Russian WBA Super light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol shared his opinion about the upcoming unification fight in the United States on June 18 in his division between compatriot Artur Beterbiev (17-0, 17 KOs), who owns the WBC / IBF titles, and American Joe Smith ( 28-3, 22 KOs), holding the WBO title.
“I think Beterbiev (will win),” Bivol said. – He has more power, although it’s not only about it. He has good boxing skills, good technique. But many people don’t see it. They only see power. I don’t know exactly how, but I think Beterbiev will win. Though that’s just my opinion.”
We add that Bivol himself (19-0, 11 KOs) will defend the title next night against the Mexican leader of the “pound” Canelo Alvarez.
