    Can’t see a thread on this so please forgive me if there is one already.

    This is a great fight, very close one to call. How do you see it going?

    Pov via KO for one last hurrah.

    Still want to see Pov/Chisora, just for the mesh of styles.

    Sadly, at this point, Hunter on points. If Povetkin still has anything left in the tank, then he wins. But he's ooold.

    Povetkin by UD. He is old, but he is a higher class fighter.

    Great fight. This is the most important night of Hunter's career, and Povetkin has to be looking at this as his last great chance. Should be no shortage of effort and determination in this one.

    Povetkin is a bit slower than he once was, and a bit less athletic as well. Not sure if Hunter will fold mentally and become semi docile, allowing himself to get outworked, like he did against Usyk. Interesting fight though, and if Hunter is active, he should win.

    Most overrated man on the forum about to get a beat down from old Pov

    Lean towards Hunter close decision. But he likes to open up and trade which gives Povetkin a chance at scoring a knockout here.

    Povetkin should handle this. UD or late TKO win for old, shot Pov.

    I think he does the rugged inside game approach he took with Bakole and Ustinov matches, which is reminiscent of Marco Huck's style he fought Sasha with, only a far more polished version. If does that and does it effectively, I think he stops Povetkin mid to late.

    Hunter by UD, unless Povetkin is back on prime steroids. And he might be.

    I was impressed with Pov against Hughie recently. I thought he was gassing after 4 but he wasn't - just his natural demeanor! Really looking fwd to this one. Have picked Pov via KO but we shall see.
