The holder of the WBA Super light heavyweight title (up to 79.4 kg), Russian Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) said that he was going to have another fight in the fall – not against the Mexican Gilberto Ramirez (44-0, 30 KOs). ), with whom he will eventually fight on November 5 in Abu Dhabi (UAE) at the insistence of the organization.
According to Dmitry, he already had everything “on the ointment” with another WBA contender Briton Joshua Buatsi (16-0, 13 KOs).
“I wanted to fight Buatsi because I was offered this fight,” Bivol said. – We had a date, we had an opponent and a place for the fight. So of course we wanted to fight Buatsi. But everything changed and I was a bit confused about when and where the fight would take place (against Ramirez). Now I’m glad it turned out the way it did.”
Earlier, Canelo Alvarez admitted that he wants Bivol to lose to Ramirez – then there will be no rematch
