Dillian Whyte faces Alexander Povetkin this weekend, in a highly-anticipated rematch. But the evening will also feature a whole host of undercard fights that will whet the appetite for the main event. Here’s everything you need to know about the ‘Rumble on the Rock’.
Whyte will be hoping to get his world title aspirations back on track this weekend, when he faces Povetkin for a second time.
The Brit was expected to finally get his chance to win a world title belt if he were to successfully overcome Povetkin last year.
But despite largely controlling the fight in August 2020, Whyte was ultimately knocked out by the Russian.
The initial fight contract included a rematch clause, and the two boxers will get back in the ring on Saturday night.
The pay-per-view event will also include six undercard fights, Matchroom Boxing has confirmed.
Undefeated JJ Metcalf will fight against Ted Cheeseman for the British super-welterweight title, shortly before the main event.
Fabio Wardley continues his meteoric rise in the heavyweight division, when he faces Eric Molina.
There will also be a highly-anticipated introduction to professional boxing for Campbell Hatton; son of former two-division champion Ricky Hatton.
Young Hatton will come up against Jesus Ruiz in a lightweight contest, with his opponent losing all 10 of his fights.

What channel is Whyte vs Povetkin on?
Whyte vs Povetkin 2 will be exclusively broadcast by Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
It’s a pay-per-view event that will cost £19.95, including the full undercard.
The event will start from 6pm on Saturday March 27, with both fighters expected to make their ring walks from 10.30pm.
The pay-per-view event will be repeated at 9am and 4pm the following day.
The event was originally scheduled to take place in November last year.
But Povetkin tested positive for coronavirus shortly before the fight date, and it was postponed.
The fight was rescheduled for January, but had to be pushed back for a second time after the introduction of new Covid regulations.
Whyte will finally get his chance for revenge this weekend, however, in what’s widely regarded as one of the biggest fights of 2021 so far.
