    Wach was pretty solid back in the day, not sure about now though, I see many boxers with supposed solid chins get KO’ed easily when they get older.
    Povetkin is a good example, did not look as solid against Price, or of course Joshua as he did in his former years.

    Anything but huge headache for Wach would surprise me. Whyte will KO him within 7.

    Nah, the ref will be quick to wave it off to ensure a TKO before Whyte breaks his fists agains Wach's chin.

    He may KO Wach with a body punch - Whyte is good body puncher and Povetkin hurt Wach to the body while couldn't hurt him at all to the head

    If Dillion lands his left hook on the button this old version of Wach will go to sleep...

    Wach will be 40 y/o in 10 days time, is 2-3 in his last 5 fights (both wins against scrubs), is way past his best and has taken a ton of brain trauma and abuse throughout his career, and suffered the first legitimate stoppage loss of his career earlier this year, a fight where he took a ton more brain abuse from a very hard puncher. Whyte is one of the hardest punchers in the division, is in his prime and is much younger and fresher so I wouldn't be surprised if Wach were to taste the canvas at this stage of his career fighting a puncher with legit one punch KO power.

    I suspect Whyte hits at least as hard as Bakole if not harder, so Wach is in trouble.

    You do know that Wach tested positive for PEDS after this fight, right?

    I reckon a stoppage on his feet, but no knockdown. There's really no need for Wach to take a load of punishment in what is just a stay busy fight for Whyte, and the ref will not hesitate to stop this quickly if Wach starts taking too many shots.

    Probably not, unless Whyte is still on PEDs of course. If Robert Helenius can survive 12 rounds I don't see why Wach can't.
