    When did Povetkin get out of the hospital with COVID? In the fourth he could have been hurt badly.

    COV-ID, age, and a long career over two combat sports have left us with a shot Sasha. This win means even less now than the first fight would have been.

    As expected. Povetkin is a really skilled boxer, but he is 41. His defensive reactions are obviously fading, every single jab of Whyte was just bouncing off Povetkin's head.

    First fight was very competitive, Whyte was ahead due to 2 knockdowns before being knocked out by Godly Boxing from the Architect Povetkin.

    That was sad to watch Povetkin as I have been saying for ages has been declining noticeably from fight to fight and he looked shot beyond belief tonight. So slow, his reflexes and timing are done and his legs have completely gone. His handlers never should have allowed him to take the fight. In fact, I'm disgusted they did. Even the Povetkin of the Hunter fight would've beaten Whyte, let alone the one who fought AJ and Hughie. And prime Pov beats Whyte ten times out of ten

    Even with the knockout win, Whyte looked cagey as hell in there. Just imagine what he will look like if he ever gets the rematch with Joshua.

    How on earth was Povetkin cleared to fight? He's looking like Joe Biden climbing the stairs.
    He looked sickly in there. Barely able to walk let alone fight.
    Whyte did what he had to do, but this was another bad night for boxing.
