It won’t be wrong to say that Dillain Whyte doesn’t get the attention he deserves. Whyte is a former interim WBC Champion of the world. Scheduled to fight Tyson Fury for the WBC Championship at one point, and Deontay Wilder on several occasions, Dillian Whyte has failed to get the matches that he has earned through his impeccable record of 22 wins and just 2 losses inside the ring.

Despite the mandatory title opportunity against Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte decided to remain active and took on boxing veteran and one of the best heavyweight boxers in the form of Alexander Povetkin. After having to sit outside for over a year due to the potential Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder trilogy, Whyte risked his interim strap against Povetkin. Unfortunately for Dillian Whyte fans, the boxing Champion would lose via KO in an absolute shocker. After dropping Povetkin twice, Povetkin landed a brutal uppercut in the fifth round. Alexander Povetkin shocked the world at 41 years of age with a KO win over a very dangerous striker in the form of Dillian Whyte.
“This is the story of my life. It’s always one set back. This is another thing that I just have to overcome, get it done, and just prove… Just show them that, ‘Listen, you can never write me off. You can never underestimate me. You can say whatever you want about me, feel whatever you feel about me, but you can never ever write me off,’ “ Whyte said.
