    Still taking names.

    Wonder what's next for him? I'd like to see him fight Parker. That's a good fight.

    Best KO of the year, I'd say. Whyte got felled... hard! Serves Whyte right for cherry picking. He's done now.

    Hopefully this is the end of Whyte being a PPV entity.

    Be a rematch, it's the big money fight for both, Hearn would've had a clause and we can get the

    Adam Smith "oh this is all about the redemption for the body snatcher to show he is a world-level operator"

    Pointless, IMHO. How do you "redeem" yourself from a KO like that? Both men should move on...

    Povetkin should retire. Had an excellent career. Let’s all be honest, we were shocked by the state of him tonight. Completely utterly shot. I don’t want to see him getting starched in a rematch with Whyte.

    Would love it if he did as he is a shell of who he once was. That said, won’t begrudge him another payday.

    Uncle Eddie has the rematch locked in for Whyte. Rematch is 50/50 and will sell well.

    We're getting a rematch, and I really hope Povetkin knocks him again. Although, seeing the state of him last night I don't think he has much left in him.

    Povetkin does have one of the best KO reels available though. Boswell, Wawrzyk, Charr, Takam, Perez, Duhaupas, Price and now Whyte were all year top20 highlight ones.

    Respect for Povetkin. A former European, World and Olympic gold medalist as an amateur. The former WBA (regular) world champion probably has the best CV in the division. Wins over Whyte, H Fury, Price, Hammer, Rudenko, Dahaupus, Wach, Takam, Wawrzyk, Charr, Rahman, Huck, Chagaev, Byrd, Donald and a draw with Hunter. The man has never fluctuated more than 12lbs his entire career which for a heavyweight is incredible. He’s 41 next month, shot to pieces but what a pro!!!

    The last time I replayed a shot this much was John mcginn's magnificent volley against Sheffield weds.

    Got to take your hat off to povetkin he's a class act.

    Thank god you're not a boxer. What a ****ty, defeatist attitude.

    It's April 2001. Hasim Rahman has just knocked Lennox Lewis out.

    "How can Lennox Lewis "redeem" himself after a knockout like that?", he says, with the pointless disclaimer of "IMHO".

    Cue the Oh...but Lennox Lewis is a much better boxer, so he can comeback from being knocked spark out by a man who was destroyed by Oleg Maskaev.

    Whatever fits your agenda.
