I don't think so my friend. Peter was getting blasted all night long. His defense consists of blocking punches with his face

Povetkin's guard is not much better. Thompson utilized the high guard before the Wlad fight so he didn't adjust his hands.

Here is Sam Peter's high guard defense. Notice the Tysonesque head movement

...unless u call a headshake a defensive tactic

I obviously favor Wlad but the more tjme passes the bigger chance I give Povetkin. Regardless; I feel this will be a very competitive fight. And quite frankly, do not know who I will root for.
i will be rooting for wlad and expecting a dominating performance. the key imo is for wlad to keep busy with the jab therby keeping the fight at mid and long-range.

where are Cardstars and Huki, the 2 biggest Povetkin cheerleaders alive on here?!?
