Potetkin suspects pressure getting to Whyte

Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs) suspects that the “pressure” of the moment is beginning to eat away at Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs), resulting in Dillian Whyte’s sudden move to switch out his long-time trainer Mark Tibbs last week.

Whyte has everything to lose next month when he faces the 40-year-old Povetkin on 22nd August 2020 on Sky Box Office at the Matchroom Fight Camp, Brentwood.

A loss for Whyte would ruin his dreams of challenging for the WBC title in 2021 against Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder. If Povetkin beats Whyte, it’ll be he that challenges for the WBC belt next year. As a consequence, all that hard work that Whyte put in over the last five years will have been wasted.

“Anything can happen in the camp,” Povetkin said to Skysports in talking about Whyte’s impulse to part ways with Tibbs. “Maybe there is pressure on him. Every fight has pressure.”
Whyte, 32, didn’t have to take this fight against Povetkin. After all, Dillian is already the WBC mandatory, and he could have made a soft match-up against David Allen. Some think that Dillian is foolhardy by putting his WBC mandatory status on the line against former WBA champion Povetkin.
