Povetkin speaking about his upcoming fight with Larry Donald: "I won´t say much but will let my fists do the talking." Wow! a boxer with humility
His promoter Kalle Sauerland made a rather bold statement though. "I expect after next Saturday we will be going after the Klitschkos," Sauerland said.
Wow! After only pro 13 fights, they're really pushing this guy. From what little I've seen, Povetkin has excellent natural power with solid skills but his lack of size may or may not hurt him. Donald will be a good test.
I wouldn't be surprised if both he and Wald get though their next bouts, they try to make a fight based on Povetkin's team. Vitali is all tied up w/Mccline, Peter, Oleg and Wlad will be unable to secure a unification fight and has no mandatory. Wlad will probably try to fight a name or the best available opponent (like with Brock), which could very well be Povetkin if he takes care of Donald impressively.
What is everyones' thoughts on this potential fight late this year?
