Former WBC first heavyweight champion Grigory Drozd discussed the comments of British heavyweight champion Dillian White, who expressed doubts about Alexander Povetkin’s illness.
We will remind, in early November, it became known that Povetkin was hospitalized after a positive test for COVID-19, as a result of which the rematch with White, originally scheduled for November 21, has now been postponed until next year.
“It’s very unpleasant,” Drozd said in an interview with RIA Novosti. – “Firstly, I think White should be glad that he had a pause, so that he was even better prepared. Secondly, if we talk about some kind of lie and untruth, then this is definitely not about Alexander Povetkin. an honest and decent guy who is always responsible for his words and actions. It seems to me that no one doubts this. Therefore, White’s words are simply ridiculous. He is just cunning and tries to hurt his opponent. I wish Sasha a speedy and complete recovery. “
