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.
Yea I agree totally with this. Klitschko is just a very bad match for Povetkin and always will be.
