Ismayl Sillakh Breaks Down Klitschko vs. Povetkin

By Yuri Tarantin

Russian cruiserweight contender Ismayl Sillakh gave his take on the huge heavyweight fight between WBO/IBO/IBF/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) and undefeated challenger Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18KOs), taking place on October 5th at Olympic Stadium in Moscow Russia. The first time ever that two Olympic gold medal winners battle for the heavyweight gold in Russia.

"You can not box Klitschko if you are scared. And Povetkin will not be afraid. On the other hand, Klitschko will be the absolute favorite, as every indicator, as all of the stats are on his side. Will Alexander's attitude bear fruit? Will he be able to hold steady and make it a fight? After all, Wladimir only beat fighters who would not box with him and they were broken down. Although, again, I can hardly imagine anyone who can compete with the Klitschko brothers right now. They are giants in the literal and figurative sense of the word," Sillakh said.

Povetkin has to get on the inside and let his hands go. If he allows Klitschko to box at range, then it's going to be a one-sided dismantling.
