Dillian Whyte on Joshua v Povetkin, Sequel With Chisora, And His Take on Jarrell Miller

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte chatted with TALKBOX at the Friday Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin weigh in, in London, the day before the faceoff at Wembley.
Whyte knows what he’s talking about with AJ, having been in with the massive Brit—he lost via stoppage in 2015.
 “I think Povetkin’s coming in just a little light,” he said, and noted he thinks Povetkin needs to “out rough” AJ.
“Povetkin is not a solid one punch KO artist,” so maybe being heavier would have helped the Russian, he stated.
Whyte (24-1; age 30) also talked his next; he said he wasn’t nervous running into Dereck Chisora, who was at the weigh in, and asking Eddie Hearn to get on the same page, and do some business. Whyte has dealt with Chisora before, stopping out the vet in 2016.
Whye mentioned Dominic Breazeale as a possible next and also had some choice words for Brooklyn’s Jarrell Miller.
