Hunter Knows He’s A “Problem” For Povetkin
With a chance to become the mandatory challenger for the WBA world heavyweight title, Michael Hunter will do anything to send Alexander Povetkin home with a loss.
“My style, movement and boxing IQ is going to be a problem for just about anybody, it just happens to be Povetkin who is the man in front of me,” said Hunter leading into their fight on the Joshua-Ruiz II undercard. “I chose Povetkin because he is one of the toughest guys and I knew he would take this fight. I have no fear, fear plays no part in this. When I perform at my peak nobody can beat me.
“It’s going to be hard for him to beat me, I’m going to give it all I got. I want to perform at my peak and I hope to outperform everybody on this card and steal the show. I have got to prove myself once again. Whether you’re the underdog or the favourite it’s all the same because I feel like I am the best fighter out there.”
“I thrive on making guys quit so I’m definitely going to push for it. I’m always pushing for the KO. I’m a boxer first though and I’m certainly going to be boxing his shoes off! If I see any quit in him then I am going to take advantage of that.”
