Dillian Whyte risked his WBC mandatory world title shot against Alexander Povetkin, and the gamble back-fired as he was knocked out in sensational style in the fifth round of the fight. Express Sport has all the results from the full fight card, including Katie Taylor’s rematch with Delfine Persoon.
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.
