The World Boxing Council (WBC) has confirmed that Dillian White has lost the right to fight for the world heavyweight title after Saturday's defeat to Alexander Povetkin.

Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs) vs. Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs) for an interim WBC heavyweight belt will take place on Saturday at Brentwood.
