    Poor refereeing on the undercard of Povetkin v Hammer. Malikov tripped while making Berrio miss but ref called in a knockdown. Anyway, Malikov won and that's what important.

    These two boxing like they are friends. Neither one trying to take the other out.

    I didn't get that impression. Hammer is very strong but he took a beating.

    In the later rounds, but they're friendly to each other -every round touching gloves at least twice.

    Fine sportsmen that's all. We're used to seeing the simian antics of negro boxers.

    I didn't like the way Hammer touched his head a few times as tho he was hurt. I don't want any more Magos.

    To be honest, Povetkin's not very fast on his feet, his footwork is only average, and being a small heavyweight with his age I can't see him winning a UD against Joshua in the UK or Wilder over here.

    Yes, both are good sportsmen. That is always nice to see.

    That's what they're saying in the comment section on that article but looking at their avatars it is not surprising. They seem a bit nervous.

    There are so

    This feller made a good post there:

    Joseph Cash lol, he was an olympic gold medalist and amatuer world champion gold medalist in his 20's, theres a difference between slob and fighting fat, and there is a difference between muscle and steriods. Briggs going from 240 to 275 in solid muscles = steriods. Povetkin has fought at 215-230 his whole career. Hed have to be the dumbest steriod user in the world to use it without having an ounce of gains lol. Suliman has been desperate to keep WBC belt in US, thus when ever a threat to Beyonce comes along, they get spiked. Happens in boxing all the time. Ask Lucas Browne why he was cleared by VADA before entering Chechnya 5 days before fight, yet goes positive after fight. Think he decided to get on riods in a foreign warlord country couple days before fight when training had finished? Lol Ask Fury why he takes crates of his own food and water whenever he fights overseas. Only time in 20 years of boxing Povetkin is acused of doping, is when hes going to fight Wilder, or an eliminator to fight Wilder, yet hes never stopped from boxing, go figure.

    I think you are right. 5 years ago When povetkin was in his prime I would have picked him to beat Joshua and wilder. He's almost 40 so that is a big problem

    I see that ape like Dilan Whyte was sidelines at Povetkin/Price and challenged Povetkin.

    His ko of Price was frightening, I hope Price retires, he is an accident waiting to happen.

    Povetkin is getting old, but I think he's still good enough to beat the loud-mouthed, arrogant Dillian Whyte.

    Joshua ordered by WBA to defend his title against Povetkin. Povetkin has to realize this is his last chance at the true Heavyweight title. I hope he seizes the opportunity.

    Povetkin needs to land a counter punch that Joshua can't see coming and then take him out.

    If you look at the two fights that went into the championship rounds with Joshua he had a lead on Wlad when there was no way in hell he should have had the lead going into the 11th round tko, he also had a near shutout win against Parker when that fight was much closer than this. So there will be no way he can win a points win unless he scores multiple knockdowns. If this happened the scorecards will be irrelevant as he will have a tko win as he is too sharp a finisher to let Joshua off the hook.
