Povetkin vs Whyte 2: pros react to Dillian Whyte’s rematch

Dillian Whyte got his revenge quite triumphantly today in Gibraltar, stopping Alexander Povetkin in the fourth round of their great heavyweight rematch, dominating the entire fight.

Whyte (28-2, 19 KO) pretty much had his way against the aging and possibly weakened Povetkin (36-3-1, 25 KO), who just didn’t even look like the Povetkin from last August’s first fight. where he certainly felt Whyte’s shots, but he had the power in his legs to keep fighting.

That wasn’t the case in this one, as Povetkin just didn’t look in good shape. It will be thought that a tough fight with COVID-19 ruined any opportunity Povetkin had here, but he was there too, he was sanctioned and he passed medical exams and all that. Whyte was the better man here, did his job and dominated, and now he’s back in the heavyweight career looking for a world title shot.
