    Whyte wins this fight 8 times out of 10.

    Povetkin landed one of the best punches of his career

    Whyte failed to jump on him when he was hurt because he respected Povs recovery abilities too much.

    Can you tell me another one that has been called that? Because I don't recall it. It's clearly Wilder's build.

    It has some ok interest for me this fight. If Povetkin can get to near where he was, he has the blueprint and confidence to take him again. He should know by now that Whyte isn't technically that sound and any loss of concentration on his part may be fatal. On Whytes side it will be interesting to see what adjustments he makes to face Povetkin. I can't see him trying to outpoint him as he knows he isnt good enough to keep it up over 12 and Povetkin has the technique to lay him open. So he may use his youthful energy to swarm him. However if Povetkin is another shade more shot because of the illness then it could be quite a one sided affair. Reckon we may get tasty KO either way.

    Im not mate

    Im annoyed promotors add clauses like this to essentially fights with no titles

    And then sell the PPV as an eliminator which it clearly wasnt after all

    Too soon. Povetkin has been struggling with COVID.

    He's not going to recover fast enough to take this fight, or any fight for that matter. I hope he'd say **** it and just retire. He doesn't need this crap from Hearn or his promoter.

    Whether its an eliminator or not, I'd happily pay for Whyte vs Povetkin tbh.

    Same with Chisora vs Usyk.

    At first I wasn't keen on those being ppv stars, but I'm a sucker for hype and they're always in good fights.

    Yea but this has nothing to do with these stupid clauses Hearn and co add to fights that should be a one off
