    Whyte vs povetkin 2nd May. No need for random drug tests in this one; the fight will get cancelled

    Should be a good fight but I got Whyte late tko. Prime povetkin knocks Whyte out but hes too much on the slide

    It will be a good fight. I think it will either be a late TKO or Whyte decision. Personally I am looking forward to Usyk vs Chisora more. It is a shame Sky are running 2 separate PPV events rather than putting them on the same card though.

    yeah its bollocks. I may wait for the undercards before I decide if I buy either.

    I love delboy and Usyk but im just not excited about it. I think its a good fight for Usyk as Delboy is a proper heavie. I don't think it will be a good fight though, I think chisora will struggle to land on him
    Povetkin vs whyte is the better fight

    It will be interesting to see how Whyte reacts early because Povetkin is dangerous early. After the 5th, it's Whyte's to lose.

    Have you seen his interview? He's got another KO punch in his arsenal. He always comes out with this crap :laugh:

    lol yeah I saw the story. What is this ‘new’ ko punch? I don’t see him throwing many uppercuts so perhaps he just learned the technique, or maybe a screw shot or superman punch?

    Just watched last part of the Fury documentary. Great stuff actually. I've developed quite a respect for Tyson Fury, he really is a complicated character, but I see a good man there who lives for his wife and kids. I can't warm to his father though. He is rightly proud of his son, but I don't see a proper decent bloke there, he just makes me uneasy watching him. I may be misjudging him, but I don't see much humility in the man.....just anger and aggression.

    The guy is a clown and I just can't stand him.

    Maybe it's a Roundhouse?

    Spinning back fist?

    Im not a fan either though I do respect him as one of the only guys in the division willing to take a chance. Hes also a cheat which people seem to give him a pass for? Its gonna be a good fight though.
    Been watching some povetkin fights recently and if whyte isn't on it from the start he could get knocked out early. If it gets past the 6 then Id definitely favour dillian. He likes his left hook but that is also povetkins favoured punch, and as they say; you shouldn't hook with a hooker. maybe sensible to mix it up

    Tiger Uppercut?

    Did his B sample test positive too? I mean the long silence after the news broke was deafening and you got the feeling something didn't add up. Hearn working behind the scenes to pay someone off

    It will be decent. The thing is as well is, Whyte tires late too. Could be a case of who tires first and lands the killer blow.

    I thought Povetkin looked dreadful in his last two fights. Think his age is catching up with him now and Whyte will ko him. Also, I think Povetkins best punch is his overhand right but Whyte was decent at stopping Chisora land that too much in both fights.

    Whyte has been cleared of any wrong doing by UKAD, so I'd be extremely surprised if they are lying. Think Johnny is referring to his previous ban.

    oh he’s on the slide but he also fought a very good fighter last time round. I thought he won, but tipped hunter to beat him. That was a decent performance. Michael hunter is a top 10 HW, no doubt. And Whyte looked far worse in his last outing against a much lesser opponent

    I agree he’s got a very sneaky right hand. He throws both very well, the left hook coming off the right hand much of the time. I still think Whyte wins but he’s in for a fckin fight

    Yeah Whyte did look shit tbf but I honestly think the whole drug test situation got to him big time and he struggled to motivate himself for the fight. Yeah agree, it will be a tough fight. Think Povetkin will gas though.

    @Jonny Ninja Did you see the head to head between Usyk and Chisora? They had a selfie after it [​IMG]
