Whyte defended his WBC interim title against Alexander Povetkin on 22 August at the Matchroom Sport headquarters in Brentwood, Essex. Whyte lost the fight via technical knockout in the fifth round, losing his WBC interim title and mandatory position for Tyson Fury's WBC title. He had started off well and controlled the fight in the first four rounds, knocking Povetkin down twice in the fourth round. However, just 30 seconds into the following round, Povetkin landed an uppercut which left Whyte flat on his back, prompting the referee to call an immediate halt to the contest.

On 27 March 2021 Whyte beat Povetkin in the rematch by a technical knockout in the fourth round.
