    And an old cruiserweight at that

    Come August 22nd this guy's getting knocked spark out. Guaranteed, 100%. I hope him and his trainer believe in magic, because he's going to need a lot of magic to beat Dillian Whyte. Alexander Povetkin the whole of Russia behind him couldn't beat Dillian - together. Never mind him on his own, there's not a man 225lbs on the planet who can beat him. And he ain't coming here to play games or talk nonsense, he's here to fight. And I hope Povetkins here to fight too. He talks a good game, 'I'm from Russia, I'm a tough guy, gangster', but let's have it real - Whyte means business he's going to hurt him seriously August 22nd. I hope he understands that, I his trainer understands that, I hope his wife understands that, I hope everybody understands it, because Whyte means business, He didn't come this far to play tip tap boxing. He came here to do demolition jobs on cruiserweights.

    The only man 225 pounds and 6'2" who should be at heavyweight is Usyk.

    For real though Povetkin knows he is about to get RAILED by a BIG YOUNG heavyweight

    If Whyte struggles here I don't want to hear anything from him again.

    I look forward to bringing back this thread when the NEW WBC interim heavyweight champ raises his bloodstained hands in victory.

    Than how come Whyte didn't derail 40 year old Wach?
    Whyte is derailing burgers and hot dogs in preparation to the fight.

    Back in the good old days if you were 200+ you fought at heavyweight and if you didn't you were just a *****. Now we have guys crying that a 225+ pound man should be cruiserweights. No ballsack whatsoever in that view imo

    225lb is certainly heavyweight. Sadly Povetkin is ancient in boxing terms and the odds are against him winning.

    Could
    he win?

    Yes, of course he could, and I'll be rooting for him to do just that. He's been in the top 5 HW for ages.

    Usyk has strong pedigree and could handle superheavys as an amatuer...and is young.

    Povetkin gets shutdown by any decent big men
