated against Peter and sometimes throws it 2 times in a row like a four-punch combination.

In both videos, Povetkin and Peter are in similar positions: standing in front of their opponents doing nothing. Povetkin was in this position throughout the fight but Chambers let up after the 5th.

Povetkin cannot mimic Sultan's strategy and run and go backwards since his style is just the opposite. so unless he develops some head movement, he's gonna get blasted out quite easily. I think it's pretty clear he doesn't have Peter's chin.
