Povetkin could win. He's well schooled and still has power. He's also old, no longer on the gear, and looks like he's slowly slipping.

Whyte is a very good heavyweight, and probably deserves to be ranked in the top 5.

It's a good fight, but the most likely result is Whyte on points. Both have the power to stop the other though, and I wouldn't go near this gambling wise.

Sounds very dodgy. As did the split from Tibbs. What has he been up to out there?

I think Whyte needs ju*ce to win fights......don't be surprised if he gets caught again.
He's really suspect imo. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets done again.

We were never really told what happened last time either. Still a big question mark over that for me.

There should be no exemption to quarantine.

It’s obvious and his performance vs Rivas showed it. He’s a fighter who struggles going 12 rounds and fades badly. The fight vs Rivas? Got dropped then come on strong in the final few rounds, give me a break. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s as bad as Miller but obviously has a more sophisticated routine.
