Povetkin is a dangerous man. You can’t take anything away from that. He’s not been where he’s been for nothing.

Who will win: Povetkin or Fury?

Hughie Fury is a good young boxer (24 years old) with long arms (203 cm). Huey is a cousin of Tyson Fury. The last fight of Hughie Fury took place in July this year, Hughie won by TKO.
Povetkin will be 40 years old on September 2. He spent his last fight almost a year ago. Alexander lost by technical knockout to Anthony Joshua. It is difficult to say in what physical form he is today. But on his side is experience and a strong blow with his right hand.

If Povetkin manages to work in the middle or near range, he will knock out Fury.
