Dillian Whyte will put his WBC mandatory world title shot on the line tonight when he takes on experienced Russian Alexander Povetkin at Matchroom’s final Fight Camp offering. Express Sport will be on hand with all the results, as well as details on how to watch the box office event.
Whyte and Povetkin should be a firecracker of a fight and will likely grab all the headlines when the event finishes, but there are four undercard fights which should also entertain.
To kick things off, Jack Cullen takes on Zak Chelli in a tantalising all-British super-middleweight contest. That will be followed by Whyte-managed Alen Babic’s fourth pro fight with veteran American Shawndell Winters.
In what could be the action fight of the night, Luther Clay will face Chris Kongo – a fight which has been scheduled twice already this year.
And before Whyte vs Povetkin, Katie Taylor will grant Delfine Person her undisputed lightweight world title rematch, following their Madison Square Garden classic last year.

Whyte: “I’m ready for chaos and violence. I am focused on Povetkin.
“I will try to hurt him from the first bell. It will be war – that’s what he does. The great thing is that we both do similar things.
“It’s up to me to do things to make the fight in my favour, and I am capable of that.
“He is more experienced but I know how to fight, which isn’t something anyone can teach.”
Povetkin: “I’m very happy to be here. Thanks to Dillian also for taking this fight.
“Hopefully it will be a great fight in the Heavyweight division.
“I have taken responsibility to train for this fight, understanding how serious it is.
“You have to take Dillian seriously. I don’t like to make predictions – but it will be fireworks…”
