Dillian Whyte will meet with Alexander Povetkin in the final fight of the Fight Camp schedule, which will be held at Matchroom HQ in Brentwood(UK) on August 22.
Dillian WhyteWhile Dillian Whyte still remains the hot challenger for Fury’s WBC crown, but fight agains Povetkin must be taken siriusly. Otherwise Povetkin will become just the second man to beat him after Anthony Joshua. And that will ruin world title glory. Whyte has previously held the WBC Silver and International title, British title, WBO International title and will be defending the WBC interim heavyweight title against Povetkin. He is also on a rampaging 11-fight win streak after the loss to Anthony Joshua back in 2015 after 7th round tehnical KO.
Alexander PovetkinPovetkin last loss is to Joshua two year ago. After that he responded with a win over Hughie Fury and had a very hard-fought battle with Michael Hunter ending in a draw last December. Most impressive success comes from his amateur career. He won gold at the European Games in 2002 and 2004, World Championships in 2003, and also Olympic gold in Athens 2004.
Fight predictionThe main disadvantage for Povetkin is his age. At 40 years of age, there is a question how many performances Povetkin has left in the tank. Betting odds are extremly on Whyte side lately. For win over Povetkin as high as 1/4.
