coming up on PPV in December...
Was thinking this today seems like Whyte might get away with the failed test the amount of time its taking and hes lost his mandatory position so it makes sense, not sure who wins Whyte might look bad without PEDs and Povetkin is old

Good fight, if you ignore all the failed tests. What is it, 4 or 5 between them?

If I am honest, I would rather see Chisora Povetkin and Whyte Parker 2 rather than Chisora Parker and this.

Doubt Povetkin took this training camp too seriously knowing the average Joe he was up against but against Whyte? He’ll know that’s a tough one. He looked very good vs AJ.

Povetkin should retire. He's had a good career is still healthy and fit but he's not winning any titles now and he's too classy to hang round and become a journeyman. Whyte beats him on points after probably being knocked down once

I'd rather see Whyte fight Hunter instead of Povetkin sure he's the bigger scalp on paper but I just don't think he has much left in the tank and should be a routine win for Whyte.

It makes sense for Whyte. Big name, known well in the UK, but looks ready for the taking.

Only thing I would say is that Hughie and Hunter are both more mobile than Whyte. Povetkin is still dangerous, and could hurt Whyte if he can catch him, which is possible when you look at some of Whyte's past performances.

I reckon Dillian takes it by late stoppage though. As long as whatever happened last year hasn't taken too much away from him.

I'll bet, Povetkin is so ripe for the taking it is such a good fight to make, Povetkin still being a good name on the record and being well over the hill. Shit PPV main event though as Whyte should walk through Povetkin comfortably.
IF he is in shape and that if a pretty big if.

Whyte of the Wach fight loses to Povetkin.

He's the Can-Man. Anybody CAN get it.


Unless he don't fancy it, then he'll turn down an eliminator as good as look at it.

I hope this doesn’t happen as Povetkin needs to retire. He’s had a long, tough career & was showing worrying signs in his last fight.

When you’re nearly 40 & are walking to the wrong corner after been hurt numerous times by a smaller heavyweight who’s not one of the big hitters in the division it’s not a good sign

Or maybe he's in a combat sport where sometimes getting hurt is part of the job and doesn't automatically mean you are shot to shit or dieing.

Povetkin is definitely not the same fighter he once was, but he's definitely still a tough night's out. Young hungry guy like Hunter learned that the hard way. Still, I think he seems an easier fight than someone like Hunter even though I scored the fight to Povetkin. We're talking about an old fighter that can break down at any minute.

Would prefer to see him fight Ortiz at this point. Big fan of Dillian but he’s not doing himself any favours avoiding Ortiz, win lose or draw just get it done and move on.

I would have like to seen it 18 months ago but not now. Ortiz looked like an old man in the second Wilder fight, yes he outboxed Wilder, which everyone does, but he was literally tottering about, he was so slow and plus now he's been brutally sparked twice. Povetkin isn't what he was but he's younger than Ortiz and seems more solid on his legs, Povetkin needs to retire soon, Ortiz needs to retire now.
