Former light heavyweight world champion Sergei Kovalev believes that the WBA title holder in his weight Dmitry Bivol can defeat WBC / IBF champion Artur Beterbiev.
“It seems to me that Dima can outbox Beterbiev. At least he can do it. Bivol is more tactful and careful. He practically does not miss punches, which means that he has very developed instincts. moments of these blows. I think Dima is able to defeat Beterbiev. Arthur found a victim, some guy from Germany (Adam Dines, – approx.). The main thing is to be in action so as not to stagnate.
If you look at which of them will win, then it is interesting. And if you fight yourself, then it is interesting with both, but already in my comfortable weight, that is, not in 79 kg “, – said Sergei Kovalev in an interview with the YouTube channel” PRO-box with Vadim Grinikh “.
Recall that Kovalev also named the strengths of Bivol and Beterbiev.
