Tyson Fury believes Deontay Wilder will have too much for Alexander Povetkin when the pair meet on May 21 in Moscow, live on BoxNation.
Fury, who holds the WBO and WBA World Heavyweight Titles, was speaking with James Helder when predicting the outcome of the forthcoming WBC World Title clash: “I think Wilder will chin him! The fact is Povetkin is too small and chinny.”
Widely recognised as the number one at the weight, the unified Champion believes Povetkin will struggle with the Bronze Bomber’s size, despite having home advantage.
“He’s like a midget compared to us! Wilder is as big as me, he looks like a Lightweight!”
Povetkin lasted tasted defeat back in October 2014 after somehow hearing the final bell after being dropped by Wladimir Klitschko on multiple occasions.
“Every time Klitschko touched him he went down, how many was it? About 19 times or something!”
Fury is waiting patiently for his much anticipated rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, but is keeping a firm eye on the outcome of Wilder’s fourth defence against Povetkin.
“I’ll fight Klitschko, the winner of Povetkin and Wilder and then the winner of Martin and Joshua.”
