Contender now. But lets not forget that Povetkin was one of the most dominating amateur heavy weights of all times.
he isnt a " normal" heavy weight-so to speak!

He is around #15.

Donald showed his age.

Contender. Donald had an even fight with Valuev and beat Evander Holyfield. A win over Donald is enough to put you in contention.

Still a prospect for me, i do not count people as contenders untill they are one maybe two fights away from a serious world title bid i also do not include many so called gate keepers in the contender bracket. Povetkin is really good ad has a decent enough chance to unify but i hope they dont think about that untill at least next year, put him in with some dangerous or awkward fighters first to smooth out the edges.

Top 15 definently.

I think he could beat everyone in the world today but hasnt done enough to warrant a higher ranking as of now.

Povetkin is on the right track.. He is almost ready but why risk him when time is on your side. Povetkin on skill level is a contender.. He himself is ready in his mind and he is very self beleiving.. He was a prospect when he was facing Mayfield and Ahunanya, but after demolishing Bostice double quick and dominating a still active Donald he is way beyond prospect.. In 12 months he is gonna be challenging for one title or another..

He's a contender, but I wouldn't think him ready to fight for a title now, unless he's after a record of least fights to the title. it'd be good for him to be in with some punchers now, such as Tua, as was suggested, but also someone young. Chambers, Maddalone, or Timor Ibragimov would all be good fights, basically anything that tested him against another supposed up and comer, even one not at the level he seems to be.
