Dereck Chisora feels bad for Dillian Whyte after watching him lose to Alexander Povetkin last August. Chisora says Whyte had worked so hard as a professional, building himself slowly to get to the level he was at after years. The WBC never gave Dillian his shot at the title, even though he’d been mandatory for over a year. Fans can aslo enjoy to Watch Dillian Whyte Fight Live Stream Online.
Dereck feels that with all the fights that Whyte was taking while waiting for his title shot, sooner or later, he was going to get knocked out. He was taking a lot of hard fights while waiting to challenge for the WBC title against Tyson Fury, but it came unraveled for him against Povetkin on August 22 at the Matchroom Boxing Fight Camp.
Chisora thinks that if Whyte had fought in front of a live crowd, he would have won the fight. He’d have pushed hard from the start if he’d fought in front of many people, which would have worked in his favor against Povetkin. Instead, Whyte fought Povetkin, 40, behind closed doors, and was knocked out cold in the fifth round.
Also, Chisora points out that Whyte had replaced his longtime trainer Mark Tibbs, and he feels that factored into his loss. It’s unclear how Whyte having Tibbs in his corner would have helped him take the powerful left uppercut from Povetkin in round 5 that knocked him out cold.
