Great news for Gibraltar and the businesses. Eddie Hearn is taking his Matchroom show to Gibraltar and although it looks like the public may not be able to attend, the size of Matchroom’s roadshow can’t be anything else but good news for Gibraltar.

And what a show Eddie is putting on! Dillian Whyte v Alexander Povetkin 2 on 27th March Is the main event and Matchroom always have a very strong undercard, so this is going to be one hell of an event?

Matchroom Sport Managing Director Eddie Hearn said: “In the current environment we are always having to think on our feet. We did everything to try and make March 6 happen, but with the new travel restrictions it was impossible. Now we have something outside the box, compelling, and a unique setting for one of the Heavyweight Fights of the Year – roll on the Rumble on the Rock!”

Most visitors to the Harbourguides website will be aware that, as well as keen sailors we also love our boxing and follow it closely, but this rematch with Whyte and Povetkin is one we are all really looking forward to.

If you are part of the limited attendance, or are visiting Gibraltar take a look at our Gibraltar Harbour Guide for information: https://www.harbourguides.com/harbours/Gibraltar

Or our La Linea Guide: https://www.harbourguides.com/harbours/Alcaidesa_Marina_La_Linea

Here you will find information on Accommodation, Restaurants, Bars, Entertainment etc.

If, like the vast majority of people, you cant make it to the event, you can watch on DAZN and Sky Box Office. Get it booked and get settled for what we think is going to be an incredible night on Gibraltar.  

And from all the Harbourguides Crew, as much as we admire and appreciate Povetkin, we will be shouting for a Dillian victory.

But most of all we wish every boxer the best of luck and all return to their families safe and well. You are a special breed and every single one of you is a winner!

Who knows, in years to come, people may be talking about the “Rumble On The Rock” in the same way we still talk about the “Rumble In The Jungle” Now wouldn’t that be something?

Well done Gibraltar (And Matchroom) for putting on this event and making it go so smoothly. Almost every fighter said how good the experience was, including some that lost! And the main event winner Dillian Whyte said when asked about his opinion on Gibraltar "To say its amazing is an understatement. They have been superb. To put me as the first black man on a legal British coin..I can never thank these people enough, I may make Gibraltar my second home and buy a place out here. Im very grateful and my next holiday is gonna be out here”
Well said Dilian, its a fantastic place and hope to see you and other fighters out here again soon.

Europa Sports Stadium is the actual venue. Its a multi-purpose stadium where Gibraltar held their Island Games.

As far as I know the actual venue is somewhere near Europa Point? Does that help?

Congratulations to Dillian Whyte for getting a two pound coin made of him and Povetkin to celebrate the Rumble on the Rock. What an event this is going to be.

I have some friends in Spain who are boxing crazy. They want to get to Gibraltar for the Whyte Povetkin Rumble On The Rock fight. They dont think thay will be able to get tickets to the show, but just want to be there to seee all the boxers and trainers. Can they pass through the border with negative covid tests? Three of them are English and one is Spanish.

I dont think its possible for people to travel from the UK to Gibraltar without special reasons, as in essential workers. Government guidelines were that there was to be no holidays at all as yet, even in England. So I am not holding up much hope, but as you say, there are other ways to watch from home.

it’s difficult to guarantee or rule out anything at the moment. Things change every day. Let’s just hope the fight goes ahead and if we can’t attend, then its Sky Box Office or DAZN. Either way its going to be a great night!

Hi Si Z
Again, we are not qualified to answer. Travel restrictions are changing all the time. The fight is only four or five weeks away, so I think there will have to be some extreme changes before this is possible. But keep positive
