Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin Preview And Betting Tips

There was a lot of debate surrounding the ‘how’s’ and ‘when’s’ of the return of boxing, though Matchroom’s announcement of this bout provided some much-needed clarity, and what a fight we have in store for the big return. The Manchester Arena was the original venue for the fight, however due to Covid restrictions the fight goes ahead on Saturday night in the stunning surroundings of Matchroom Boxing’s headquarters in Brentwood. Tipsters Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the much-anticipated fight.

Unbeaten Streak

Dillian Whyte is on an impressive 11-match winning streak since his defeat to Anthony Joshua back in 2015. Whyte had previously beaten the World Champion in amateur boxing, though Joshua had come on leaps and bounds to dish out Whyte’s one and only professional defeat to date.

Whyte did manage to rock Joshua in that bout though and is now a much more accomplished and complete fighter than he was five years ago, so it’s no doubt he heads into this one as heavy favourite.

Povetkin Plenty Of Experience

Russian Alexander Povetkin definitely has the experience on his opponent and at 40 years of age, has an impressive 35-2-1 record, with his only defeats coming to Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, so he knows a thing or two about big fights.

The main argument against Povetkin is that he’s looking past his best. He’s gone 1-1-1 from his last three fights and despite bouncing back from his defat to Joshua with a unanimous decision victory over Hughie Fury, he struggled to a draw against Michael Hunter after being shook early doors, and we can’t see Whyte being as forgiving if he manages to wobble the Russian.




Dillian Whyte Win By Decision Or Technical Decision

At these respective stages of their careers, and with Whyte knowing full well that victory here would likely leave him as the mandatory challenger for either Joshua or Tyson Fury’s belts, which should serve as extra motivation, we can only see this going in the direction of the Brit.

The price for the Whyte victory is unsurprisingly short however, and there’s much more value to be had in the method of victory.

White has a 64.3% KO rate, though only has three from his last 10 bouts. He’s not exactly a small puncher, and has a slight reach advantage on his opponent in this one, though Povetkin showed he can come back from an early wobble, and although we can’t see the Russian winning, his experience should help him manage this fight through to the end, and we’ll plump for a points victory for White in Brentwood.

Dillian Whyte Win By Decision Or Technical Decision At 6/4
