Re: Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin
You misunderstand me. Povetkin certainly does need to prove himself after his recent run in order to "deserve" a title shot.
However, my comment stemmed from fairly low regard for Arreola and Peter as opponents - they wouldn't represent "must-win" opportunities to help prove himself, and would constitute backward steps from his win over Chambers 30 months ago. Granted, they'd be a slight step up from Sykes and Mora, but they wouldn't be the best he'd faced, and he should face better to earn a top ranking. Wins like Chambers again, or better are the way to go.
