    And Dillian Shyte wasn't lucky against Parker?

    That was the definition of luck. Then ran like a coward from a rematch.

    Nothing lucky whatsoever about Povetkins punch, he's done it many times before.

    Povetkin was losing the fight but then that lucky punch (right uppercut) came at the right time and right place.

    He wasn't getting battered but he definitely didn't look good

    I wasn't following the RBR while I was watching the fight so I had no idea how everyone was scoring it. Sky were acting like it was pretty one-sided and most of the interviews with British fighters, trainers and pundits etc. I've subsequently seen since the fight have been the same. However, I certainly didn't see it like that at all. Granted Whyte had that big fourth round, but I had Povetkin ahead going into it. Even though he really looked his age and noticeably slower, and it was very noticeable, he was having success to both head and body and you could see that Whyte really respected his power and was very conscious of the fact that if he made one mistake it could prove fatal for him.

    He just KTFO Whyte Cold to the canvass , why retire? At least cash-in on a rematch and another farewell fight.

    So you don't like short, compact HWs. I bet you were a big fan of the K bros ! :buenrollo:

    Losing to s smaller, much older HW maybe Dillian s/be looking for a cash out. Or he can set himself up as a good gatekeeper :nusenuse:

    I don't think that Povetkin should retire. He beat Whyte even though he got 2 KDs in the fight. So, he still has a chance to be the World Champion again IMO.

    That 's absolutely correct! Povetkin still has his future in boxing, why should he retire? I don't understand this.

    Oh im sure we are getting a good non racially biased thread from a character named "Mandingo Warrior"

    Povetkin was in the fight all the way, got up fine from 2 flash knockdowns and then iced Whyte

    Another loser who cant handle it when a white man beats a black man.. and I like Whyte, he will be back. No need to get all butt hurt just because a man with a different skin tone beat someone with the same skin tone as yours.
