The sparring that Hunter got for this fight with Ruiz Jr. could prove immensely valuable for him.
“I’m just here to perform and do my best. It went well. I was sparring Andy Ruiz, and there’s no better sparring partner to get ready for Povetkin. The preparation went well. We went, and we were in California training like man men, and everything went so smoothly. I couldn’t have asked for a better training camp to be honest,” said Hunter.
“I look to see a desperate version, a guy that is at his best, because of what people have said,” said Hunter about Povetkin. “They think he has fallen off, even though he just beat someone that is 24 [Hughie Fury]. So I think that plays a factor in it. I think we’re going to see one of the best Povetkins.”
