Bivol on Canelo fight: ‘I’ll take more risks because the opponent is better’


Russian WBA Super light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) Dmitry Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs) is not going to avoid exacerbations in order to protect himself as much as possible in the upcoming fight against the best boxer of our time, Mexican Canelo Alvarez (57-1 -2, 39 KOs).

Dmitry assured that he would take risks, moreover, as much as needed.

“Of course, this is a fight against the best boxer in the world, and you have to take every chance, take risks every time you see it – not sometimes, not from time to time, but every time without exception,” says Bivol. – In this fight, of course, I will take more risks, because my opponent is better (than the previous ones). He goes forward and this is my chance to show all people my skills. And if I want to show everything that I can, then I must take risks.

The Alvarez-Bivol fight will take place on the night of May 7-8 in Las Vegas (USA). Is this “w-w” for a reason? – WMMAA preview.

Canelo also admitted that in the fight with Bivol, he will slightly change his tactics.
