This is the last opportunity for Dillian Whyte. The ‘Body Snatcher’ suffered a damaging defeat last year against former champion Alexander Povetkin, and he will know that if he fails again, his dream of becoming world champion would be probably over.
In the first match, it looked as Whyte was on his way to victory as he controlled the bout’s early stages. In the fifth round, though, things took a bad turn for him, and he suffered a painful knockout. Surely that fifth round will be on his mind as he will be conscious that the Russian just need a right big punch to end it there and then.

Who will win Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin 2 fight?
We believe that Whyte has what it takes to hurt Povetkin, but it is difficult to say that he will stop it. To avoid the same outcome of their first match, Whyte would have to fight smart and keep his gloves up all the time. Povetkin is now 41 years old and surely hasn’t been in great form recently with a respiratory issue, so this has to be considered as well.
We believe that this will be a tight affair, but that backing Whyte looks the best option here. We expect that he has learned from his mistakes and that he will adopt a more cautious approach this time. It might not be a fight you will remember forever, but it should be enough for getting the judges to give him the nod and send him to the front of the queue for a chance to win a world title.
