Povetkin still ‘upset’ after defeat to Dillian Whyte – Promoter

Russian boxer, Alexander Povetkin is said to be left ‘upset’ after he was knocked out by Dillian Whyte last week.

Promoter Andrey Ryabinskiy added that Povetkin who was stopped in the fourth round as Whyte avenged last summer’s shock defeat in their ‘Rumble On The Rock’ rematch in Gibraltar is yet to make a decision on his retirement.

He had hoped to stay on course for another world heavyweight title fight, having challenged Anthony Joshua unsuccessfully in 2018.

“Yes, we’ve talked right after the fight,” Ryabinskiy told Sky Sports.

“Sasha, of course, is upset that he couldn’t beat Dillian.

“But it’s sport, you need to be prepared for any outcome.”
