Bivol: I can knock out Canelo…


Already this Saturday T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas (USA), the undisputed super middleweight champion Mexican Saul Canelo Alvarez (57-1-2, 39 KOs) will try to take away the WBA Super belt from the undefeated Russian light heavyweight Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs).


Before the fight
the underdog from Russia said, who feels calm and confident, talked about the confrontation of styles: “I don’t feel any special pressure. Roughly the same as on the eve of any other fight. All fighters have their own unique style. How can I surprise Canelo? The fight will show. I’m just trying to do my job. Perhaps if I manage to do everything that is planned, this will be a surprise for Alvarez.

In the event of a victory over Bivol, Canelo expects to enter the third fight in September with his antagonist from Kazakhstan, Gennady Golovkin. The Russian is not upset by such self-confidence of the opponent: “We are all planning something. But such is life, plans sometimes change. And his plan may also change after our face-to-face fight. We have 12 rounds ahead of us. I don’t want to think about what will happen next. Now it doesn’t matter. How will the fight end? I don’t know. Maybe by points, maybe by knockout. We both have the necessary power to win by knockout. Yes, I can knock out Canelo, why not? This is boxing…
