Dillian Whyte's heavyweight rematch with Alexander Povetkin has been put back to March 27 and will now take place in Gibraltar.

The 32-year-old was set to face the Russian at Wembley on March 6, but coronavirus-related travel restrictions have seen the fight pushed back by three weeks.

English fighter Whyte will be looking to avenge his surprise defeat to Povetkin last summer, when the 41-year-old twice got up from the canvas to knock out Whyte in the fifth round.

Announcing the new date, promoter Eddie Hearn said: "In the current environment we are always having to think on our feet. We did everything to try and make 6 March happen, but with the new travel restrictions it was impossible.

"Now we have something outside the box, compelling, and a unique setting for one of the heavyweight fights of the year - roll on the Rumble on the Rock!"
