Alexander Povetkin knocks out Dillian Whyte in a straight forward contest

Share This



Dillian Whyte was knocked out cold by Alexander Povetkin, with the Russian viciously halting his world title ambitions on Saturday.

Whyte had completely controlled the fight, flooring floored his opponent twice, but was smashed by a left uppercut in the fifth round that ended his hopes in a flash.
The 32-year-old would have had a mandatory challenge of Tyson Fury's WBC heavyweight championship finally enforced after a 1000-day wait with a win at Fight Camp, but became the victim of a stunning come-from-behind victory.


The fourth round was where Whyte completely took over, twice knocking Povetkin down. The first came from a left hook to the temple, the second with a crunching left uppercut.
But the fight ended suddenly in the fifth when Povetkin crashed home a colossal uppercut - Whyte fell flat on his back and the referee instantly called a halt to the fight.

Povetkin took home the WBC interim title, and its Diamond belt, and could inherit a future chance at Fury's world championship that had seemed destined for Whyte although a rematch clause will first be exercised.
