Watch Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin KO from first fight as stunning uppercut floored Brit

Dillian Whyte was knocked out by Alexander Povetkin in August and the British heavyweight is now set for his chance to exact revenge.

A positive COVID test postponed the much anticipated rematch last November, but it is now set to take place this Saturday.

The 40-year-old Povetkin climbed off the canvas twice and flattened Whyte in round five.

Whyte told Sky Sports News in the hours afterwards: “I was bossing the fight, I was winning the fight, I got clocked, it’s heavyweight boxing.

“It’s not like I got beat up round after round, I got clocked, that’s all. He dipped low, I shoot the hook, he came with the uppercut and that was it.

“The main thing is we’ve got a rematch, we’re gonna exercise the rematch.

“I’ll have a couple weeks’ rest and get straight back in the gym.

“It’s not like I need to improve on anything really.

“I have to just be a bit more switched on in certain stages and clock on to his pattern a bit better.

“When he dips low, now I’ll realise he’ll come up with the hook or the uppercut. It’s a simple adjustment to make.”
