FIGHT CAMP Week 4 Main Event: Dillian Whyte (UK) vs Alexander Povetkin (Russia)

The UFC Fight Night Main Event features the bantamweight clash between former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Pedro Munhoz. This bout has been in the making for a while with the schedule cancelling three times this year alone.

Whyte (27-1-0)

Ever since his loss against Anthony Joshua, Dillian has grabbed win after win. WBC ranked number one for over 1000 days already, Whyte has beat back-to-back top 10 contenders. The latest three bouts include Joseph Parker, Dereck Chisora, and Oscar Rivas. Last week, the WBC announced that Dillian is the mandatory challenger for the fight between winner of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.

Once again the heavyweight will put everything on the line to prove to the British public that it is in his destiny to win a title. The 32-year-old Jamaican born fighter, who fights out of Brixton, London, is a 1/4* favourite to get a win over Povetkin and earn that title shot with Mark Jarvis.

Povetkin (35-2-1)

Alexander first became a star when we won the Olympic Gold medal in the Superheavyweight Division in the 2004 Olympics in Athens. The 40-year-old may not be in his prime anymore, but has gathered a lot of experience since he turned professional in 2005 and still believes he has enough left in the tank to win on Saturday and once again return to championship glory.

As the seventh best heavyweight according to the rankings by the Ring Magazine, Povetkin has boxed in the UK before against the unified heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua back in September 2018. The Russian is priced as high as 7/2* to halt the momentum of Whyte on his way to a title shot with Mark Jarvis.

FIGHT CAMP Co-Main Event: Katie Taylor (Ireland) vs Delfine Persoon (Belgium)

The two fighters go once again head-to-head for the undisputed female lightweight championship of the world (WBA, WBO, IBF, WBC, The Ring, Lineal). They had all the belts last year in June at Madison Square Garden on the undercard of Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz I.

The fight ended in controversy as Katie won by majority decision, but many believe the fight should have ended in favour for Delfine or at least a draw. Will it be repeat or revenge? KT is a 3/10* favourite against Persoon, who is a 10/3* underdog to defeat the undefeated fighter from Bray.

Fight Camp Week 4 Card

Alen Babic (3-0) vs Shawndell Winters (13-3-9)

Jack Cullen (18-2) vs Zak Chelli (7-1)

Luther Clay (13-1) vs Chris Kongo (11-0)

Katie Taylor (15-0) vs Delfine Persoon (46-2)

Dillian Whyte (21-1) vs Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1)

Giulio’s Fight Camp Week 4 Betting Tips

Alen Babic will win by TKO.

I believe Katie can win if it goes the distance, but if she gets caught with a right hand, it could end badly for the current champion.

I believe the fight between Whyte and Povetkin will be a total war, but I think Whyte will win by knockout in the last 3 rounds. Povetkin will come in strong in the first 3-4 rounds, but will gas out in the later rounds which will cause further errors and get caught in the body or head by The Body Snatcher.
