The Matchroom Fight Camp has been a great success so far, with a quick series of boxing fights during this month of August. Some of the fights were postponed due to the widespread situation worldwide, while others are entirely new fixtures.
In case you didn’t know already, August 22 marks the third attempt for the fight between Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs) and Alexander “Sasha” Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs), following the two forced postponements due to the strict health guidelines.
The fight was initially going to happen back in May, which was then rescheduled for the month of July in Manchester, UK. With the Fight Camp 4 event, fans will finally get to see the press conference, weigh-in, and the fight night between Whyte and Povetkin from August 20 to August 22.
It would be interesting to see whether Dillian Whyte succeeds in defending his WBC interim heavyweight champion title once again. It’s no surprise that Alexander Povetkin is well-prepared to reclaim his former heavyweight world champion title, but only time will tell.
For our readers, we have prepared this guide to watch Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin on Firestick. The fight will take place at the Matchroom Boxing HQ in Brentwood Essex, and you definitely don’t want to miss out on it.

Watch Dillian Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin on Firestick with DAZN
DAZN is a global sports streaming service that mostly carries live and on-demand content from major sports networks and associations. It’s currently available in a few American, European, and Asian countries, and its services are planned to expand into 200 countries worldwide starting from this year.
Last year, DAZN signed a groundbreaking deal with Matchroom Sport worth $1bn lasting eight years, and it’s considered to be the “biggest deal in boxing history.” The agreement gives DAZN the streaming rights to 32 Matchroom Boxing cards every year, which includes 16 Sky Sports Office pay-per-views.
The rest of the cards will be held in the United States, as claimed by the group managing director of Matchroom Sport, Eddie Hearn.
The highly-anticipated Matchroom Fight Camp 4, Dillian Whyte vs. Alexander Povetkin, will be streamed exclusively on DAZN, including the press conference and weigh-in. However, DAZN’s subscription model violates the traditional pay-per-view model.
Fans won’t have to purchase the live Matchroom Boxing event separately from DAZN, as it’s already included in the $19.99 monthly subscription. Alongside the United States, you will be able to tune into the DAZN stream in seven different countries, including Austria, Brazil, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and Switzerland.
It’s worth mentioning that the pricing of the subscription varies by country.
