    OK, almost everybody interested in this bout has shown their cards, revealed their opinions.

    Now I challenge them, here it is:

    • If Hunter beats Povetkin, I will close my account and never visit this forum again using another account.
    • If Povetkin beats Hunter, all those who favor Hunter in this bout will close their accounts and never visit his forum again using other accounts.

    Do you accept my challenge?

    This would be a great fight between two fighters I rate very highly that I am torn on predicting the outcome for. Povetkin has one of best resumes in the divison and it's between him and Whyte for the best left hook in the divison. However Povetkin does seem to be in decline peformance wise post the Duhaupas brutal knockout.

    Hunter is a high pressure fighter with good speed, movement, angles and workrate that I see causing Povetkin issues. Hunter did prove he has a decent chin getting caught flush several times against Bakole and Kuzmin however he does get caught too often which would be dangerous against a powerful puncher like Povetkin.

    Could go either way but I am giving the slight edge to Hunter as I think time is catching up with Povetkin.

    Why would anyone take such a bet in one of the most unpredictable spots? :lol:
    Fight could get easily end early due to a headbutt. Or get stopped due to a nasty cut.
    Or a robbery.

    Now it has suddenly become "unpredictable"??

    I was accused of being a "troll" just because I claimed Povetkin would beat Hunter. %99 of users in this thread called me a troll and said Povetkin is old, he would no way beat Hunter, Hunter is the favorite.

    And when I challenge against them, the bout all of a sudden becomes "unpredictable"!!

    I can't believe it!

    And then, excuses are also thrown " there will be a cut", "there will be a headbutt", "there will be a robbery"... wow...

    What?
    I said that its ridiculous to hold such a bet in a sport that is so unpredictable due to the possibility of cuts, bad judging and injuries.
    I wasn’t talking about predicting the actual fight. Those were not some excuses.
    Hunter is the clear favourite for me, but why would I risk my account for it? You never know what could change a fight.
    Back in 2012, Grzegorz Proksa was one of the hottest new middleweights on the block. He won and then defended his European title against the no hoper Kerry Hope. You would have been a fool to bet money on Hope.
    But what happened in the second round? A clash of heads opened a nasty cut over Proksa´s left eye. The rest of the fight, Proksa dealt with vision problems due to the cut. Hope ended up scoring a MD win and one of the years more notable upsets.
    In the remathch, Proksa proved that the cut was what changed the first fight. Hope got completely outclassed and dismantled.
    This is why I said that boxing is extremely unpredictable.

    You claimed that Hunter was chinny and Povetkin would easily KO him. This is why you were called a troll. People are rightfully favouring Hunter because he has looked really good lately, and Povetkin not so much. And then there is Povetkins age.

    OK then. As a respect to your past, I am modifying my challenge:

    • If Hunter beats Povetkin, I will close my account and never visit this forum again using another account.
    • If Povetkin beats Hunter, all those who favor Hunter in this bout will close their accounts and never visit his forum again using other accounts.
    • If Povetkin hurts Hunter with a headbutt at any stage of the fight, then the challenge is off.
    • If Povetkin cuts Hunter with a punch, the challenge is still on, because it can't be counted as cheating, it shows the power, skill and domination of Povetkin

    How about now?

    **** your challenge. I’ve already put my credibility on the line. Been saying hunter and Ruiz are the best heavys in the land on record for awhile. Povetkin ain’t doing **** to hunter. Not even with the best Peds. Heard me.

    Fair enough.
    But count me out. I am favouring Hunter, but not enough to put money on him.

    Hunter is originally a cruiserweight, he lacks the power to KO a heavyweight. Povetkin on the other hand is a KO artist.

    Povetkin by KO in 7.

    You highly underrate and underestimate mike. Mike was a heavyweight his whole amateur career and moved down for the Olympic team.
    He’s a natural heavyweight and a weight drained cruiserweight. Mike should and will be the favored in this fight for good reason. Povetkin is no longer in his prime. Mike is winner this fight and easy.
