Alexander Povetkin has questioned why Dillian Whyte branded him a "coward" as the Russian continues preparations for a fight against an unnamed opponent in 2019.

Dillian has accused Povetkin of running from him after he issued a verbal challenge following the 39-year-old's knockout win over David Price.

But Povetkin has questioned Whyte on social media and revealed he is already preparing to return to the ring following his defeat to Anthony Joshua at Wembley in September.

Povetkin replied to @DillianWhyte ????Why on earth would Whyte call me a coward? I personally can’t understand! - everything is going according to a plan, I’m not going to tie up with boxing - I’m getting ready for a fight and who will be my rival doesn’t matter to me.
