Michael Hunter has discussed his clash with former world title challenger Alexander Povetkin in the run-up to their Saudi Arabia clash.

The ex-cruiserweight, now making waves in the top division, is aiming to steal the show against the controversial Russian this Saturday.

A win for Hunter could put him closer to a world title show.

Here’s what ‘The Bounty’ had to say:

On fighting in Saudi Arabia: “This has been a beautiful experience. This is definitely the biggest fight to happen out here in Saudi Arabia. Being the co-feature, I get to be part of making this event as special as possible.”

On his preparation this week: “I meditate and eat my vegetables. I’m a fighter. I’ve been at this a long time so I know how to stay cool, calm and collected.”

On his prediction for Saturday: “It’s going to be fireworks on Saturday night on DAZN. I am looking to steal the show. I’ll always try to compete with the other people on the card.

“I look at everyone on the card before I fight to do my homework and research. I will bring my best. As the co-feature it is my job to deliver an exciting performance.”


The full main card features four heavyweight fights including the much-anticipated world championship main event.

Opening the card is Filip Hrgovic (9-0, 7 KOs) against Eric Molina (27-5, 19 KOs). Followed by Dillian Whyte (26-1, 18 KOs) against Mariusz Wach (35-5, 19 KOs).
