OVERVIEW OF: Dillian Whyte’s rematch with Povetkin gets new Date
The boxing heavyweight rematch between Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin will now take place on March 27 in Gibraltar.
The bout was originally fixed for March.
But COVID-19 travel restrictions have seen the fight pushed back three weeks.
Boxing promoter, Eddie Hearn, said: “In the current environment we are always having to think on our feet,” said Hearn.
“We did everything to try and make March 6 happen but with the new travel restrictions, it was impossible.
“Now we have something outside the box, compelling and a unique setting for one of the heavyweight fights of the year – roll on the Rumble on the Rock!”
Whyte is attempting to avenge his shock knockout defeat last summer.
