41-year-old Povetkin brings a 36-2-1 record while Whyte, from the U.K, sits at 27-2.
Whyte again comes in as the hot favourite paying 1.25 for the win on Sportsbet.com.au while Povetkin pays 3.75.
The heavyweight blockbuster will be streamed exclusively on DAZN.

The bout will take place out of the Europa Points Sports Complex in Gibraltar with the main card launching at 6 am AEDT on Sunday, 28 March 2021. The main event between Povetkin & Whyte is estimated to start around 9:30 am AEDT.
The bout was originally scheduled to take place in London earlier in the month however Whyte was preparing for the bout in Portugal which at the time was on Covid-19 quarantine list, meaning Whyte would need to quarantine upon his return, impacting his training.
Gibraltar does not have such quarantine rules for people driving from Portugal and the bout was moved there and according to DAZN, 500 will be allowed to attend.
