    Thanks Robney! And yeah, this really is a tricky one to pick. Definitely fired-up to see how it unfolds in just over a month (barring any unforeseen obstacles).

    As for the pronunciation, I had been told that's how it's pronounced, and I swear that's close to the way I've heard Buffer pronounce it. Although, a fair number of people continue to criticize my pronunciation here.

    I've also heard it should be Pov-yet-kin and also Pow-e-yet-kin.

    I've heard announcers say Poe-vet-kin, yet I remain convinced that is incorrect.

    That's the way I heard Russian announcers say it.

    Personally, I thought Povetkin was better in the early going. I thought his his body punching was undervalued. He kept beating Whyte there. Regardless, I think Whyte is really going to try and stick behind that jab in the rematch. Povetkin needs a steady dose of his own jab and overhand rights to break him of it. No matter the result, Povetkin has shown admirable skill and staying power. The man has been ranked in the top-10 every year but one since, 2006 or 07.
