i've been watching a lot of povetkin's fights lately and noticed a couple more things.

his punches are quicker and sharper than i intially thought. very impressive handspeed inside. i would say his power is better than average but not very good.

fights harder when hit or tired. If gets tagged, he immediately tries to come back. Doesn't really no how to hold.

he is a great worker inside but loses effectiveness as he moves to mid-range then to long-range.

he likes to stand/rest a lot at mid-range. He likes to fire off his quick combinations, then take a step or two back. He has a decent mid-range offense but he will get bombed out by Wlad at that distance.

he tends to keep his hands at high chest level. He doesn't have a high guard like Tony Thompson. He squares himself up too much.
