The Body Snatcher has toppled Joseph Parker, Dereck Chisora and Oscar Rivas since his last professional defeat in 2015 – to Anthony Joshua.

The bout – initially scheduled for May 2 in Manchester – was first pushed back to July 4, and has now been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus crisis.
With no current timescale for a return to boxing in Britain, Dean believes the fight location may need to be moved, touting America as a possibility with president Donald Trump aiming to reduce lockdown measures in certain states.
Whyte has not fought since a decision victory against Mariusz Wach in December 2019 on Anthony Joshua’s undercard as he avenged his loss against Andy Ruiz Jr, an event Povetkin was also involved in.
Speaking on CasinoLounge.co.uk, Dean said: “He might have to go abroad because the British Boxing Board might not allow it. “In America, Trump is already saying that some states are going to be open earlier than others, so potentially it may go over there.

Additional contests are expected to be added to the card
As far as the undercard for Dillian vs. Povetkin goes, Bakole vs. Kuzmin is a decent quality match-up, but far from great. The rest of the fights are ho-hum and hardly worth pay-per-view in Brun’s opinion.
Katie Taylor would be ok to watch if she were facing someone good like Claressa’ T-Rex’ Shields (10-0, 9 KOs), but that’s not going to happen. Shields is too good, and Hearn wouldn’t let Taylor anywhere near her.
Having seen Taylor matched against a lot of weak opposition during her career, it’s about time Hearn put her in with someone with talent like Claressa Shields. Is that too much to ask of Hearn to match Taylor tough for once?
What TV Channel will the full fights be on?

- Deontay Wilder
- Oleksandr Usyk
- Luis Ortiz
- Filip Hrgovic
- Daniel Dubois
- Joe Joyce
- Andy Ruiz Jr
These are all heavyweights that would likely beat Whyte, and make him look bad in the process. Fans would be a lot more willing to watch Whyte fight on pay-per-view if he were facing those types of contenders.

Povetkin vs Whyte fight prediction
Both men have been in wars over the years and each hold a knockout highlight reel that is as good as anyone else’s at the top of the division.
At 40 years of age, there is a question however of how many big performances Povetkin has left in the tank, pushed all the way by Hunter last time out.
It’s a tough fight to call given both men have the power to end the fight at any stage – we give it to Whyte via TKO in the late rounds.
