Bivol will return to the ring in October and he has 3 possible opponents – there are names


Promoter Eddie HearnMatchroom Boxing) has already begun planning the next fight of the WBA Super light heavyweight champion Russian Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs). With a high degree of probability it will take place in October.


In May, Bivol upset the undisputed champion of the division below the Mexican Saul Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs). It is possible that exactly in 12 months they will meet in revenge.

“Already started planning, –
tells Hearn. – The fight will most likely take place in October. And, of course, Bivol is interested in a rematch with Canelo. They are both interested in a rematch, but Alvarez must first close the issue with Gennady Golovkin in September. Bivol options? This, of course, is (mandatory challenger) Gilberto Ramirez, as well as Joshua Buatsi and Callum Smith. They are all great fighters. We are currently busy planning, wait for the official announcement.”

The trio of the above contenders perform at DAZN, which will help in organizing the fight. Britons Buatsi and Smith are under contract with Hearn, but it is possible that soon the WBA will officially sanction Bivol’s fight against Oscar De La Hoya’s Mexican Ramirez. At least the boss golden boy already stated this.

True, lately there have been many conflicting statements from the businessman: he sold his successful company, offered Davis millions for the fight with Garcia, said that “Bivol was a nobody”, and for a long time procrastinated on the need for “Charlo to grow eggs”.
