Eddie Hearn and Matchroom on Friday announced the full schedule for Fight Camp, which will take place throughout the month of August at Matchroom's headquarters outside London and mark the organization's return to live action from its coronavirus-prompted hiatus.

The boxing series will feature all outdoor fights over the span of four weeks in Brentwood, Essex.

Fight Camp will end with a bang on Saturday, Aug. 22, when Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs) will defend his WBC interim heavyweight world title against Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1, 24 KOs). Irish legend Katie Taylor (15-0, 6 KOs) also will fight that night and defend her undisputed lightweight world titles.

Taylor's opponent has not been announced, but Hearn has said he's working on a deal with Amanda Serrano.

The fights will be shown live on DAZN in the U.S. and Sky Sports in the U.K., with the final week on Sky Sports Box Office.
