    Great fight if it happens, big test for Hunter. A win for either puts them in contention, who you got?

    I'll take Povetkin where he will land on a sometimes sloppy Hunter , Povetkin doesnt have many holes ,the way to beat him is create openings . Hunter is not always on point every round so? Povetkin should work him over over for 12 just enough to get a win. Hunter can make most look bad,this will probably be one .I don't think its going to be a great fight ,I see a lot of holding and leaning.

    Hunter, with his chin I thinks he withstands Povetkins right hand and gets the late stoppage. Real good fight though, hopefully Hunter comes in in shape.

    I'll take Hunter because I think he will outland the aging Povetkin.

    I've got Hunter. I'm glad this fight is booked since it represents a good progression to his career. It's a meaningful test that will pay off with a bump in the rankings if he wins.

    Going with Hunter via a UD in this one

    I dont think he has that elite power to stop Povetkin. But he has enough to outwork Povektin.

    Great fight. Povetkin is way past his best but he's still tough, has legit KO power in either fist, and he'll remain dangerous right up until the final bell or for however long it lasts. Michael ''The Bounty'' Hunter Jr. seems to have a very good chin but he won't want to leave it out hanging for Povetkin to detonate on because he can still do serious damage with those hooks of his. Big fan of both but I'll go with the younger, fresher man here.

    Hunter really has a great chin, but I was alarmed by how much he was getting tagged in his fight against Kuzmin.

    He can't let that happen if he fights a good, heavy-handed boxer like Povetkin.

    Hunter should win this, hes at least half decent and povetkin is way, way over the hill.

    But really who would be surprised if this new generstion of heavyweights get embarrased yet again.

    Personally I think Hunter should fight Povetkin like he did Bakole, take it to him with a gritty, rough, mauling, smothering inside fight. That performance had a Marco Huck vs. Sasha vibe to it, this would be the perfect fight to replicate it in.:deal:

    Rooting for Povetkin to derail the bounter hunter

    The apparently elusive, hard to hit Hunter - master of sublime movement

    I got Hunter here too. But it wouldn't totally surprise me if Povetkin KO'ed him, Povetkin still has dangerous power

    What is your beef with Hunter? I've noticed you don't seem to like him much.

    I think this is a really close and interesting fight. I admire that Hunter is prepared to fight tought challengers. In the last 2/3 years he's fought Usyk, Bakole, and now Kuzmin amongst others. All three of these are risks with relatively little pay off.
