    Hopefully should give Povetkin enough time to recover. I heard he was bringing in sparring partners just a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully by March he should be back in fighting form. A must win for Whyte, hope he can do it and go on to have a big year.

    You don’t get it that’s fine. Quite clearly I’m sticking up for Pov who’s been wronged

    Povetkin looked shot to pieces last time.
    Now he's been in hospital with the dreadful coronavirus.
    He's 41 years old.
    Can't see him winning. I'd laugh if he did though.

    You're sticking up for Pov, by saying its an injustice that he's making one of his biggest ever purses to fight a guy he's just knocked out?

    Yeah, sure.

    You sound like a women trying to twist stuff. It’s not a monster payday, he’s had bigger pay days, much bigger. I’d rather him not have to do a job twice and be held back. Any clearer ya dumb ****

    Will you riot again if Povetkin loses, Chuck?

    Sound like a woman? OK.

    He's getting paid millions to knock out someone he's already knocked out.

    How can you possibly call that an injustice?

    He could turn the fight down and pursue a shot against Fury I suppose, but it looks like Fury is gunning for AJ.

    As far as stay busy fights go whilst he awaits a title shot, this is literally as good as it gets.

    Whyte is not a stay busy fight, it’s a fight where he should’ve progressed closer to his shot, not having to fight Whyte until Whyte wins. Way to risky for a stay busy fight, it was a big hurdle at his age to overcome, now you see nothing wrong with him having to do it again ?? It’s you who doesn’t like Pov. He’s being stitched up

    The delay in this fight may benefit Whyte, I think he may beat Pov this time.

    If he doesnt, then he needs to re-evaluate his career, most people were saying povetkin was washed up BEFORE Joshua beat him, so how does it look if Whyte gets beaten twice by 40+ Sasha.

    If Whyte does win he gets completely ICED by Wilder. Ive never thought Whyte had the style to beat Wilder and even though I dont particularly rate Wilder - he makes short work of Whyte. That right hand would not miss Whytes head

    The only people ranked higher than Whyte are Fury, AJ, Wilder and Povetkin.

    The guy is getting millions to knock someone out he's already knocked out. Honestly only haters of Povetkin have an issue with this fight.

    Why do you hate Povetkin, why don’t you want what’s best for a great fighter ??

    I'm not the one stating an easy payday is an injustice.

    I want to see AJ and Fury fight.

    So that leaves the beat two opponents being Wilder or Whyte.

    The Whyte fight is higher reward for lower risk. So whilst I would love to see him face Wilder and knock him out, this fight is literally the next best thing.
