Eddie Hearn spoke to Barak Bess and Akin Reyes on DAZN and SiriusXM.
The rematch between Povetkin and Whyte was scheduled for late November but Povetkin tested positive for COVID-19 and the fight had to be postponed.
“This is obviously one that people know was gonna happen, but we will be announcing the official date of Whyte-Povetkin II, which is March the 6th. Of course, the first one was the final fight of fight camp, August 22nd. I mean, I can still see it in my mind. And that’s a big fight for the heavyweight division. Of course, while we’re trying to finalize AJ against Fury, Whyte-Povetkin’s right up there.
“You know, it’s for the mandatory position in the WBC. It’s a great heavyweight fight. So, that will be lodged into the opening part of our 2021 schedule. So, big, big fight for Dillian Whyte. It’s a must-win fight. And if he wins that fight, I know he wants a shot at the WBC title.”
The fight, which will be promoted by Matchroom Boxing, Eddie Hearn, will be broadcast on DAZN.
