I was suprised to hear this fight was coming off. Hell, I wouldn't be surpised to see Donald outbox any of the current Champs outside of Klitschko.

You are right,flabby!

Povetkin's weak spot may be his stamina.But I guess that Donald will test Povetkin's stamina.Donald's chin is okay,and so is his stamina.I dont think that Povetkin will be able to stop the experienced vet within the distance.
Hopefully,this upcomming bout against Donald will tell us a bit about Povetkin's stamina.I for my part would like to see him share the ring with 1-2 teak tough journeymen like Sherman Williams,or Sedrick Fields before taking on -again-fighters of the upper echelon of his weight division.
A fight against his durable stable mate Timo Hoffman would be desireable IMO.This fight could be staged without any trouble,and Hoffman is a decent heavy in his prime with a proven track record.

Povetkin should win, but a stoppage is unlikely.

he looks like he smokes cigarettes too

He would be smoked by Povetkin in a mere half a round..

He would be completely out of his depth..

I don't know if Larry could make it competitive. Much depends on his frame of mind. In his recent interview he stated he's never seen Povetkin fight. Larry only knows that he's Olympian. He took a fight on a short notice. Likely of despair. King didn't feed him any fight for a while.

Hmm. That really makes it sound like a "turn up for a payday and hope I get lucky" attitude from Donald...

Povetkin has the pressure of fighting in front of a hometown crowd. Sometimes that can make a boxer punch himself out trying to make himself look impressive. There are a few intangibles at work here that a crafty veteran like Donald can take advantage of it the opportunity presents itself.

My guess for the fight is it will be surprisingly close with Povetkin's homecooking paying off. Povetkin via a point or two.

Povetkin isn't Wlad. In front of his home crowd, he would never allow himself to burn out, even if he was inches away from death. No homecooking will be needed either, he doesn't fight at home to steal decisions. Donald will be KO'ed.

If Povetkin KOes Donald I will handcraft a golden icon of Povetkin and put it on the dashboard of my truck and worship it while I'm waiting at traffic lights and railroad crossings.

Haha! You are exaggerating,butch! Could be quite annoying to have Povetkin's face in front of your eyes for hours and hours!

Maybe Povetkin will make me a prophet without even betting on him...sorry I couldn't resist that one.
