Alexander Povetkin vs Dillian Whyte 2 Predictions & Tips


There is evidence that Dillian Whyte can get the better of Alexander Povetkin.

He was in control of the first fight and dropped the Russian twice in the fourth round before an uppercut ended his night.

If he can stay out of danger I believe that Whyte can outwork Povetkin over the course of 12 rounds to get the nod from the judges.

  • Dillian Whyte dropped Alexander Povetkin twice in the fourth round in the first meeting
  • Whyte was clearly leading on the scorecards when he was knocked out
  • Three of Dillian Whyte’s last four victories have come via judges’ decision
  • Povetkin may have won last time out, but he is 2-1-1 in his last four fights
  • Povetkin is 41 years old and recently suffered from a respiratory illness

Alexander Povetkin Form


Just when you think Povetkin is done he records a victory that once again propels him back into the world heavyweight title picture.

Having rebounded from a knockout loss to Anthony Joshua with a 12-round decision win over Hughie Fury, the 41-year-old Russian’s career obituary was being written when he went to a split-decision draw with Michael Hunter.

That stunning knockout of Whyte last year has reignited his career, but was it one last ‘hurrah’ from the former world heavyweight champion? 

Dillian Whyte Form


Dillian Whyte had very little to gain and everything to lose when he stepped into the ring with Alexander Povetkin last year.

While the result was surprising, there was almost an air of inevitability that one of these ‘filler’ fights would come back to haunt ‘The Body Snatcher’ while he waited for a world title shot.

A brutal uppercut in the fifth turned that fear into a reality.

Prior to that knockout loss to Povetkin there were few heavyweight fighters on the planet that could boast the form that Whyte was in.

Whyte had reeled off 11 consecutive victories in response to the first loss of his career, against Anthony Joshua, and he had claimed some notable scalps along the way.

The most notable result was besting former world champion Joseph Parker over 12 rounds.

He also saw off the challenge of one of the most avoided men in the heavyweight division, Oscar Rivas, but none of that was enough to finally land him a crack at the men sitting atop the heavyweight division.

He was already the number one contender when he took on Parker and Rivas so in many respects they were needless risks, but Whyte took them and avoided disaster.

Povetkin then proved to be one risk too many for ‘The Body Snatcher’ and now he faces a ‘must-win’ outing on March 27.
