    Could Sasha KO Pulev? or is Sugar Kubrat too slick for him?

    Chances are Povetkin lines him up with something eventually. But it's a real interesting clash. Almost like Povetkin rematching a downgraded version of Klitschko. Pulevs jab and long range game will cause anyone in the division at least some issues.

    If they fought today, I would certainly pick Pulev by UD.

    I don't know quite how much each has left, but I rate sasha as the better boxer prime for prime.

    Prime Povetkin would beat prime Pulev everyday and twice on sundays.

    Both are coming to the end now, but Povetkin was better than Pulev and would still likely beat him imo.

    Povetkin beat him in the amateurs, it will be the same in the pro's

    The most exciting thing Kubrat Pulev has ever done was kiss that weird looking woman.

    I'll take Povetkin. Pulev has that jab, and size, but his defence is not that impressive and I think Povetkin will land harder and more on Pulev.
