The much anticipated rematch between the Bodysnatcher and the White Lion is on! Read on for your full guide to getting a Alexander Povetkin vs Dillian Whyte 2 live stream and watch the Heavyweight title fight online from anywhere.
Taking place in the somewhat unusual setting of Gibraltar, Brixton-born Whyte will be determined to exact revenge tonight, having been way ahead on points in last August's encounter between these two fighters, only to see his hopes of taking the WBC interim heavyweight vanish.
Despite his commanding position, Whyte was left stunned by Povetkin, after an incredible uppercut by the Russian ended the fight in the fifth round.
Quick to take up the rematch clause, Whyte has been left frustrated after this fight was postponed three times in order for Povetkin to recover from Covid-19 and also due to travel restrictions.

How to use a VPN to unblock any restrictions
If you're outside of your preferred broadcaster's boundaries, you can use a VPN to unblock any geo-restrictions and live stream Povetkin vs Whyte 2 as if you were right at home. Here's our step-by-step guide on how to do just that.
- VPN - standing for virtual private network - offers security and anomality as you browse online, using set protocols to encrypt your data and make it unreadable to outsiders.
- As a part of that, you can also switch your IP address, which identifies your location.
- Most VPNs offer a list of locations where its servers are based to join. Connecting to them switches your IP to appear as if you're browsing from that country/city. In turn, you can then access content locked to that country.
- When it comes to finding a VPN, you should make sure you find the best one that's suitable for your chosen device, with VPN providers offering compatibility for a ton of devices, including VPN for Mac, VPN for Android smartphones, an iPad VPN, and even a range of fairly nifty free VPNs.
- Once you've made the decision for the most suitable VPN for your device and your means for using a VPN, sign-up and install it.
- To live stream the Povetkin vs Whyte 2, all you need to do is select a UK server from its list of available servers and connect. You'll then be able to hop over those geo-restrictions with the likes of Sky Sports or DAZN opening its online gates to you.
- We also want to ensure your money is well spent, so we would recommend going for a VPN that offers a risk free trial. ExpressVPN is one of many providers that has a 30-day money back guarantee (opens in new tab).
