Dillian Whyte has laid down the gauntlet to Alexander Povetkin by declaring that 'if he wants it, he can get it' should the Russian wish to step in the ring with him.
The British heavyweight will meet with his promoter Eddie Hearn next week to discuss his plans for 2020 with Povetkin on his radar.
Whyte's last fight saw him beat Poland's Mariusz Wach by an unanimous decision last month on the undercard of Anthony Joshua's victorious rematch against Andy Ruiz Jnr in Saudi Arabia.
