lol against a 40 year old and he was losing every round up until then.

Scorecards were a joke. I have Povetkin winning every round until the stoppage

38. and still a beast. was on a 8 fight winning streak after the only loss in his career against big klit.

i'm not really an aj fan, but dude got the job done against arguably the 2nd best hw today.

gotta give respect where respect is due.

No, Povetkin is 39, nearly 40, and AJ was losing every round up until then. I agree he's a better boxer than people give him credit for but he only won because Povetkin gassed out.

Yeah, he is really trying to crack that list amongst all the great white heavyweight champions which just dominated, right?

no he won cause he set povetkin up by going to the body, holding back on the right until the perfect time.

i'll be the first dude to point out aj's shortcomings, but he did work against a live, dangerous opponent. 38, 39, 40 doesn't matter- povetkin was probably the 2nd best hw in the world. he was in there to win it tonight, just ran into a better fighter.

fury-wilder is official for dec. 1, hopefully aj gets the winner. i'd pick him over either.

joshua would likely beat wilder... he's just more skilled in the ring. wilder has a heavy knockout punch though so he has a chance. but it would likely end in round 10 with a TKO win for AJ

So, at one point in history, being the just gone era, you found that as enough reason to act as if it has been dominated by white guys.

Want to sit here and list off all the heavyweight champs there have been?

Think you and the other klan members might not like the colour of the results.
