15 September 2020

The second instalment of the heavyweight rivalry between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte has been announced!

Due to take place on November 21, the rematch will give Whyte the opportunity to avenge his loss after being defeated by Povetkin in August.

The venue for the rematch is yet to be revealed.

Matchroom also announced Joshua Buatsi Versus Marko Calic will feature on October 4 while October 17 will see Lewis Ritson go against 
Miguel Vazquel and Savannah Marshall will challenge Hannah Rankin for the WBO middleweight world title.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “I’m excited to announce our latest shows as we continue to bring boxing back during these unprecedented times.

“It’s so important to continue the momentum and as we leave behind an epic Fight Camp series, we now hope to see fans return to arenas. As those talks continue with the government, we are committed to running these shows with or without fans.

“I’m particularly pleased to see Joshua Buatsi return to the ring after a year out through illness and the pandemic. Josh is one of the most exciting young stars in the sport and he looks to make a statement as he prepares to challenge for a world title in 2021.

“As women’s boxing continues its rise, Chantelle Cameron gets her chance at a world title against the dangerous Adriana Dos Santos Araujo who has a whole host of victories on her amateur and professional CV.

“A couple of weeks later, the rescheduled Newcastle card emerges with Lewis Ritson against former world king Miguel Vazquez and an all-British world title fight between Savannah Marshall and Hannah Rankin.

“Then in November, the big one, just a few weeks after one of the most dramatic Heavyweight bouts we have seen, Dillian Whyte rematches Alexander Povetkin in a must-win clash that will be full of drama.”
