Povetkin will KO him inside of six rounds.

A 28 year old prime Huck in the shape of his lifetime couldn't beat Povetkin, although it was close. Even an in-shape but 40 year old Rahman is a huge underdog against Povetkin.

They try to sell his chances with the upset one punch KO over Lennox from over a decade ago... That should tell you enough.

No. He's well passed it now, hasn't won a meaningful fight in years and is painfully sluggish.

He may be in better shape than he usually is, but it means very little. He will capitulate relatively easily.

Rahman is beyond shot & shouldnt be anywhere near a ring, let alone fighting for a world title.

Its a truly terrible fight that I wont be watching.

No, and it's not because Povetkin is good or anything it's just that Rahman is barely even a boxer anymore

No chance, Rahman was washed up when Wlad fought him years ago.

Im not exactly sure how he even qualified for a title fight.

It's the WBA, so probably the same way as Boswell, Harrison and friends... they just didn't

At least Boswell held the NABA-title and Harrison the EBU-title
