Dillian White carried out his threats and defeated Alexander Povetkin in their second battle. The Briton won by knockout in the fourth round of the match, which took place in Gibraltar.
The veteran was totally depersonalized by the vengeful White, who struck very hard in each of the four rounds, and it was a miracle Povetkin stayed on his feet for so long.
He played with fire throughout the match, but his waiting tactic failed this time. White showed very good boxing and refuted the critics who wrote him off from the big game.

The Briton behaved like a gentleman and went to help his opponent after the referee announced the end of the match. Dillian rushed to the Russian corner with a chair in his hand and hurried to encourage his legendary opponent.
So he regained the WBC intermediate belt in the heavyweight division and continues to wait for his chance for the world title.
The loss to Povetkin was the third in his long career in 40 games. Until now, he was second only to Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua.
Dillian White already has an asset of 28 wins and two losses, and in addition to the defeat by Povetkin in August, the Briton also lost to Anthony Joshua.
