The WBA light heavyweight world champion Dmitry Bivol, after defeating Craig Richards, said that he did not want to sit idle again for a long time if he could not get a unification fight in the event of a duel between WBC / IBF title holder Arthur Beterbiev and WBO champion Joe Smith.
“Of course, this is far from my best fight. You can box better. But I won and I am glad of that, let’s move on. A year and a half – for the first time in my career I have such a break. I can say that my opponent is not bad. He was in a very good mood, the whole fight He didn’t lose focus. Fast, agile, but even with such an opponent it was possible to box better. The main thing is victory.
Of course, I don’t want to sit on pause, because it doesn’t work very well. I want to get some kind of fight in the next 3-4 months. If unification battle is not an option, then there will be such an option.
So far nothing is clear, nothing is known. Even before this fight, there was talk about Ramirez, but I don’t know, so far there is silence. Ramirez seems to be on DAZN, but not with Hearn, but with Golden Boy. We’ll see. Now we need to communicate with the team so that they talk to Hearn and look for some options, “Dmitry Bivol said in an interview with Vasily Konov.
