Whyte vs. Povetkin Prediction
Heavyweight boxing returns at the elite level on August 22 2020 when Dillian Whyte puts his WBC interim title on the line against Russian threat Alexander Povetkin.
“The Villain” enters this bout as a dominant -358 (1.28) favorite with Borgata to get the better of Povetkin having won his last 11 straight fights, a streak dating back to December 2015.
Whyte vs. Povetkin Betting Preview & Odds
Whyte (27-1) boasts a pristine record aside from that seventh-round stoppage defeat to Anthony Joshua. That’s a result Povetkin—a +275 underdog at Borgata Sports—also has under his belt after losing to Joshua in September 2018; Wladimir Klitschko is the only other fighter to have defeated 40-year-old “Sasha.”
Povetkin (35-2-1) boasts the edge in experience over Whyte, but his December 2019 draw against Michael Hunter showed holes to his game that his next opponent is likely to exploit. Whyte has noticeably evolved his performance in recent years and is in a prime state to challenge for a world championship, while there’s a sense Povetkin is past his sell-by date.
The extra motivation of a genuine shot at the WBC crown should boost Whyte, who has the advantages over Povetkin needed to hand the Russian a third career loss.
