The knockout performed by Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin, which he made in a fight with Briton Dillian Whyte, was recognized as the best in the past 2020 by the World Boxing Council (WBC). Earlier this knockout was recognized as the best by the sports portal BoxingScene.
Recall that the fight between Povetkin and Whyte took place in August last year. The beginning of the fight was unfortunate for the Russian: 41-year-old Povetkin was even knocked down twice. However, at the beginning of the fifth round, “Russian Vityaz” managed to pull together and effectively knock out the opponent with a lightning uppercut, which brought Alexander the interim WBC title.
