    Going back to your previous comment: "I mean, Whyte fought in America in 2017 so not entirely sure what COVID has to do with that."

    You're going to need to try much harder than that to conceal your disingenuity. The decline in attendees to Whyte's bouts was caused by COVID. Prior to, he was selling out arenas or there abouts.

    Like I said, you're hater. And that's a bit obsessive. The boxer is successful in his own right, show some credit.

    Going off-topic for a moment, Whyte was smashing Povetkin from pillar to post prior to the KO, so again... all the hate among you posters has caused permanent blindness as to that fact. Yeah Whyte got KO'd with a sweet shot, I'm giving credit there. It would have KO'd most Heavyweights, who denies that.

    But Povetkin was in bad shape, with two knockdowns and losing the fight. Whyte was winning.

    Povetkin was past his best in both fights. He was a ghost in the rematch.

    Whyte is a decent heavyweight, probably top 10, but he would have his ears boxed off by Usyk or Fury. Wilder and Joshua would beat him as well.

    His box office appeal does not change this.

    It is, of course, irrelevant who was winning the fight prior to the knockout. Whyte was beating up a man he was supposed to beat up, but then get knocked out when he wasn’t supposed to. Silly Dillian.

    Dillian Whyte is still tarkin rubbish out of the side of his mouth and hoping to fight for a wurl title in Argos...

    Failing that maybe another re-match with Sizzora...

    I do not hate Whyte.
    I give him credit. He comes to fight and he is a decent heavyweight. He has made a lot of money and fair play to him.
    The only issue I have with the Dillian Whyte thing is how he has been hyped up as some sort of avoided super-contender, when really he is a man who turned down title shots and eliminators and rematches when it suited him, and whined that boxing was treating him unfairly despite being the most well paid boxer of his moderate ability level in living memory.

    Yep, similar comments about Galahad and Canelo on here.

    Whyte wasn’t ‘cleared’ the first time he got banned.

    I haven’t mentioned any decline in Whyte’s attendances. That was someone else.

    Suppose you need something to cling on to after all the turning down world title fights, getting sparked in Eddie’s back garden, failed drug tests and fake injuries. It’s looking bleak for Dirty Dillian.

    The fight wasn’t even half way done and Whyte got smashed to bits. Just cos he won 3 rounds against a 40 year old povetkin doesn’t mean that it isn’t a terrible loss for such a box office superstar master boxer Like pudding whyte

    Another day, another thread about PPV numbers and ticket sales.

    It’s not a hard argument. Whyte is entertaining he’s not been in many dull fights, he tends to KO or be KO’d. I’m rarely disappointed when I watch a Whyte fight bar the exceptions like Wach etc.

    Is Tyson Fury better? Leagues above.

    There shouldn’t be any argument to have against either.

    Just like the ‘Brook was up on the cards against Golovkin’ lot ignoring the fact he literally got his face broken barely 12 minutes into the fight.

    The key variable though is Fury fighting at 4/5am. It’s not a valid comparison.

    If Fury fought the same fighters he has done (Wallin, Schwartz) but in the UK at 10pm he’d sell better than Whyte.
