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.”
