The prestigious strap is on offer at Matchroom’s Fight Camp with the winner of the clash to face Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder next up.

Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin face each other for the WBC Diamond belt this weekend

And WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has taken to Twitter where he has posted a video of the belt Whyte and Povetkin are competing for.

The faces of both boxers are showcased on the belt, with the United Kingdom flag next to Whyte, 32, and the Russian flag next to Povetkin, 40.

Sulaiman’s tweet got the seal of approval from the Body Snatcher who was quick to comment to the post on social media.

He simply roared: “Let’s go baby.”

Whyte is looking to win his 12th consecutive fight since losing against Anthony Joshua in 2015.

Povetkin’s last defeat also came at the hands of Joshua, who stopped him in the seventh round of their world title clash in September 2018.

WHYTE NOISE

And ahead of the fight, promoter Eddie Hearn has ripped into Povetkin’s ‘rascal clobber’ after his team touched down in England.

Such is the fear that the two men could fight before the weekend, Whyte could end up staying in a Winnebago this week.

Hearn revealed: “We are looking at the possibility of hiring a Winnebago and parking it in the private area that we have in the hotel car park because I don’t think it’s safe for Whyte to be around Povetkin in fight week.”

“If we don’t separate these guys they will be rolling down the hill towards the A12.

“It is a serious, serious point I’m making to the British Boxing Board of Control. We need to make sure those two are separated and segregated.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has taken to Twitter to show off the belt on offer on Saturday

“I’m not worried about Povetkin, I’m worried about Whyte because he has already told me: ‘If I see this guy in my face on fight week in that hotel, I can’t be responsible for my actions’.

“So we need to make sure that we don’t have issues. Keep them apart to make sure the fight goes ahead.

“We are looking at contingency plans which includes the Winnebago, and we are seeing if everyone is happy in terms of quarantining.”
