Styles make fights.Fast movers a la Sprott or Timur are Timo's worst nightmare.He would probably look much better against fighters like Sam Peter or Maskaev.Well,of course he would lose those fights,too.However,he looked horrible against a relatively harmless opponent like Timur,but showed decent performances against Vitaly Klitschko or Akinwande.
I would love to watch Timo vs his stable mate Povetkin.
