Dillian Whyte on Alexander Povetkin
‘I was a fighter a long time before I was a boxer. I’ve been knocking people out for a long time. I carry a lot of power in both hands. Povetkin is a very cagey guy and an experienced guy, a very patient guy. He’s a tough guy as well.”
“Last time I didn’t land properly and he went down” Whyte stated. Â£But he showed resilience by getting up and then he stopped me. This time when I hit him he’ll stay down.Â I’m a very adaptable kind of guy, I’ll do what I need to do to get the win. I don’t care if I’ve got to rough a guy up or outbox them.”
Whyte then re-iterated how this is the biggest fight of his pro career. “I’ll do whatever it takes for me to win. It’s the biggest fight of my career.Â I’m coming off a loss to the guy.Â The good thing is this is Heavyweight boxing. One fight changes everything.”
