What Does Alexander Povetkin Want To Do After Dillian Whyte Rematch?
Alexander Povetkin has big plans if he can defeat Dillian Whyte a second time.
Povetkin stunned the boxing world with his fifth-round TKO victory over Whyte back on August 22. With the win, Povetkin became the interim WBC Heavyweight Champion. Whyte had a mandatory title shot against Fury but that blew up in smoke with the loss.
“We will work in this direction [fighting WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury]. The fight for the world title is a big event in the career of any fighter, and with every reason for this, of course, we will seek a mandatory defense from the WBC.”
Ryabinsky went on to say that the location doesn’t matter as long as Povetkin is able to cash in with a bout against the winner of Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III.
“Why not? This is one of the possible locations. If such a fight takes place, it will really become an event in the boxing world, no matter where it takes place: in Russia or in any other country in the world.”
