(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Ahead of their much anticipated rematch in Gibraltar On Saturday, Alexander Povetkin has slammed Dillian Whyte’s Covid conspiracy theory.
Whyte has previously accused the Russian of inventing the bouts of coronavirus that twice led to postponements of their second fight in November and January, an allegation Povetkin, whose team has claimed he was hospitalised with the virus, has dismissed.
The former world champion, who twice got off the canvas before knocking out Whyte in Eddie Hearn’s back garden in August, said: ‘With regards to Dillian Whyte, he can think and say whatever he wants.
‘We have the paperwork, we have documents with the different analysis and results. I can send these to Matchroom. This is not for discussion.
‘I don’t feel any effects of having coronavirus now. I’ve trained well and my training camp has been good.’
The winner of the showdown will be put on a collision course with Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury.
