Default Re: Sizing up Wladimir Klitschko-Alexander Povetkin

People seem to forget that in fights with Byrd and Donald Povetkin was a lot harder to hit and employed more upper body and lateral movement, especially coming in at angles. Povetkin had the flu against Chambers, which is something that cannot be discounted as it clearly effected his footwork. On top of that Eddie didn't just simply tire. Povetkin was working his body all fight, which is why he began to run out of steam. Also it wasn't as if Chambers landed at will all the time on Povetkin, he landed a few good counter combos, but there were 6 or 7 of them throughout the fight, it wasn't as if he was dominating him throughout the early rounds and then just tired out.
