UPDATE: TONIGHT-REMATCH IS A GO: ALEXANDER POVETKIN VS. DILLIAN WHYTE 2 COMING MARCH 27@ GIBRALTAR, 2021
UPDATE: This fight has been rescheduled for March 27, 2021. Dillian Whyte has agreed with Alexander Povetkin to stage a return match on Nov. 21,2020. Whyte floored Povetkin twice in the 4th round, only to be knocked out by Povetkin’s timely hammer in the 5th. This was one of the fights of the year, a good reason to waste no time scheduling a 2nd go-round. Originally scheduled for Nov. 21, 2020 at Fight Camp in Essex, Covid concerns delayed the fight and prompted a move. The fight will now take place at Gibraltar, a UK territory located near Spain, seen on Sky Sports. Matchroom and Eddie Hearn are promoting this card.
