Dmitry Bivol-Canelo Alvarez II – will it occur this 12 months, and in that case, at what weight? There’s loads of discuss concerning the rematch going down down at 168 kilos, this a weight that would appear to swimsuit Canelo much better than the 175 pound weight class he misplaced to Bivol in again in Might of final 12 months. Nonetheless, Bivol might settle for the rematch at 168 and proceed to take all of the belts the Mexican star holds on the weight.
Such a outcome can be disastrous for the Mexican star about whom some followers are already asking, is he carried out? Bivol beat the brakes off Canelo within the first combat, and so complete was the Russian boxing grasp’s, effectively, masterful efficiency, there’s little cause to suppose a rematch can be any completely different. If something, the return combat could possibly be even worse for Canelo.
Nonetheless, there’s, perhaps, an opportunity Bivol can be considerably weakened if he took the rematch down at 168. As Bivol mentioned when talking with Boxing Social, he has to consider this extra, as he has not boxed at 168 “for a few years.” Bivol, although, did say that whichever combat out there’s best to make – as in from a promotional and political standpoint, not so far as his capacity to make the load – is what he needs. Bivol needs belts, extra belts, be it at 175 or, if he does resolve he could make the load and never be compromised, 168.
“I need extra belts,” Bivol mentioned. “It doesn’t matter who (I combat), I simply need extra belts. Mild-heavyweight or super-middleweight, whichever is best to make [the] combat.”
Canelo, regardless of the loss to Bivol, nonetheless carries loads of clout on the negotiating desk, and perhaps Canelo is ready on having the return combat at 168. And the guess right here is that Bivol, who lives the life and trains onerous, by no means ballooning up in weight between fights, will possible comply with the return at both weight. And once more, if Bivol did beat Canelo once more, at 168, taking all his belts there, what then for the flame-haired one? Might a 3rd profession loss even sign the top for Canelo?
Bivol, 21-0(11) in fact has different choices, big-fight choices – a unification showdown with rival light-heavyweight champ, countryman Artur Beterbiev by far probably the most interesting possibility presently open to the ruling WBA light-heavyweight champ.
Canelo nonetheless has star energy and with it negotiating energy, however Bivol is the fighter at his peak and he has that monster of a combat with Beterbiev to stay up for, to presumably take as a substitute of the Canelo return.
Canelo has these 4 belts at 168, Beterbiev has these three belts at 175. Which is able to Bivol shoot for in his subsequent combat?
