Povetkin and Whyte both fought last December on the evening of Joshua vs Ruiz 2 in Saudi Arabia. The Russian has hardly brought a fight against Michael Hunter to a draw, as the British defeated Mariusz Wach.

For Whyte December bout was a return to the ring after charges against him on alleged use of banned doping agents were dropped. Due to this Whyte regained the title of WBC interim heavyweight champion.

At the same evening in Manchester there will be a few other interesting fights. Martin Bakole and Filip Hrgovic will held a fight at the heavyweights and Callum Johnson and Igor Mikhalkin will battle for the EBU light heavyweight belt.
