DILLIAN WHYTE is looking for instant revenge when he faces Alexander Povetkin in their rematch in Gibraltar on Saturday.
Billed as the ‘Rumble on the Rock’, the Body Snatcher knows he must beat the Russian knockout specialist if he wants to keep his world title dreams alive.
Whyte was stopped in brutal fashion by Povektin in the fifth round of their bout in August as an uppercut left him sprawled across the canvas.
But the Brixton boxer has vowed to get back to winning ways after he suffered just the second defeat of his professional career.
Here SunSport breaks down how the two fighters – who will be spending fight week on a £143million super yacht – compare ahead of the huge weekend fight.
Whyte has age on his side, as the 32-year-old is nine years younger than the former WBA heavyweight champion.
As you’d expect, Povetkin has been involved in more fights that his rival, and boasts more wins and knockouts.
The pair have both lost the same amount of fights, with the duo each being knocked out by WBA, WBO and IBF champ Anthony Joshua.
Povetkin – who drew against Michael Hunter in December 2019 – suffered his first loss of his career against Wladimir Klitschko in 2013, where Dr Steelhammer outpointed him.
Whyte stands an inch taller than his upcoming opponent, and he also has a better reach (78 in) than Povetkin (75in).
