Povetkin-Whyte PPV Card: Wardley-Molina, Cheeseman-Metcalf, Campbell Hatton

The Alexander Povetkin vs. Dillian Whyte rematch on March 6, for the interim-WBC heavyweight title, will headline a Sky Box Office show. It will be supported by Ted Cheeseman bidding to regain the British super welterweight title as he faces JJ Metcalf for the vacant belt.

Also on the bill, unbeaten heavyweight prospect Fabio Wardley takes a big step up in class as he faces world title challenger Eric Molina, while Campbell Hatton, the son of former two division champion Ricky Hatton, will make his professional debut.

And Wembley super featherweight Youssef Khoumari faces Birmingham’s Kane Baker.

The Lawrence Okolie vs. Krzysztof Glowacki fight, which was postponed in December when the Polish boxer tested positive for COVID-19, will headline on March 20.

Also on that bill will be Chantelle Cameron making the first defence of her WBC super lightweight title against Melissa Hernandez, of Puerto Rico, while Chris Billam-Smith and Deion Jumah clash for the vacant British cruiserweight title. Ramla Ali is also on that show in her second professional fight.

And Birmingham’s former Team GB standout Solomon Dacres makes his professional debut.

Conor Benn will headline the fifth show of the series, on April 10, when he takes on Samuel Vargas.

There will also be two women’s world title fights on the show, as Savannah Marshall makes the first defence of her WBO super middleweight title against a yet to be unnamed opponent, while Rachel Ball and Shannon Courtenay will have a rematch for the WBA bantamweight title. Ball handed Courtenay her first career defeat when she beat her on points last August.

Also on that card, Commonwealth middleweight champion Felix Cash fights for the first time since his win over Jason Welborn and Glasgow bantamweight Kash Farooq returns.
