WBC interim heavyweight champ Dillian Whyte takes on dangerous challenger Alexander Povetkin on Saturday in Brentwood, England, with the card starting at noon ET. Whyte is a -380 favorite at William Hill, with Povetkin getting +280. You can bet on whether the fight goes all 12 rounds (Yes -110, No -125), among many other wagering options.

Before you bet, you NEED to see what Peter Kahn has to say. A 2019 Boxing Writers Association of America Cus D'Amato Manager of the Year nominee, Kahn has his finger on the pulse of what's going on inside and outside the ring. Kahn manages nearly 10 percent of Top Rank's fighters, and he can be seen and heard weekly as co-host of "The Fight Guys" show on FITE TV.

Kahn is uncanny when it comes to picking fights. He is an astounding 18-0 on SportsLine boxing picks since the hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, including a 2-0 sweep last Saturday.

No one knows the heavyweight division better. Last year, Kahn called Deontay Wilder knocking out Dominic Breazeale in the first round, a massive 22-1 long shot bet. "Based on everything Wilder has expressed leading up to the fight and his true dislike and beef with Breazeale, expect Wilder to come out and try to get rid of him early to make a statement," Kahn told readers. The result: Wilder ended it at the 2:17 mark with a violent one-punch knockout, and everyone who followed Kahn's advice cashed huge.

For Saturday's card, we can tell you Kahn likes Katie Taylor (-400) to win her rematch with Delfine Persoon and retain her lightweight titles. Taylor won a controversial majority decision over Persoon in June 2019. "Taylor will use her ring IQ and boxing skill to make this fight easier than the first meeting, taking control from the opening bell," Kahn said.

But he has an even stronger pick on Whyte vs. Povetkin, and he's also predicting exactly how long that fight lasts. Kahn says there are three critical X-factors that give one side all the betting value. You NEED to see his picks and analysis before you bet.
