Boxing is finally getting underway again after being delayed by COVID-19 and the Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin match is finally happening. The fight had been set to take place in May 2020, but for safety concerns around the virus, it had been pushed back several months.
Dillian Whyte has defeated his last 11 opponents and is aiming for a heavyweight title in the near future as he battles Povetkin who has won his previous two fights. The match should draw a large audience as fans wait for the sport to get fully underway again — you won't want to miss out on all the action.
