    Default Whyte v Povetkin 2 - Sky Sports - 21/11/20

    Fair play to Whyte for getting straight back in there!
    I'd go for the very early KO if I was him.

    He'll do exactly as he did before, if anything a little more cautiously. I don't have a problem with the way he fought the first fight. It was a bolt from the blue. He was controlling Povetkin, softening him up nicely. The end was coming. He just got nailed.

    Fair play for going straight back in. At a lower level this is what ruined David Price. Whyte is made of sterner stuff than Price. He'll be fine and right whatever wrongs there were.

    Are we going to see him ko'd by an uppercut for the third time?

    Title fight, immediate rematch, fair enough. This? Not so sure.

    Povetkin should at least drag him over to Russia. Beautifully set up by Povetkin the finish was far more considered and executed than a bolt from the blue. I am not sold on Whyte ever getting much further, and if anything he has been lucky to get the opportunities he already has.

    Povetkin did what Povetkin does. Slip left with the overhand right or left hook/uppercut depending on the target presented. Whilst the mechanics were good and the intent there. It was more muscle memory for me than part of some grand scheme. No grand scheme would see Povetkin on his arse twice and looking all in before landing the fight ending blow. Povetkin has chinned many before so to that end it wasn't a bolt from the blue. But it went against the grain of the fight as it played out in front of us.

    I see the rematch going the same way in that Dillian will be in charge. He'll preach maximum violence, but self preservation will see him more cautious. Only a lunatic would come out swinging against a man who put you to sleep three months earlier. Dillian hasn't been a lunatic for years. Shame.

    Dillian is lucky as fuck he has this immediate rematch after all the WBC bollocks and lucky Povetkin and his mob are men of their word. Where was he going from here? Not back to headline Sky PPV. Huge purses. He wins the rematch and the loss is regarded a blip - like AJ-Ruiz - and the show stays on the road.

    He boxed impressive until Povetkin did that piece of art. I suspect he'll be more cautious this time, for obvious reasons, however, expect him to go mental if he hurts Pov. I have no doubt he's mentally strong enough to deal with being ironed. And from a fans perspective, should he lose so what? Povetkin is better than anyone Wilder has beat and better than all but one man Fury has beat.

    You gotta wonder about Whytes mental state as soon as Povetkin comes to centre ring from the opening Bell.
    He can talk all he likes but he'll be double wary of dropping his right hand when Povetkins in range in the rematch.
    Will it make him be cautious which plays into Povetkins hands?
    I'd come out like a fucking maniac if I was him and bully Povetkin left right and centre looking for the early KO.
    If he constantly backs Povetkin up he'll stop him, if he tries to break him down as before he'll get banged out again.
    100% looking forward to this rematch more than the first fight 😎
