Michael Hunter called for a Saudi Arabia showdown against Alexander Povetkin after impressively beating Sergiy Kuzmin in New York.

'The Bounty' Hunter dominated fellow contender Kuzmin on Saturday night, dropping his man on the way to a one-sided decision verdict at the Madison Square Garden Theater.

After a sixth consecutive win at heavyweight, the 31-year old now wants another Russian assignment and has called for a Povetkin fight to land on the Andy Ruiz Jr-Anthony Joshua II undercard in Diriyah on December 7, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Speaking to DAZN after his victory, Hunter said: "I want to fight Povetkin in Saudi. Povetkin, you see me, I'm coming for you.

"I want to be out there and continue to make my claim at heavyweight.
