Huge setback for Whyte. Reckon they will rematch

Povetkin in line for another world title fight. Donít see the attraction for him to fight Whyte, he was put down twice in the 4th. Not like it was a moody score card, he sparked him out. Heís 40, so needs to get his title shot a bit lively.

Whyte will need to beat a couple of goodend a to get back in contention, donít think heís at the top top level, think he would be a schooled by Usyk and even have trouble with Dubois. Do like him though. Game as f*ck.

I agree for the most part, but in this covid climate where the idea of big stadium fights is a pipe dream, it probably increases the likelihood of a rematch or some other second tier tear-up.

See only the big, big boys beating Usyk.

Last nights fight had a rematch clause. In many ways the rematch will have more interest than lasts night as things didnít go to plan for the home fighter.

Some great fights to be made

Whyte's boxing ability has improved considerably however this has appeared to be inversely proportional to his punch resistance.

agree, but it was one mother of a punch .

It only takes a second to get distracted enough to allow the 'lights-out' punch from your opponent.

I reckon Povetkin will do Whyte again.

And the re-match clause. I know why it's there, to give stability to the boxing divisions.
How else would AJ have got the titles back ?
And the Wilder-Fury rematch
These re-match clauses just cause stagnation in the weight divisions.
You got beat. Live with it.

One for the future. Heís 21 years old, former amateur champ and 9 and 0 as a pro.

Slaps like a young Joe C and looks susceptible to a straight punch but very aggressive with super fast hands.

I wonder if there was anything in the contract that stated where the rematch has to take place. If I was Povetkin I would drag Whyte over to Russia for the rematch... Although not sure that would make sense financially.

Personally I think Povetkin does it again no matter where the fight is. I know its an old cliche saying styles make fights but they really do and Whytes aggressive, coming forward style suits Povetkin down to the ground as he's a master at creating angles for himself to get off those big punches as we saw on Saturday.

 


Don't waste your time with jealousy. Sometimes your ahead, sometimes your behind, the race is long. But in the end it's only with yourself!!

Just watched the first round of Hearns v Hagler. The best first , probably any, round of boxing ever?
You could watch 10 , 12 round fights with less action in them.
Classic.
