Hunter's speed and accurate punching was on display in the first round. Kuzmin was the bigger man and showed that he was dangerous when landing.

The rounds were very close, with Hunter doing more work and landing the more accurate shots.

Well, obviously Hunter couldn`t finish off Kuzmin. Povetkin is at least one level better than Kuzmin, likely 2 levels. I don`t believe Hunter beats Povetkin.

[QUOTE=Mammoth;20057340]How about Hunter vs Povetkin? Could Hunter pull that one off?[/QUOTE] Povetkin looked unimpressive against Hughie. Hunter should be able to finish off the old Russian.
