I’ll be shocked if Rahman lasts 3 rounds.

It will not be a shock. Povetkin is over-rated who got beat by a cruiser weight

If Rock wins, it just puts more dark shadows over the HW division. Potchicken hopefully wins and wins big to help everyone forget his sorry performance against Huck.

If Rahman is 240 or below he has ahuge shot. Povetkin fights to the level of his opponent and recently the Rock has not been at a high level. i hope Rock wins, a lot of it will hang on how hard rock has trained for this fight.

Swedish Boxing Fan

The 39 year old former undisputed and two-time Heavyweight Champion of the World Hasim “The Rock” Rahman (50-7-2, 41 KOs) is back in action? Well I truly hope it is what his team members says becouse this will be Hasim Rahman’s absolutly final “world title” fight unless it ends up in a close decision or in a highly disputed way. If it is like they say I will even more look forward for this fight becouse they have a true point, all fights we have counted Rahman out, he have proven the opposite and Rahman haves the tools to put on a contest against 33 year old and undefeated Alexander Povetkin. Povetkins will be better in the ring and haves almost same tools but he haven’t counted out Rahman becouse he knows that Rahman got long time ring expearence, heavy punch-power, streanght and a heavy jab so if Rahman is fired up, Povetkin must count in those things or an upset will be made. They are close in sice with Rahman being 189 cm tall and Povetkin is 188 cm but Rahman has reach advantage with his 208cm against Povetkin’s 191cm so 16cm in advantage for Rahman! No to the matter of a “world title fight” becouse it is like we all know, NOT A WORLD TITLE FIGHT!!! Wladimir Klitschko is the true world heavyweight champion with having all major world title belts (Lineal, WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO) including the true WBA title and only his older brother Vitali haves the WBC belt, making him as the 2nd possible recognised world champion. I hope Rahman wins becouse I have been a longer time fan of his boxing career and wish he could get an good end of it and the fact that Povetkin have disspapointed many of his fans and the man who was supposted to fight Wladimir in the end of 2008 have ducked Wladimir Klitschko for 4 years now witch is sad for a fighter of his possible calibur to bring on an interesting fight and Povetkin haven’t showed any interest in fighting the real champ and that is just sad for all.

he cant control his weight.

Agreed. Povetkin is technically very well schooled, throws very good combo’s. Problem is he seems to underestimate his opponents and not train enough at times (like against Huck).

If Rahman wants to win he’d better come in below 240 pounds. :shock:

Posted September 21, 2012 3:08 am 


Even if he were to blow Rahman out in one round what’s he gonna do next? Fight Holyfield? (Actually that could happen). He’s afraid to fight the K Bros. so what’s the point of him even sticking around if he doesn’t aspire to be the best? Then again maybe he’s a man who knows his limitations and is content with beating old men and fringe contenders.

Does anyone know how mucn Rahman weighs for this match ?

the voice of reason

Povetkin, on his night, is better than people seem to realize. Watch his fight against boswell for proof of this. His problem is that his form varies from fight to fight (like his poor performance against chagaev) – i think this will be very interesting

If Rahman wins it will not exactly be a shock the world moment, when he beat Lewis that was a shock the world moment, this would not come close to that
