Alexander Povetkin did a good job in his previous fight, dispatching John Castle in the first round. This makes it his first, first round knockout. Hopefully he can go from strength to strength in his next couple of fights. Anyway, today he fights durable, but little known Stephane Tessier, a fight he should have little difficulty winning, but who knows.
Alexander Povetkin looked impressive in his last fight, now he fights Stephane Tessier, on his road to the title.
This fight starts off fairly slow, with neither fighter really throwing anything with power. Stephane Tessier is fighting a very cagey fight, throwing jabs and straight punches, while covering up when Alexander Povetkin lunches his attack. This looks like a potentially long fight, so let’s see what Alexander has install for us.
