Prediction,

Fury has been at this level twice, lost, he boxed well against Parker, Parker couldn't get to him, he just didn't do enough himself to win, but against Pulev, it was a worse defeat, he started well, but he got cut bad, and from round 4 or 5 onwards (apart from round 8, when he hurt Pulev bad) it was all Pulev.

Povetkin is very good, was a great amateur, is a veteran. Povetkin was terrible against Klitschko, but he rebuilt, got win after win, and 5 years later, he fought Joshua, did well, had a good start, but Joshua stopped Povetkin in 7.

Povetkin is coming off a damaging loss, and 11 months out, Fury has been much more active, had 2 tune ups since the Pulev loss, Povetkin has had none since the Joshua loss, Povetkin hasn't got back into that winning mentality, not always an issue for fighters, but it can be. Fury's loss to Pulev was even after Povetkin's loss to Joshua, he has had 3 fights since Povetkin's last fight, so activity is well on Fury's side.

Povetkin is 39, that's old, especially for a small heavyweight, he doesn't have too many miles, but he took damage against Joshua, and he has been in some tough fights, the miles probably haven't caught up with him yet, but if not, he will still be declining just because of age. Fury is 24, very young, especially for a heavyweight, time pressure is definitely not an issue for Fury, provided he doesn't take too much damage, he should be at his best in 5 years or more.

I wasn't impressed by Fury against Peter, and against Pulev, he looked worse than he did against Parker, I question how good a trainer Peter Fury is, fighting heritage doesn't make you a good boxing trainer, Tyson left him, he doesn't have much experience, was as bad as a boxer can be when he was boxing, but that isn't to say he can't be a good trainer, it is only that he hasn't proved he is.

Povetkin is a devastating puncher, if he was bigger, he would be one of the biggest punchers in the division, I don't think Fury has fought a puncher like Povetkin apart from Parker, and even he doesn't hit as hard, so Fury's chin will be properly tested. Fury hurt Pulev, he wasn't almost done, but his legs were unsteady, was dazed, Fury is not a puncher, 52% is not high, especially for a heavyweight, I was surprised Fury hurt Pulev, he is certainly not a devastating puncher, there was nothing on his shots against Parker. Fury might have underrated power, especially given he's still maturing, but Povetkin is definitely the puncher in this fight.

Povetkin is more experienced, has the great amateur background, might be the technically better, has good head movement, Povetkin cuts down the reach of his opponent like Tyson used to (not as well as Tyson, but the similarity is there), has good variety, attacks the body, and although he doesn't look like a well schooled fighter, with his come forward style, and leads with power shots rather than getting his opponent in position with the jab, the right hand and left hook are well timed, accurate shots as well as hard shots.

Fury might be the technically better in this fight, Povetkin has been out for a while, his timing might be off, he might take a few rounds to settle. Fury proved he was techncially good against Parker, brilliant movement, good defence off the ropes, and for 3 rounds, he seemed too slick for Pulev, Pulev struggled to get into range to land. At Povetkin's age, he is probably losing agility and foot speed, which means when he is at a distance where Fury (with more reach) can land, but Povetkin can't land because he is too far out, it might take Povetkin an extra split second to get into range to land, and that could be important, because if that's the case, Fury can pick Povetkin off if he has the speed, timing, and moves as fast as he can after landing the 1, 2 or just the jab.

I don't think Hughie has the potential to be anywhere near as good as Tyson, and I don't think he has improved much in the last couple of years, I might be wrong, you can't take much from tune ups, he did have a bad cut against Pulev, but I don't think he is improving much, and I definitely think a prime Povetkin beats him, but Povetkin is past his best, and if he has declined a lot since his last fight, and the layoff is a factor, I think Fury has a good chance of a win.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was a draw, I think Povetkin is better, but Fury might have enough advantages, it is a very tough fight to call. I think Povetkin still has enough to win this fight, I don't think Fury is really improving, I think Povetkin is slightly better than Pulev, and I think he wins this, but maybe by MD.

Prediction,
I'd say it's much closer than most boxing commentators have this. Hughie is a good boxer, and has the ability to clinch close and jab at range. He might opt into a boring fight in order to win on points, since that's what I believe it the only way he'll win. Povetkin is a shell of his past, although he probably has enough to trump Hughie. It really all depends on the condition of Povetkin after that long layoff and AJ knockout.

I'd say it'll go the distance, and can go either way depending on the condition and strategy of both fighters. Gun to my head, Povetkin wins by a close margin.

Ok, I really overestimated Fury. He was shit. He had no game-plan, didn’t let his hands go and let a basically 40-year old land the obvious overhead right over and over.

Poor... very poor from the self-proclaimed “top 5”

Guy Incognito's picture

Hughie Fury wins a relatively close decision. I wouldn't be surprised if Fury gets robbed by the judges yet again.

Hughie Fury got dominated

Guy Incognito's picture

I admit it was a close fight, and it could have gone either way, but I felt Fury edged it. However the judges were far too generous towards Povetkin. Fury did not get dominated, and he didn't deserve those scorecards. I don't understand why Fury is always getting bad decisions. He deserves better.

Maybe because he doesn't do enough to win rounds. He's lazy and tries to pinch rounds rather than win them outright. He's far too defensive.

Don't think Hughie Fury has ever heard of a right hand

Champion97's picture

Good fight. I thought Fury was boxing very well in the early rounds, Povetkin's age was a factor, his feet seemed slower, his timing was off, but was the fight went on, Povetkin was able to get close, was patient, and his timing got better as the fight went on, and Fury wasn't offensively good enough to do the better work, he landed the cleaner shots in the early rounds, caught Povetkin on the counter, but he couldn't produce the output as the fight went on.

Fury is getting better at what he's always done well, but at this level, that isn't much use when you are not working on your weaknesses, and I don't think Fury has worked on any of his weaknesses or mistakes, he just keeps trying to do the same thing, and against top 10 heavyweights, it doesn't work. Fury moves far too much in the early rounds, he doesn't need to jump out of range and sprint around the ring, against guys like Pulev and Povetkin, just small movements, use of the jab, lateral movement is good when the opponent tries to commit, but if the opponent is patient, waiting for you to make a mistake, you are just moving, draining the legs, for no reason.

Fury tired in the second half of the fight not because he doesn't have better stamina than Povetkin, but because he wasted a lot of gas in the tank by moving too much, you can't move like that for 36 minutes, under pressure, and in the second half, Povetkin would just let Fury move, wait for him to stop moving briefly, and then he'd let the shots go, and at that point, Povetkin had the better of him, because Fury doesn't block, doesn't pivot.

Povetkin is a good opponent for heavyweight prospects, he is old, he is well past his prime, he isn't shot, but he can't repeat his performance from the Joshua fight, he is only getting worse, which means he isn't too high risk.

Very good write up mate.

I agree particularly with your assessment of too much movement. He reminds me a bit of Lucian Bute when he came back and had the shakes. Too much movement and burning nervous energy. It was no surprise that fight developed like it did. Commentators for sky sports expecting Provetkin to tire later on but I thought Fury would be the one to tire - and he was.

That's the trouble with a boxer vs a puncher, the boxer needs to have the stamina to keep the puncher at arms length for 12 rounds (or close to). Provetkin wore Fury down until he was getting into range at will.

What does this say for Fury? Not much at all. I've always rated Provetkin, I expected him to win this fight but there's no doubt he's slowed down and not as good as he was. I thought his experience allowed him to judge the distance perfectly. Fury got out hustled and out lasted by a 39 year old, that's poor. There's a reason Fury has come up short at world level 3 times and it's not down to the judges!

He has a shit style in my opinion because he's not good enough to get by using it. He's got Broner syndrome, which is trying to imitate someone else (Mayweather) and not being good enough to. Hughie just tries to be Tyson. How much this is down to Peter Fury I'm not sure. Tyson is an elite boxer for a heavyweight, Hughie isn't.

It won't happen because of the family thing but Hughie should ditch his dad and find someone in the mould of Mannie Steward. He needs to change his style but I fear it may be too late.

Champion97's picture

Cheers mate.

I thought he might tire, Povetkin looked very poor in the first 2 rounds, but Fury tired against Pulev and Parker, too much unnecessary movement.

Fury wore himself down as much Povetkin did, Povetkin just had to be patient, wait for Fury to stop moving, Fury makes himself predictable by moving aimlessly like that. Povetkin seemed frustrated at the start, and Fury was boxing well, but at 39, when you are slower, and have been out of the ring, your timing will be off, same with Pulev, he was coming off 18 months out, so that might have been more a factor than Fury boxing well in the early rounds.

I agree in part, but to be fair, I think this was a close fight and so was the Parker fight, the judges didn't agree, maybe Fury's punches looked better on TV than they were.

'He's got Broner syndrome, which is trying to imitate someone else (Mayweather) and not being good enough to. Hughie just tries to be Tyson. How much this is down to Peter Fury I'm not sure. Tyson is an elite boxer for a heavyweight, Hughie isn't', hit the nail on the head pal!

I don't think it's too late because we haven't seen him take too much damage, he is only 24, that is very young for a heavyweight, he isn't inexperienced.

Fury is getting better at the things he's always done well, but that is not good enough at this level, you have to make tweaks and work on your weaknesses, Peter Fury needs to help Fury find the balance between being there to be hit, and draining the legs with unnecessary movement, if he does that, he will be a better fighter, but that isn't the only thing, I think what you've said seems harsh but is true, and offensively, he isn't good, has no variety, isn't accurate, I don't think he is a talented fighter, but I definitely think he can improve a lot, he will never be a top 5 heavyweight, but he can be better than he is now, because he has made sacrifices, has the dicipline, he just has a lot of things to work on.

I was actually rather impressed by Povetkin’s performance boxing wise. He went to the body early and tried to establish his range. I think he managed distance very well, just outside of Fury’s jab and then cutting it quickly with combinations. Povetkin managed out outbox Fury despite the latter’s height and reach advantages, which I find very impressive! The Russian did look old and he his without doubt past his prime, but I think he showed some clever skills and patiently boxed his way to a decision. I gave Fury rounds 1, 2, 3 and 10 and Povetkin the rest, which translates to a scoring of 116:112 for the Russian. An interesting chess game of a fight!
