The interim WBC heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin said that the initiative to hold an immediate rematch with Dillian White came from the British team. According to the Russian boxer, he is ready to once again enter the ring with White on November 21. At the same time, Povetkin does not expect that defeat by a brutal knockout in the first fight will somehow weaken his opponent.
“The rematch is an initiative of White and his team. In principle, I’m ready to box. What can I say? If I’m ready, that’s good. We’ll box again. We signed a rematch contract right before the fight.”
I don’t think anything, the fight will show. What to count? Maybe this time he will start fussing, hitting somehow. Let’s see “, – said Alexander Povetkin during the Zoom conference of the Russian Boxing Federation.
We will remind, Povetkin also said that in a rematch with White will get into a fight.
