Who Wins Povetkin -Vs- Whyte 2?


Last Friday Telemundo detailed results
When WBO Latino lightweight champion Alex "El Pollo" de Jesus (13-0, 9 KO's) failed to come close to making the weight for his defense against Humberto Tapia, he was stripped of the title and Vineland, New Jersey's Jose Reyes was brought in to face Tapia for the vacant title.

Reyes, who, in his last fight, had lost to Cristobal Cruz for the WBC Latino and WBA Fedecentro super featherweight titles, took full advantage of this opportunity.
