A wonderful morning to you all as we check out the results of the matches played yesterday Saturday August 22, 2020
Starting with Boxing…
Alexander Povetkin knocked out Dillian Whyte in the fifth round of the match yesterday behind closed doors as Povetkin took home the WBC interim title and it’s Diamond belt.
Despite Whyte flooring the Russian twice in the match, Povetkin still found a way to stop his world title ambition with a left uppercut that rendered Whyte flat inside the box before the referee immediately put an end to the match. Whyte would have gone on to fight against Tyson Fury in a mandatory challenge for the WBC heavyweight championship but with this loss, Povetkin could be the one to benefit from that even though they would first exercise a rematch clause.
This means that the unification fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury can now proceed.
