The bout was originally set to take place at Wembley at the start of the month, but after a few false starts, will now go ahead on Saturday 27th March at the Europa Point Sports Complex in Gibraltar.
“It just annoys me," said British fighter Whyte (27-2-0). "It's been a long camp. Next time the bell goes, I’m going straight for the jugular. I’m not trying to spend extra time with this guy or in this fight. Get my belts so I can go home."
The Body Snatcher, 32, dominated the pair's first encounter until the unfancied Russian (36-2-1) caught the Brit with a thunderous uppercut. This time around, Whyte is looking for revenge: "I definitely want to knock him out, one hundred per cent."
Povetkin won't be taking this match lightly. "The people who know me know that I fight until the end," he said. "You can’t throw the towel in until the referee stops the fight."
Just to add a little extra spice to proceedings, Ricky Hatton's 19-year-old son, Campbell, makes his professional debut on a packed undercard.
