How do you figure this?
Povetkin has decent power but not great, what he does have however is a very high work rate.
This means Holyfield would take a sustained beating over 12 rounds.

Best thing that could happen to him is to either fight a powder puff puncher like Chambers or someone like Wlad that could KO him quickly so he loses all interest in fighting.

It was never on. They had discussions, Povetkin took a ton of flack for it.

Atlas was afraid he thought Holyfield was too much for Povetkin so he pulled him out

1st off wlad does not ko anyone quick..fighting wlad would be a death sentance for him barring some sort of miracle...povotkin dosnt have huge power and as weve seen he does have decent work rate but will take alot of easy rounds...also with holyfields style it would reduce hispunishment and result in a ud..basicly something similiar to iggy holyfield

Fu** Holyfield. I'm sick of Primadonna asking for big paychecks and acting like he's worth millions at age 65. He should realize his days are over and stop pissing on his own legacy and our sport.

Go retire Evander. Hang 'em up. Get a life.
