    Whyte was terrible in his recent matches. He was knocked down by Parker & Rivas, and was pathetic against a shot Wach.

    Povetkin on the other hand was robbed against a 31 year old Hunter.

    I say Povetkin will KO Whyte in round 10 with his classic left hook.

    Povetkin via mid rounds KO. Out cold KO that is.

    Povetkin is almost 41 years old. Would love to see him win but don't expect it.

    I would have comfortably said Whyte by KO 3-4 months ago but now that's hes not sparring and parted ways with a very good trainer... I'd lean towards a Povetkin UD

    As they say you’re only as good as your last fight. People did the same with Fury before the Wilder rematch and theyre doing the same here. Whyte will be too big too strong for Povetkin come august 22nd.

    Prime Povetkin and its a different story

    Rooting for Povetkin. But due to Sasha's age, I expect Whyte to win.

    When are they fighting? Whyte should win if he’s in shape but if he’s not he might get stopped by Povetkin.

    I think Povetkin is the better boxer but Whyte is younger and that could prevail, but still Povetkin is dangerous and it's a 50-50 fight...

    I voted for Povetkin as Whyte looked garbage last time out

    He is getting on in year's, but I think he can still beat Whyte

    Dillian is very basic

    If Parker was a little more aggressive, he would have smashed him imo

    Whilst I want Sasha to win, I think Whyte will bully him. Too young and big. If the ref lets him fight like he did Vs Parker, he will fight dirty too.

    Povetkin still has enough in the tank to beat Whyte. I expect him to derail Dillian's title shot.

    I hope that Whyte will win. Partly because I find him hilarious. But also to listen to all of the excuses they will come up with to keep on denying Whyte a title shot. Some of the best entertainment in boxing is it's politics. It better be because the actual fights never happen anyway. :)
