    Just disappointing the fight was called "Roids on the Rock"

    Would have been more inclined to pay for it

    Flip argument, why on earth would you ditch a top class trainer and in the midst of a global health pandemic with inevitable travel issues etc to move to some obscure training camp in Spain?;

    You’ve missed the point. Whyte has been whingeing that Povetkin’s a coward and his fictional covid delayed this fight twice. This needless delay is now all on Whyte and his team. I don’t know of any other pro athletes who have got themselves stranded abroad ahead of a major event and been unable to travel. They get exemptions.

    Whyte has been hiding from UKADA in Portugal for months, so I have very little sympathy for him.

    He is going to Roided off his nut. Who is even training him?

    Whyte is still training with Xavier Miller out in Portugal with Harold Knight brought into the team as a second pair of eyes.

    I just find this Portugal thing bizarre. A known drug cheat out in Portugal, it stinks.

    I don't rate Whyte, I just don't know how he is billed as PPV. He's never fought for a world title let alone held one.

    I really hope Sasha puts an end to this nonsense.

    Yep. Portugal’s in the red zone so can’t send the drug testers out. He’ll be on all sorts.

    When did Whytes start taking his camps to Portugal? Was it before or after he pissed hot?

    Peds by the Med would be a much more appropriate strapline for this fight.

    Povetkin just has to win now, if this goes past 5 rounds that jacked up melon head is going to start gassing like the 3am Chicken Corner Brawler that he is and then hopefully it's just a case of when, I'm absolutely sick of Whyte and everything he does and doesn't bring to the table, he's just an uncoordinated mess that's soon going to be dramatically on the slide.

    Smart money's on Whyte now, wonder if Adam Smith and Johnny Nelson will discuss this issue during the build up ??
