If Donald shows up in the same shape he was in vs Valuev, he has a chance, if he hasn't too much rust. I read he sparred with McCline for Jameel's Valuev fight. So maybe he has remained active boxing wise outside the ring.

I put a few bucks on Donald, I expect the odds to narrow as we inch close to fight night. Donald is better than the guys Povetkin has defeated.

Donald beat Valuev by four points on my card. I don't know that Chagaev did better vs Valuev than Donald did. Is Povetkin ready for Chagaev?

Also, I have a feeling Donald is going to be training hard for this one and wanting redemption after getting jobbed. Chagaev got the title and the respect for doing something that Donald already did, that nobody acknowledges (beat Valuev).

Donald at +500 seems like its worth a shot at least.

Donald is 40 years old and hasn't fought in more than a year and a half. I don't know why it's so hard to believe that Povetkin could stop him. Povetkin isn't a great puncher but he is a good puncher and will land enough to do some damage.

Would you at least put an avatar I choose for 2 weeks after Povetkins KO's him?

we'll have the answer soon. donald is able to absorb a lot of punishment, but he won't be willing. it's going to be his last fight, he hasn't fought for over a year, i think maybe two, while his last opponent was the massively overrated valuev, who can't knock anyone out for shit, at least if you're judging him right and not by some youtube-highlight-clips.
then there is povetkin.. a fighter who improved immensly in the last fights, who completely crushed bostice (no one expected that to happen the way it did, it's basically the same situation), and who can prove his worthiness of being a contender for truly big shots in his next two or three fights.

I'll put up a Povetkin avatar if he KOes Donald. How's that?

Great, I already have something ready for you when it happens.

Novirasputin, first of all, the fight is in Russia, not Germany. Second, Chapman would have been stopped anyways. Is it hard to believe that Povetkin, a great finisher, would have hurt him even worse than he already did at the end of that fight? Find a better example of where a Povetkin fight would have gone the distance if it was in America. You don't think Povetkin would get a stoppage win against someone like Bostice if it was in the US? Donald will be KO'ed.

does anybody really believe Donald stands a chance. He forty freakin years old and if he stops for a second he's gonna get clocked. His time has passed and he wasn't all that great even during his prime. This fight has knockout written all over it and if Povetkin loses then he really is not as good as we all think he is. By the way the Holyfield fight was quite a while ago....stop bringing it up.
