Undisputed Lightweight World Champion Katie Taylor goes through her paces in the ring at the bubble gym ahead of her epic rematch with Belgium’s Delfine Persoon.Alexander Povetkin has been a top-10 heavyweight for the past decade.
He’s 40 years old now, but he’s shown that he still has legitimate skills to be in the position to potentially spring an upset vs. Dillian Whyte on Saturday. Though Povetkin has only won once in his last three bouts and though he fell short during his two world title challenges, he still has power and he still has the technical acumen that brought him the Olympic gold medal 16 years ago.
But Whyte seemingly is the better fighter now. And he has plenty of motivation to continue his 11-fight winning streak. He’s been a mandatory No. 1 challenger for one of the sanctioning bodies for nearly three years now, and he’s tired of waiting to face Deontay Wilder (when he was the belt-holder) and Tyson Fury (who holds that trinket now).
Whyte, though, isn’t always in the best shape, and he’s been caught by punches and knocked down before. Povetkin has the power to knock him out if Whyte isn’t ready for him.But Whyte thinks he’ll score the win and then eventually get his shot vs. Fury for the title. “I want to fight the best,” he said. “Hopefully he’ll be a man of his word and won’t be a coward.”
