Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte will meet again for the WBC interim heavyweight title and their place in line to face the winner of Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury.
Back in August 2020, Povetkin stunned Whyte after coming back from two knockdowns to score a fifth-round TKO that would rank among the best knockouts of the year. It earned Povetkin the WBC interim heavyweight title, but Whyte immediately activated his rematch clause for a return bout.
After a few postponements due to COVID, the two are finally set for the highly anticipated rematch where we will see if Whyte (27-2, 18 KOs) can avenge his loss against the 41-year-old Povetkin (36-2-1), who is targeting another title opportunity in what appears to be the final stages of his boxing career.
When they first fought, Dillian Whyte put Alexander Povetkin down twice in the 4th round.
Then came the 5th.
