Boxers Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin feature on a new £2 coin issued by the government of Gibraltar.

The British heavyweight and Russia’s Povetkin are etched on the coin to commemorate their rematch which takes place in Gibraltar on March 27.

The first coin featuring Whyte and Povetkin was struck at Tower Mint in London on Tuesday.

Povetkin, 41, stunned Whyte with a fifth-round knockout when they met in August.

The winner of their rematch will be well positioned to contest one of the heavyweight division’s four world-title belts but may have to wait for proposed fights between current champions Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to take place first.
