Dillian Whyte on Alexander Povetkin
“He wasted time, letting me get ready for two fights, and then cancelled them at the last minute” Whyte continued. “Of course I’m going to be annoyed. I’m not going to be sat there and laughing. I had a great camp. I’m going to be pissed off and annoyed.’
In their August 2020 fight, Whyte appeared to be in control, after dropping Povetkin twice in the fourth round. Dillian Whyte would end up tasting defeat when Povetkin hit him with a brutal uppercut in the fifth.
