Whyte won the grappling match, Parker won the boxing match.

If you make the argument that Whyte should have lost a point or 2, you could argue Parker won this legitimately, I don't know if I'd have taken any points, but the headbutt knock down effected the outcome, it would have been draw if the referee hadn't mistakenly deemed it a knock down.

What are your thoughts on Povetkin vs Whyte II?

Yeah, round 2 was massive, without that headbutt counting as a KD Parker may have taken that round 10-9. I would have taken at least a point off Whyte for continually holding down Parker's head and uppercutting him, once or twice is okay and just needs a warning but he was holding and hitting over and over again. I felt Parker was hard done by in that respect, being the B-side away fighter he didn't get any favours.

Whyte is rightfully the betting favourite again for the rematch imo, he was doing well until the KO. The main concern for him is his defence, he was caught by an uppercut vs Rivas too in a fight that he otherwise was in full control of.

Admittedly I'm much more of a fan of Povetkin than I am of Whyte but I think Whyte gets the KO this time, Povetkin has been hurt by multiple opponents in the past and he's only getting older. Wouldn't be shocked at all if Povetkin did the repeat though, I wonder what would be next for Whyte if he took 2 back to back losses.

I don't see how he couldn't have taken it, it didn't seem much closer to me than the first round. I'd need to watch it again to be sure about the specifics, but I don't remember a single malicious foul or anything he did relentlessly, not saying that in itself means he shouldn't have had points deducted, but knowing how to get away with fighting dirty is a skill, and Whyte did a good job of that.

I agree he's the rightful favourite even though he lost and was doing great until the KO. I think awareness is key, he can't be in a position to be set up has to keep changing direction, keep throwing the jab. I expect Whyte to be better prepared for the uppercut this time, Povetkin will need to find something else, but he's capable of doing that, and another danger for Whyte is throwing his jab without purpose, being lazy or slow with it, letting Whyte slip inside, and if he's slow to bring his left hand back to his chin, he gives Povetkin an opening for the over hand right.

I think it's make or break for him now, he's young, but not so young he has time to rebuild from 2 losses, and he's taken a lot of damage during his learning process, doesn't live the life.

Parker won this headbutt or not. In a rematch Parker skelps him.

Totally agree. If a rematch took place in a neutral location with a ref that didn't let Whyte get away with hitting and holding and dirty tricks all fight, Parker would get the KO or at least win a clear decision imo.

The extra weight and headbutt didn't help his stamina. I would go for a Parker late stoppage. Whyte is a good top 10 fighter but he's nothing more than that. The referee was Ian John Lewis so it's only right Whyte got away with everything.
