The boxing world might be most focused on whether or not Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua will fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship, but it’s not the only heavyweight title out there. WBC interim champ Alexander Povetkin is facing off against Dillian Whyte in a rematch of their 2020 bout. Coverage starts at 3 p.m. ET on SkySports and DAZN.
Tyson Fury holds the WBC heavyweight title, but Povetkin and Whyte fought for an interim version of the title last August. Trying to figure out why there’s both a champ and an interim champ for the same sanctioning body will only make your head hurt. For our purposes, Povetkin knocked out Whyte in the fifth round of their August bout, but had been knocked down twice the previous round. The winner of this bout likely gets a crack at the winner of the Fury-Joshua fight(s).
