The left uppercut with which Alexander Povetkin applied a knockout to Dillian whyte will go down in history as one of the great disconnects in one fell swoop.
Last August 22, Alexander Povetkin knocked out Dillian whyte in the fifth round of a fight he had lost. And is that the Russian had gone to the canvas twice in the previous round.
It was a maneuver that Povetkin he had measure, and that he had even trained. The idea was to counterattack Whyte, manage to put his left hand through that hole and find the tip of the chin of Whyte.
In that fifth round, Dillian Whyte fell like a board, dry on the canvas and with that knockout a dramatic somersault was consummated in favor of Povetkin.
One good hit changes everything. AND Alexander Povetkin had that hit.
In this video, that the channel Slow Time Boxing uploaded to his account Youtube, you can enjoy in super slow motion the violent uppercut of Povetkin, the reaction of Whyte to the blow trying to assimilate it, and the way his face shows the disconnection until he falls.
Likewise, the reaction of Povetkin. To stay totally still, he knew he had hit a blow and that Whyte was about to fall.
