British heavyweight Dillian Whyte believes he doesn’t need to make a lot of adjustments for his upcoming rematch with Russia’s Alexander Povetkin.
The pair will square off again on November 21, almost two months after the Russian veteran KO’d Whyte in their London clash.
Whyte got rocked in the fifth by a brutal left uppercut to the ching that immediately sent him to another universe. Still, prior to the fifth, the 32-year-old Brit managed to knock down Povetkin twice.
A lot of people and experts are still saying that Whyte made a mistake by choosing an immediate rematch just two months after the first fight, but according to “The Body Snatcher” he knows what he needs to change and what must be done in order to return the favor.
“I’ve got to make some minor adjustments,” said Whyte to DAZN. “There was nothing wrong with what I did. I need to make some minor adjustments and stay switched on a bit more. I can go after him early or box him and then pick it up. I’ve got a lot of options. I feel great,” added Dillian.
“His options are much more limited than my options, even though I lost,” said Whyte. “You might think I’m crazy saying this, but that’s how I feel anyway. No, there’s not going to be any changes. My team stays the same.
“I was boxing one of the best I’ve boxed in a long time early doors defensively. And I was picking the jab. I was out-jabbing an Olympian, someone that had over 200 amateur fights. I was out-jabbing him, and I was outboxing him.
