Dillian Whyte to face Alexander Povetkin in blockbuster rematch in November

Dillian Whyte has announced that his blockbuster rematch against Alexander Povetkin will be officially confirmed this week.

Whyte was knocked out by Povetkin during their first fight last month after he was dropped in the fifth round.

The defeat saw Whyte relinquish his No 1 challenger spot with the WBC and put any of his world title ambitions on the backburner.

There was doubt the rematch would go ahead after the British heavyweight was handed a 28-day medical suspension.

But Whyte posted on Twitter: ‘Fight news drops tomorrow walking straight back into the fire I want all the smoke let’s go baby.’

The Body Snatcher’s promoter Eddie Hearn gave us a clue what date the fight will take place as he told IFL TV: ‘There’s not many in boxing that honour contracts and honour obligations and their word.

“Andrey Ryabinksiy, Vadim Kornilov and World of Boxing, even if we didn’t have a contract, and we had a shake of the hand or an agreement, they would still do it.
