    Something is amiss, he was unsteady on his legs during the ring walk.

    Probably offered less money if he delayed it.

    This is easily the best victory of Whyte's career to date.

    Povetkin was a consensus top 4 HW and coming off a ko victory over Whyte.

    In fact not just the best, this is probably the peak of his career.

    I don't see him beating Fury, AJ or Wilder so a top 3 victory would really surprise me.

    Nah man...in the first fight he was still moving his head, this time he looked like a drunk.
    His trainer did the right thing to pull him out of there....yeah Povetkin shown before that he can find a way to win etc, but better retire with your health than get brain damaged

    Painful to watch Povetkin in this state.

    He looked shot to pieces in August.
    No surprise at all that he looked like a corpse here at 41 and after having covid.

    Something very fishy went on. Povetkin had weak legs before the opening bell.

    Whyte isn't beating AJ or Fury, especially not with that kind of balance.

    Seriously as long as "proper" boxing gives us nights like this then we can't moan about youtubers fighting

    This is the hardest sport in the world but it's being disrespected and killed

    The best fighter in the world fights tin cans that don't fight back. The other decent fighters don't have any mainstream appeal, and the big promoters push this **** on us

    No wonder Tyson Holyfield or Logan Paul Michael Jackson does numbers
