Great performance by whyte? Are you serious? Povetkin wasn't fit to fight!

    The commentators alluded to something being off with Povetkin's legs in round one and I didn't like the way he ambled to the ring. His legs just did not look like they had much strength in them even during the ring walk. But it's disgusting the way E-Hearn and Team Whyte are carrying on and the fact that not one member of the Sky team or at least I didn't see them if they did mentioned how shot Povetkin looked. There's no ambiguity whatsoever here he looked absolutely awful from the opening bell and the decline is extreme to say the least.

    And if it was Biden, the media would be telling us he won by ko!

    Hawling alluded to it as soon as the fight began on dazn. Blind Freddy could see Pov wasn't right actually Blind Freddy might have beaten him tonight!

    Biden did win by KO.

    One thing I am in impressed with though is that Povetkin took some solid shots without going down.

    The only punching Biden has ever done is in the rear of minors.

    They didn`t took a thing. There was a rematch clause and obviously he was forced to take the fight.
    And no the first fight was competitive. Povetkin was landing on Whyte and while he was shot to ***** in the first fight, he still have some hand speed, and footwork was way better.
    Now he could barely move, and was throwing punched from the other side of the ring. His speed, explosiveness, reflexes, energy, balance, holy hell f**** it everything was 100% gone.

    I would go as far as saying in relation to Povetkin tonight that I have never seen a fighter as unfit to enter the ring.

    :lol: There are 40 + y/o fighters who despite being way past their best still look pretty good and then there are ones who look old and decrepit and a mere shell of their former selves and Povetkin looked positively ancient and it was sad to see.

    Just look at 44:25 when Povetkin going on the steps, his f***** hands are on his legs, like helping them to climb the stairs .....
    His legs were shot even at the weight in wow! :D

    Povetkin took the last boxing paycheck. He didn't even train.

    He probably train for less than a month, but it was quite obvious he is so out of shape. Seeing someone somehow weighting more than his previous fight, yet he is looking smaller and in the same time softened ain`t a good sign. Just look at his arms at the weight in, they look terrible.

    One thing I have noticed is that Whyte never seems to get credit for any of his wins
