Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin 2 Goes Down On November 21st”

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte will get an immediate chance to avenge his brutal knockout loss to Alexander Povetkin in a rematch on November 21.

Last month's defeat was Whyte's first since Anthony Joshua put him down in 2015.

One thing is for sure, if he clocks Whyte again, Povetkin will likely get another World Title fight in 2021 with someone.

"I'm excited to announce our latest shows as we continue to bring boxing back during these unprecedented times", said promoter Hearn on Tuesday.

He tweeted: "fight news drops tomorrow walking straight back into the fire I want all the smoke let's go baby".

Despite the heavy knockout, Whyte says he does not need to make any major adjustments.

"I'm looking to do what I said I would the first time, and that's beat Alexander Povetkin".

"I've rested well, spent time with my family and now that the date of the rematch is known, I will soon return to my training camp and prepare as thoroughly as I did for the first fight", Povetkin said. I will be ready to enter the ring on November 21.

"He was able to use his experience against me".

London fighter Whyte, 32, appeared to be closing in on a WBC world heavyweight title fight in their first clash when Povetkin produced an explosive left uppercut to end the fight.

'I will be a lot more focused and sharper in the rematch.

Talking trash has always been a part of Whyte's game, Povetkin on the other hand, not so much. I'm coming to win and knock him out. "I would want the fight to be here in Russian Federation because there hasn't been an event of such magnitude here for a long time". "I'm coming to even the score and the only way to do that is by knocking him out".

Matchroom's third announcement of an event was English super lightweight Lewis Ritson against Mexico's former world Champion Miguel Vazquez (42-9, 16 KOs) on October 17.

Buatsi (12-0, 10 KOs) faces undefeated Croat and former amateur standout Marko Calic (11-0, 6 KOs) on Sunday October 4, topping the bill, with female boxer Chantelle Cameron (12-0, 7 KOs) facing Brazil's Adriana Dos Santos Araujo (6-0, 1 KO) for the vacant WBC super-lightweight world title on her Matchroom debut.
