This weekend, the eyes of the boxing world will be on Gibraltar for the much anticipated rematch between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte. Billed as the Rumble on the Rock, this heavyweight fight has been a long time in the making having been twice delayed. But now the battle is ready to commence, and you can catch all the action on Sky Sports Box Office with Virgin TV.

The first fight back in August produced a shock result as Povetkin stunned pre-fight favourite Whyte with an emphatic fifth round knockout. Whyte had dominated the opening four rounds, twice knocking down his opponent before Povetkin’s devastating blow ended the contest.

Can Dillian Whyte avenge that disappointment or will Povetkin’s power prove to be the difference again? It’s all set up for an enthralling, unmissable fight.

Bought the fight on Virgin, and wasn't able to watch it. Screen was just black with a W02 error message. Happened with the AJ fight too. Terrible. Phoned customer services who then decided to hang up on me!
