The heavyweight is to fight Dillian Whyte for the WBC Diamond belt next Saturday.

Upon his arrival, a picture was shared of Povetkin and his team all wearing tartan tracksuits.

The outfits were topped off with flat caps.

Whyte’s promoter Hearn labelled the look “rascal clobber”.

Sharing the picture on Twitter, he said: “Rascal clobber but bang up for a tear up – Team Povetkin touch down in London ahead of next Saturdays huge fight.”

Fans also found the look hilarious, with one saying: “Diabolical that. Not seen a team outfit as bad as that since the Liverpool cream suits.”

Another said: “They look menacing yet ridiculous at the same time. An impressive achievement.”

One more added: “That’s the most ridiculous looking bunch of human beings I’ve ever seen, but I wouldn’t tell them that.”

DIAMOND GEEZERS

Whyte and Povetkin face off at the Matchroom Fight Camp set up in the grounds of Matchroom’s Brentwood HQ.

It was revealed earlier this week that the prestigious WBC Diamond belt would be on the line.

Speaking to Sky Sports, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: “I’m very excited about it

“I believe that this fight has all the merits for the WBC to award the prestigious ‘Diamond’ belt.
