If povetkin languishes on the inside too much, he's playing peter's game. Peter's rabbit punches are very dangerous. I think it's a favorable style match up for Peter.
I think Povetkin is far more skilled and most likely the better fighter but he needs to prove a little bit more. Against the other top hws, id pick him because they lack big power and povetkin's workrate would prove to be the difference.
Even if he loses against wlad, he might show he is the 2nd best hw out there. Povetkin will make it a very interesting fight but Wlad knows how to wear a smaller opponent down as well as anyone around today.
