Default Povetkin; Prospect or Contender?

Kind of weird for a guy with only thirteen fights but he just schooled a guy who recently lost a debatable decision to Valuev in a title fight so IMO Povetkin has graduated from "prospect" to contender.

Contender indeed. I did not expect him completely outboxing Donald, who just recently lost a controversial decision to Vaulev.I am anxsiously waiting to know who his next opponent might be.

Still a prospect, but reaching contender status quite rapidly. I'd like
a calvin brock level opponent next for sasha.

As stated a fight with Brock would perfect at this stage.

Has to be a contender now , prospects don't have shutout wins over a guy like Larry Donald .

Contender partially because he not only appears to have polished all around skills that he just put on display to dominate a top 15 guy but also because the heavyweights are a pretty weak bunch atm, (especially past #5).

Contender - the oppostion this kid has been facing establishes him at least as a top 20 guy, if not borderline top 15.

He stops Brock in 10 and Byrd by UD at this stage in his career imo.

Well if you just want to see him fight and don't mind the quality have a look on youtube . I think almost all of his fights have at least some clips from them there .
