WBA light heavyweight world champion Dmitry Bivol admitted that he was a little surprised by two referee notes in a fight against Craig Richards, according to which the Russian, who controlled the fight, defeated the British counterpart with a minimal advantage.

“Of course, I am very glad that I spent all 12 rounds in the ring. I felt what it is like to be in the ring after a year and a half break. Without spectators it looks like sparring, but no one bothers you.

I expected Richards to fight hard. He’s an awkward fighter. Before, I have met opponents like him who move a lot, constantly think during a fight and do not lose concentration. Richards is a light heavyweight fighter who can create problems for any opponent.

The referee’s notes surprised me a little. I felt like I gave him 2-3 rounds to recuperate. However, I won, and it doesn’t matter. The belt still belongs to me, “Dmitry Bivol said in an interview with the YouTube channel Behind The Gloves.
