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.

Povetkin stunned Whyte last August, laying the Body Snatcher out with a monstrous uppercut in the fifth round. The Londoner had been cruising through the fight and had dropped his opponent to the canvas twice before Povetkin delivered his brutal bolt from the blue.
Whyte wasted no time in triggering the rematch clause, but the Rumble on the Rock has had to be rescheduled three times.
It was originally set for November but had to be pushed back to January when Povetkin contracted Covid-19, only to be postponed again because the Russian hadn’t fully recovered from his illness, before finally being pushed back from its early March slot to this weekend, because of travel restrictions.
It’s been a long wait for both fighters, but particular Whyte, who looked like he had Povetkin on toast last time out. A potential title showdown against Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua beckons for the winner, so there’s a lot more than just bragging rights for the winner – here’s how to watch a Povetkin vs Whyte 2 live stream from anywhere.
