[QUOTE=KO'er;13809622]Wlad by 8th round KO.[/QUOTE] 5-7 rounds, Only 8 if he is getting paid by the round,. I really don't think Povetkin can win around except by the corrupt judges!

Povetkin looks like a little boy next to Wlad! Wlad is even more ripped than normal, he's taking this seriously...

[QUOTE=Public_Enemy;13807941]Looks like Povetkin had a pretty good grip on that handshake. Does anyone give him a chance? Wlad looks fit as usual.[/QUOTE] No way, Wlad will annihilate him because he will be fully aware of the judging corruption potential there…
