The editor-in-chief of The Ring, Doug Fisher, speaking about the rematch of heavyweights Alexander Povetkin and Dillian White last weekend, once again emphasized the disappointing state of the division.
“People say Dillian White is a limited fighter with good jab and power. They are probably right, but you know what? That’s enough to make it one of the top five heavyweights in the world today. I don’t think you’ll name at least five guys who would have been tested in battles better than White.
Even his potential duel with Wilder (which we’ll never see) is controversial. Wilder is a great athlete, gifted with both speed and strength, but he has a shitty “base”. Plus, no one knows now what condition he is in, ”Fischer wrote in a weekly column.
