Undefeated WBA Super Light Heavyweight Champion Dmitry Bivol spoke about how important tomorrow’s fight with British boxer Craig Richards is for him.
“I missed the fights very much. These one and a half years flew by like a fast, but it’s still a long time. I really want to get into the ring, I’m just eager to fight. I am in good condition, we had the necessary preparation – everything went according to plan.
I understand that I am the favorite of the upcoming fight. I’m a champion and have to beat boxers like Richards if I want to go to other title fights. But I do not allow myself to be relaxed and respect my opponent. If he took this fight, then he believes in his strength. He has earned the right to box for the world title, and he can already be feared. He was not taken from the street and not brought to box, but he won the belt of the champion of Great Britain.
The fact of the battle in England is also important to me. This is the birthplace of boxing, and one of the points in my career was to hold a fight in Great Britain, and this desire is being fulfilled. Boxing is loved in this country, and I would like to show my abilities in front of this audience, “- the website of the Russian Boxing Federation quotes Bivol.
