What a fight. I'd definitely have the winner as the #1 contender. Man, I can't believe I"m reading Hunter eased through Kuzmin. I thought Kuzmin/Dawejko was a one-off thing. Seems Kuzmin really needs more experience under his belt. Hunter has really broke out at HW. What a fighter. People thought he was a nobody after Usyk beat him. Dude has been fucking up guys a lot bigger than him.

I think Hunter's youth and better movement means he can stay out of the way of Pov's big punches and get the win on Points.

I thought Hearn wanted to make Hunter and Price on the AJ undercard?
Only way this is good if is Whyte vs Povetkin is also happening, beating Price does nothing for Hunter unless its a keep busy he just beat Kuzmin who beat Price

I think the same.

IMO, Hunter has been massively underrated by a lot of boxing fans. I also think he will shine as a HW, whereas he was always a bit drained as a CW.

If this fight happens, I expect Hunter to play it smart / safe and win a wide UD, but I'd LOVE to see a KO.
What a statement that would make.
 
Youth, movement, agility and durability. Hunter isn't a body beautiful guy; it made me wonder why he was a cruiser. He looks much more comfortable at 15 stone 9 than 14 stone 4. A solid jab and a fast right should be enough to to avoid that tasty Povetkin left hook. Hunter got beat by Usyk at cruiser and probably should have been stopped late on, but he's been enjoyable at heavyweight.

Decent fight! How far can Hunter go at heavyweight?

Is Povetkin still a threat, or just a gatekeeper? Will it even BE Povetkin, or Pedvetkin?

The mind boggles with possibilities...........

I think Povetkin is probably done as a top class fighter now. He looked poor versus Price and Hughie Fury.

Will still be dangerous however. Can punch, and has great experience and pedigree.

Fancy Hunter on points, it's probably the most likely result at this point.
