  1. Danm you guys are quick! Now fight deontay wilder give him a good deal respect him! Joshua was in trouble big time with those weak jab in the body. Povetkin was going hard on him but too bad he get too cocky and forgot to protect his head. Joshua know how to finish someone no joke but he expose his weakness with this fight. If wilder keep his hand high and jump close like povetkin did joshua gonna get K.O

    1. Wilder offers a totally different kind of offence. Can’t compare the two at all. Povetkin used technical and boxing skill to get on the inside and land over the jab. Wilder tries to throw hooks through the guard. Wilder needs to beat Fury first and that won’t be easy.

  2. Excellent bout, I’m increasingly impressed with Joshua’s ability to adjust and turn the tide in his favor, great trap he set for Povetkin and it worked.

  3. English commentators are somewhat biased. I had Povetkin winning every round. He totally exposed Joshua’ s limited defence. He had the weigh, height and most importantly the reach advantage and could not protect himself from Povetkin’s hooks and cross’s. With Wilders reach and power he is history.

    1. I think you are ignoring Joshua’s jabs, for me he crearly won the 3rd and 6th round making Povetkin miss all his powershots and counter jabbing him

    2. Maybe so!

      I also had Povetkin up at the time of the stoppage. To be honest, I don’t think Wilder has anything approaching the skill set of the Russian. But it might not matter. Deontay only needs to hit you once. And as you say, he throws from range. The short Povetkin had to rush in, putting himself at risk, to smash AJ’s nose. Deontay can stand in the next county while launching his bombs.

      Playing devil’s advocate for a moment, I think these recent big tests–Klit and Povetkin–only help Joshua. Deontay’s sole meaningful opponent to date is the slick yet old and cautious Ortiz, who took him into very deep waters. AJ doesn’t move as well as the Cuban. But he too has fight-ending power, and something of a chin, eh?

  4. Joshua is overrated, Povetkin is a 39 yo small tomato can and he gave him trouble. Wilder will KO him after he disposes of Fury and the belts will be all back in the USA where they belong.

    1. Tomato can? Povetkin is a highly skilled world class fighter. That was a good fight and a great KO. First one to stop Povetkin. Good performance.

    2. Povetkin: Golden medalist at the olympic games, not golden gloves at the bar tournement in Alabama.

  5. Anyone who would describe Povetkin as a tomato can clearly don’t know what they are talking about. Yes, he is world class. Povetkin is a bada*s and a highly skilled boxer that will give anyone a tough match no matter who you are and like I said before, never been stopped. Even a prime Klitsckho couldn’t stop him.

  6. Very good fight and a close one. Alexander was quick and quite effective in the short range taking advantage in the first part of the fight which took the full attention of Joshua. However by using his jab, he was able to correct this situation and kept the proper distance that allowed him to connect his powerful right hand. A good and deserved victory in front of a difficult rival with very nice knock downs.

    1. Nicely analyzed, Tango.

      Agree–hats off to Povetkin, who at 39 saved some of his best work for last. Joshua’s destruction of him took patience and a mid-fight correction.

      What do you think the fight says about AJ’s development? I’d say he’s proven again he can dig for answers and find them, even when he looks (temporarily) vulnerable.

      1. Arjay Cee: You are nice as usual :-). Fully agree he was vulnerable but he was able to react as required by properly controlling the infiltrating Povetkin’s punches that bother him so much during the first part of the fight. He is still very young and in a learning mode which he does correctly because with no doubts this experience would be of great benefits for his career since Potvekin is a first class boxer. In my opinion, I don’t think that Wilder would be much of opposition to the bright future of his career since Wilder himself still has a lot of work to do in order to improve his self confidence while in the ring which I noticed it is usually very low. If Joshua is able to connect some precise punches at the beginning of this potential fight such a low confidence would be totally lost and the fight over at no time.
