    Default Whyte v Povetkin 2

    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 😎

    Alexander Povetkin in hospital after testing positive for coronavirus

    Alexander Povetkin's rematch with Dillian Whyte has been postponed after the Russian was hospitalised with coronavirus.

    Whyte was seeking revenge in the ring on November 21 after his knockout defeat in August.*

    But that has been put to bed with Povetkin having contracted covid-19, with Eddie Hearn setting a new target date of January 30 for the bout.

    The promoter confirmed on Twitter: 'Unfortunately we got the news today that Alexander Povetkin is in hospital after testing positive for Covid-19.*

    'The fight will now be rescheduled to a target date of Jan 30. An announcement on our Nov 21 show will be made shortly.'

    He then teased the possibility of Whyte's next match coming against Tyson Fury.

    He tweeted: 'Dillian Whyte v Tyson Fury anyone?'

    Be honest. Who saw the headline and thought it was PEDS again?

    Eddies been all over social media to get the Whyte fight on. Said it at the start Whyte should walk away from the Povetkin rematch if the Fury fight came up. Then there were probably contractual issues with it, now not so sure as Povetkin can't fight.

    Shame about the delay. Nothing but respect with those fighters that get back in with someone who kayoed them.

    And I lost respect for those that don't and go a different route.

    History suggests it's not often reversed mind.

    Always testing positive for fucking something, those Russians!

    Thing is Fury and this German fella have already agreed purses etc and all that was left was for ze German to sign the contract within 24 hours.
    I'd be fucking amazed if he didn't sign it and get a decent payday given he's a nobody.
    Or does Hearn wade in with a big pay off for him to step aside?

    Derek has offered to step up for the trilogy fight with Dillian.

    As much as I would love to see Whyte vs Fury I think it causes too many problems. IF Whyte wins then you have to think there's a rematch clause in there which delays any kind of unification fight with AJ also putting a massive damper on one of the biggest fights in UK history (AJ vs Fury). If Fury wins then what does Whyte do? I doubt Povetkin would want the rematch with Whyte on a two fight losing streak.

    Michael Hunter has offered to fight Whyte on the 21st. Plenty of options out there it seems.

    Yep honestly my first thought was he got popped for dirty steaks again . Be very interesting to see who Whyte goes with as a replacement if at all. Certain mental situation facing the guy who just separated you from the feelings in your feet or some complete TBA. Just a short turn around.
