Alexander Povetkin wins his last match via unanimous decision, in a fairly decent fight. The opponent he fought, also went many rounds with the best fighters in the division, although, in those fights, Larry Donald was in his prime, so that says a lot about where Alexander is in his career. Anyway, today he fights a former heavyweight champion in Chris Byrd, although, again, he’s also at the end of his career.
Alexander Povetkin is now ready to fight a high calibre opponent in Chris Byrd.
This fight starts of fairly slowly for Alexander Povetkin, as Chris Byrd takes the initiative, by landing some decent shots, while keeping Alexander out of range. This looks like a very interesting fight, that will likely force Alexander to evolve as a fighter.
