Matchroom Boxing

The rematch of one of the biggest upsets of 2020 will have to wait a little longer after Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted that heavyweight contender Alexander Povetkin was in the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19. Povetkin was set to rematch Dillian Whyte on Nov. 21 after a shocking comeback knockout in August.

In the first meeting, Whyte scored two knockdowns in the fourth round only to see Povetkin land one of the biggest knockouts of the year with a short uppercut in the fifth. The win cost Whyte the WBC interim championship and his status as top contender to the WBC world championship currently held by Tyson Fury.
