After the interim WBC heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin knocked out Dillian White in the fifth round last August, many fans began to question the Briton’s prospects for a rematch with the Russian Knight.
Despite White’s painful defeat, former heavyweight world champion Joseph Parker believes that Dillian will still be the favorite in the rematch with Povetkin.
“Many continue to focus on the blow with which Povetkin caught White. But before Alexander delivered this blow, White controlled the course of the fight and dominated. So in the rematch I probably lean towards White. But this is boxing, and even heavyweight so it’s hard to say, “Joseph Parker told YouTube channel PepTalkUK.
We will remind, Parker also spoke about the striking power of Alexander Usik in the heavyweight division.
