WBA Light Heavyweight World Champion Dmitry Bivol is interested in a fight with WBA / WBO / WBC title holder in the second middle division Saul Alvarez. The manager of the Russian boxer Vadim Kornilov said this in an interview with the Instagram resource Luckypunch.net.
“Fight with Alvarez? Of course, this is interesting to us, as well as to other boxers. Many people want this fight for financial gain, but for Dmitry it is a challenge. Today Saul is one of the best, many consider him one of the best boxers, regardless of weight By defeating such a boxer, you can reach a new level and achieve great respect in the boxing world.
If the stars converged, and we managed to agree on a fight with Alvarez, it would be very interesting. Canelo said that he has no plans to return to the 79 kg weight class and is considering fights of 72 and 76 kg. Dmitry has repeatedly stated that he can do 76 kg, and, in principle, this makes the Alvarez – Bivol fight more possible in the future.
I think this may happen later, since Dmitry will still win at least one or several belts in his weight category, “said Vadim Kornilov.
Recall that this morning Alvarez defeated Billy Joe Saunders ahead of schedule.
