WATCH Povetkin vs Whyte Live Stream Boxing fight Online. This is rematch between Alexander Povetkin vs Dillian Whyte 2 live has been rescheduled and is now set to be one of the first major fights in 2021. The two were set to meet again in November following Povetkin’s stunning win over the summer but the Russian tested positive for coronavirus ahead of their clash and it had to be called off.
Alexander Povetkin vs Dillian Whyte 2 sees ‘The Body Snatcher’ put his top-level career on the line, although a further delay means we don’t yet know exactly when it will happen.
As Povetkin continues his recovery from the COVID-19 virus, it is likely the bout will be pushed back from its already-rescheduled January 30 date.
The Brixton man knows he cannot lose to the Russian again after suffering a devastating fifth-round stoppage at the hands of the former world heavyweight champion at Matchroom Fight Camp on Saturday August 22.
That shock, defeat courtesy of a beautiful left uppercut, wrecked Whyte’s dream of a shot at the winner of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 for the WBC world heavyweight title, and now his very career at the top is under threat.
A win would see him regain his spot as WBC mandatory contender, but would give no guarantee of when his title shot may come. Last time he waited more than 1000 days for his chance before falling at the very last hurdle.
