Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte renew hostilities in Gibraltar as the two heavyweights go again following a sensational first bout seven months ago that ended in victory to the Russian.

That bout in Essex saw Povetkin sustain some serious damage from The Body Snatcher before unleashing a stunning punch out of nowhere in the fifth to claim the WBC interim and WBC Diamond belts.

Now you can catch the unmissable rematch, a fight dubbed the Rumble on the Rock, via BT TV as the two heavyweights look to put on a show in the British territory.
