The WBC Interim Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs this Saturday, March 27 when hard-hitters Alexander Povetkin (36-1-2) and Dillian Whyte (27-0-2) throw down for the second time.

Not only that, but it sent a shockwave through the heavyweight division, with Whyte's career halted because of it.
Povetkin proved the mettle of his chin when he survived getting knocked to the canvas, not once, but twice, by the merciless Whyte before picking up the victory.

What's Been Said?
Discussing the fight in an interview with The Telegraph, Whyte discussed his plan for the bout, saying: “Next time the bell goes, I’m going straight for the jugular. I’m not trying to spend no more extra time with this guy or in this fight. Get my belts so I can go home.”
