Boxing Heavyweight title match to take place in Gibraltar

Gibraltar has been announced as the host venue for the Heavyweight Boxing rematch between Britain’s Dillian Whyte and Russia’s Alexander Povetkin.

The British heavyweight was to fight Povetkin in early March but the match has been delayed due to the covid pandemic.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has now confirmed the rematch will take place in Gibraltar, with the British contender hoping to avenge his defeat last summer.

GBC understands the event will be closed to the public.

Speaking on social media, the Chief Minister said the event would be at 'no cost to the taxpayer'.
