Huck: Alexander Povetkin Will Defeat Wladimir Klitschko

By Alexander Pavlov

WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck is picking his Sauerland Event stablemate, Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18KOs), to defeat IBO/WBO/IBF/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) on October 5th in Moscow, Russia. Huck lost a controversial twelve round decision to Povetkin in early 2012. He says the fact Povetkin is not afraid is a key factor in the match. Huck states that most of Wladimir's opponents were terrified before they even entered the ring.

"I think Povetkin is going to beat Klitschko, and it's really because he is not afraid of Wladimir. All of the recent contenders who faced Klitschko, they lost before entering the ring. In fact, they were experiencing fear and they surrendered without putting up a fight," Huck said.

[QUOTE=jreckoning;13469024]I think Povetkin could go 10 rounds being badly beaten for most of those. WLAD TKO 10. Povetkin gets hit too much, and the last guy you want to be hit too much by is Wlad.[/QUOTE] If I were Povetkin…
