One of the most anticipated heavyweight clashes of 2020 was postponed for a second time, Matchroom Boxing reports.
Britain’s Dillian Whyte and Russia’s Alexander Povetkin will have to wait some more time before they face each other in the ring. Initially, the pair had to square off on May 2 in London, but the coronavirus pandemic canceled the fight.
Then it was rescheduled for July 4 in Manchester, but yesterday it was told that the event will be postponed because the BBBofC is still not regulating fights in the UK because of the Government restrictions that are still in place.
