In SkySports website, Povetkin's manager stated that This content is protected . Since Whyte is the no. 1 contender against Joshua, does it mean he will lose his mandatory position to Povetkin if he loses to him? It would be awkward to see Povetkin face Joshua again so soon after his defeat. As far as I'm concerned, Povetkin would wipe the floor with Whyte. We all saw how miserable Whyte was against Parker. Unfortunately, Whyte doesn't know how to defence himself, and likes brawling. Povetkin has a very strong chin, since Whyte doesn't have the punching power of AJ, brawling against Povetkin will be his demise. Actually, I would feel bad if Whyte loses his mandatory position. Poor lad desperately wants to fight AJ again. AJ would easily demolish him though. Since their last bout, AJ got smarter, stronger and wiser. Whyte on the other hand isn't as smart as AJ. For the sake of his own health, I think Whyte should stop chasing AJ, Wilder & Fury, and should compete for titles such as intercontinental or silver heavyweight titles. There is no way that he can defeat those 3 heavyweight boxing giants. The only thing he would obtain would be heavy brain damage from the punches he takes to his head.
