Boxing legend knows how Alvarez can beat Bivol in rematch


The legendary Roberto Duran believes that Saul Alvarez (58-2-2, 39 KOs) will be able to improve for a rematch with the offender, WBC light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs), but he will have to work hard to bring the necessary fixes to your box. This veteran said in an interview
DAZN Boxing Show.

According to Duran, Canelo in that spring fight did not understand how to effectively close with a taller and larger opponent. But this, he says, is fixable, and it is strange that trainer Eddie Reynoso did not correct such mistakes right in the course of the fight.

“I noticed that Canelo didn’t know how to get into the strike zone with the big guy. But this can be fixed. He can correct his mistakes. It’s strange that they didn’t do this back then, ”said Roberto. “But for that, you have to hide your pride away.”

Duran stated that he “would have talked to his manager and asked him to put more massive sparring partners for Saul to box with him.”

“This guy beat me, but he can’t beat me again” has always been my mindset. If the opponent beat me, I always wanted a rematch, ”Duran recalled.

Meanwhile, British promoter Eddie Hearn has named five possible opponents for Alvarez if a rematch with Bivol doesn’t materialize.
