Another Chance To Look Back At The Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin Boxing Match, Essex, England, 22 August 2020…

ON THE 22ND AUGUST 2020, DEFENDING WBC INTERIM CHAMPION DILLIAN WHYTE AND RUSSIAN BOXER ALEXANDER POVETKIN MET AT MATCHROOM BOXING IN BRENTWOOD, ESSEX FOR AN EXCITING BOXING MATCH. THE TWO HEAVYWEIGHTS WERE MORE THAN READY FOR THE MATCH FOLLOWING IT’S POSTPONEMENT TWICE BEFORE BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE DILLIAN WHYTE VS ALEXANDER POVETKIN MATCH (BELOW)

THE MATCH WAS ACTION PACKED, WITH DILLIAN LANDING SOME TARGETED PUNCHES ON ALEXANDER ALONG THE WAY, UNSTABLING HIM FOR A MOMENT. ULTIMATELY, ALEXANDER DEFEATED DILLIAN VIA A FIFTH-ROUND TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT (TKO) WITH A STRONG UPPERCUT TO SHATTER DILLIAN’S HOPES OF FIGHTING FOR THE WBC WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE NEXT YEAR.

 

MATTER OF FACT DILLIAN WHYTE SAID AFTER THE MATCH “I JUST GOT CLOCKED, THAT’S ALL” AND “FAIR PLAY” TO POVETKIN. HE ALSO SAID THAT HE WOULD BE GOING “STRAIGHT BACK IN THE GYM” WITH A VIEW TO A REMATCH BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.

ALEXANDER POVETKIN SAID AFTER THE MATCH – “I DON’T LISTEN TO DOUBTERS – IT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO BOX EVEN MORE, AND THANK YOU TO ALL THE FANS WHO BELIEVE IN ME”

EDDIE HEARN REACTS TO THE MATCH – “THIS IS THE DRAMA OF THE SPORT WE LOVE” AND WENT ON TO SAY “IT WAS A THRILLING KNOCKOUT ON A THRILLING NIGHT.  I’M PRETTY MUCH LOST FOR WORDS.”
