BOXING PREVIEW: Top quality Heavyweight boxing hits Gibraltar on Saturday night as Dillian Whyte gets his chance for revenge against Alexander Povetkin.

It’s fair to say that Whyte’s world came crashing down with Povetkin landed that dramatic KO last summer. The boxing landscape has really changed since – Whyte has obviously been held up with his challenge for a heavyweight title as he lost his position in the WBO and now Joshua and Fury have signed a contract for two fights in 2021.

That leaves Whyte in no man’s land a little, but there’s no getting away from the fact that he needs to win on Saturday night. A loss would be a huge setback and leave him in all sorts of trouble compared to where he wants to be. The likely path for Whyte now is win here, fight again this year against someone solid and position himself to challenge the winner of Joshua and Fury for (possibly) all the belts. If you were Whyte, that would have to be the goal. However as we saw in the first fight between these two, you can’t get too ahead of yourself in heavyweight boxing!

We would have had in-running carnage in the first fight on BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE, with Whyte knocking down Povetkin and generally bossing the fight before Povetkin landed a hail mary of a punch that seen Whyte laid out in the ring. There has been a couple of hold ups to the rematch with British boxing being suspended for a while due to Covid19 and indeed Povetkin getting Covid19 himself. Although Whyte caught a massive punch, he was actually fine once he recovered – he didn’t have a hard fight, just took a big punch.

He will know what kind of power Povetkin has now, and he will be a lot more careful going into this fight. It could be a point win for Whyte, and that’s trading around 4.0 but Whyte looked in full control of the first fight and he should be able to outclass Povetkin. Bar another Povetkin haymaker it’s hard to see Whyte losing the fight, and the decide comes down to KO or points win.

Given these two like a ding dong fight, we should see the punches flying at some point. You would expect a cagey start, perhaps a dull first three or four rounds but once we see a spark we should get an excellent fight with a lot of action. Whyte looks worth backing at 1.73 for a KO or TKO, as it’s hard to see the fight going the distance. Povetkin will have a lot of backers at 3.75 to win the fight but Whyte should get the job done this time around in what should be another excellent fight.

BETDAQ Best Bet:
Dillian Whyte KO or TKO at 1.73 with BETDAQ BETTING EXCHANGE
