World Heavyweight Championship Boxing returns to Manchester Arena on Saturday 2nd May 2020.
WBC Interim Heavyweight Champion Dillian ‘Body Snatcher’ Whyte makes his first defence against ‘Russian Vityaz’ Alexander Povetkin.
The Brixton Heavyweight is on an impressive run of victories beating Mariusz Wach on points in his last outing on the JoshuaRuiz2 undercard at the Diriyah Arena, Saudi Arabia (December 2019).
Dillian won his title in the previous fight against Colombian ‘Kaboom’ Oscar Rivas (O2 Arena, July 2019).
Other boxers he has defeated on his way back to the very top of the heavyweight division include : Dereck ‘War’ Chisora (Twice), Joseph Parker (Former World Champion), Lucas Browne (Former World Champion) & ‘The Nordic Nightmare’ Robert Helenius.
Now Whyte has one of the toughest opponents in Olympic gold medallist and former WBA World Champion Alexander Povetkin.
Speaking to the media Whyte said :
“This is a great fight, Povetkin has won Olympic gold, loads of experience, is a former World Champion and only lost to Joshua and Klitschko.
“He is still very dangerous though and gave AJ lots of problems and went on to beat Hughie Fury. I am not overlooking him at all, he will come in shape, he is tough and very well-schooled.
“You really only have to look at the guys resume to see why he’s always been considered as one of the most fearsome punchers in the Heavyweight division with big Knockout wins over Huck, Charr, Takam, Wach and Price.
“He showed in Saudi Arabia that he still has a lot left in the tank and he is still very dangerous. I’ve got respect for him but I’m on to maximum violence, straight animal instinct.
“I want to be the Heavyweight Champion of the World so anywhere is my lion’s den. If you aspire to be the best then you should be able to fight anywhere.
“Manchester is a great city with great fight fans and I am looking forward to going back there.”
Promoter (Head of Matchroom Boxing) Eddie Hearn took to social media and tweeted :
Prices range from £40 costing up to £400.
