Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Povetkin sparked with a left uppercut and Whyte was out before he hit the canvas.

And Whyte was in command and looking comfortable.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Debatable whether Fury would have been caught like Whyte was. Credit where it is due Fury is very cagey.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
You can get heavies who can't bang. I'd sparred enough, likewise Fury wasn't off balance, was amazing what he did to get off the floor, but I strongly doubt he'd have done it off that shot.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Heavyweights aren’t weak punchers and being put on your arse off balance is quite different to being hit very hard and getting back up as Fury did.

Exceptional powers of recovery IMO

"That punch would have ko’d every boxer on the planet except Fury"

Fury's chin ain't great, he's been put on his arse by weak punchers. Was amazing what he did against Wilder getting back up and I was there to see it, but that would have put him out as well in my opinion.

From what I could tell Whyte has the turning circle of the QE2

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Povetkin's a beast, an aged slow beast perhaps but fuck White was out as soon as his body lifted inches from the floor.
How the bookies are trying to weasel their way out of paying for a KO by classing it as a technical count I'll never know and can't afford the kind of solicitors needed to address that kind of altered reality.

On the one hand you feel for Dillian, not for the fabled 1,000 days bollocks but he did work hard at his rebuild since his loss to Joshua, then again you look at all the PPVs he's rinsed out of Eddie Hearn fanboys despite never once holding a title and the slippery fashion he got off the drug test failure not even having to have his B sample addressed due to a technicality (The technicality being, A UKAD employee released details off his test failure after Matchroom got it hushed up, otherwise we wouldn't have even heard about it, at all).

Dillian's done alright out of this, not sure leaving Tibbs was an inspired move though we don't know the ins and outs why it happened.

Worth noting that during his time battling the WBC his promoter could have had him fight a number of occasions for a title had Dillian not been his backup plan B that Andy Ruiz demonstrated always needs to be considered when your house of cards is built so flimsily on hype and bullshit.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Just checked, it was 4 million he turned down. he claims he turned it down because Fury was going to get 15mil to fight AJ and he wanted the same. That's a fighters way of shitting out a fight you don't want. He isn't a 15mil contender and brought nothing to the table.

If he thought he could win, he'd have took the fight and the gone on to fight Fury for mega money.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
He's not Joshua's level but he has improved massively since their fight five years ago.

He was looking very good value until that moment.

Povetkin was always going to be a risk.

He will bounce back.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Dont think anyone has said Whyte is top level. He is dangerous and entertaining though. I can't see that Whyte would turn down that sort of money and a shot without there being something ridiculous in there, first I've heard of it. Joshua is boring and a robot and I fully hope Fury beats the piss out of him when Joshua finally has to fight him. The cunt.

Council Scum 12:08 Mon Aug 24
Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
" At least it gives Joshua another excuse to duck fighting him"

Whyte turned down £3mil (by far his biggest ever payday) to fight him last year. Gave every excuse in the book to dodge it.

I like Whyte, but his not getting a shot at the title for 1,000 days, has given far to many people who know shit about boxing, the wrong impression he's top level, he's not, nor ever will be.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Whyte patently isn’t at the level of Fury and Joshua.

He’s always been exposed to the upper cut. He goes all out, but has big gaps.

He’s got to learn to keep it tighter. Joshua actually keeps it quite tight. Uses his reach well. Joshua is a good learner.

Got 5/4 on over 1.5 knockouts.

Easy money.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Vexed, look it up, he says it himself he didn’t like the rematch clause in there.

Ruiz took it and won.

But yeah doesn’t suit your AJ agenda so carry on.

Yeah I can see Whyte turning down a huge fight in New York. Sounds really likely that.

Briano 9:59 Sun Aug 23
Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
I didn't think Povetkin at 41 could do this but a peach of a punch and fair play to a great technical fighter that has won everything at amateur.

The old adage ..anything can happen when two heavyweights get in the ring

South Woodhammer 9:47 Sun Aug 23
Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
It leaves Fury free to take on Joshua in a double header without having to fight Whyte first ...who he would undoubtedly beat. But if Dillian can beat Povetkin in the rematch a fight with Wilder might be a bit lively .... a lot of people would pay to watch that one.

Re: Dillon Whyte, went out like a light
Dodged him ever since??

He offered Whyte the fight in New York but Whyte didn’t want the rematch clause in there.

Yes. What does that have to do with the Joshuabot dodging him ever since? Or are you trying to be a clever cunt?
