Fight Camp Signs Off With A Bang, What Next?

By Intu Boxing   - @intuboxing

It was all going so well for Dillian Whyte, cruise control against a very respectable opponent The Body Snatcher looked set to pile the pressure on to the WBC and messrs Fury and Joshua. After knocking Alexander Povetkin to the canvas twice, the heavyweight clash instantly etched itself into one for the ages, as the old dog showed why you can never write him off and dished out the most savage knockout this year, turning Whyte's night on it's head.

After the fight, Eddie Hearn revealed to Sky Sports that seconds after coming round, Whyte had repeatedly asked for a rematch to put right the situation - a request that Hearn also revealed can be delivered due to a clause in the contract.

Due to the circumstances of the year, with Covid-19 wreaking havoc across the sporing landscape, this was the biggest fight of the year, make no mistake. It was a fight Whyte didn't even have to take, so you have to hand immense credit to 'The Body Snatcher', but where does he go from here?

The rematch is the obvious solution. As with Joshua after the Ruiz humbling, and Deontay Wilder after being blown away by Tyson Fury, rematches have to be called in immediately from a fighters perspective. However, if that fight doesn't come off, for whatever reason, who else could Whyte find himself up against?

The division isn't short of respectable opponents to maintain one's ranking. Joseph Parker, Deontay Wilder (should Fury get his Joshua shot - or vice versa), Luis Ortiz or Oleksandr Usyk would all be names of interest to Whyte and would very much keep him in the picture.

For Povetkin, the choice is probably a simple one. At 41 years of age (nearly), one way or another his career is coming to an end. He'll be in no rush to fight again before a title shot (expect him to try and avoid a rematch at all costs), the belts have thus far alluded him in his quest for glory but there could be one final hurrah over the hill for the veteran.

To sign off, Fight Camp has delivered. Spectacurlaly.
