Anatoly Lomachenko, the father and coach of two-time Olympic boxing champion Vasyl Lomachenko, believes WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin has more tools in his arsenal than WBA/IBO/IBF/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko. Not only does he believe Povetkin has more tools, he also believes the boxer is more than capable of making it a real fight with Wladimir.
"[Povetkin] is a promising young fighter. Not everything has gone smoothly for him, but it happens. I think that Povetkin's time has yet to come," Lomachenko said.
"I think Povetkin is more diverse, a more versatile fighter. In my opinion, his arsenal is richer than the arsenal of Klitschko. Absolutely [he can compete with Wladimir], although he has less experience."
