WBA Super light heavyweight world champion (up to 79.4 kg) Russian Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) admits that he is unlikely to be able to tune in to the upcoming fight against the Mexican Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (44-0, 30 KO) as well as for the duel against Canelo Alvarez in May of this year. However, he tries.
Recall that Bivol defeated the best boxer at that time, regardless of the weight category of Alvarez on points, and will fight Ramirez on November 5.
“I spent a lot of emotions on the fight against Canelo. Now I need to push myself in training, forget about Canelo and think only about Zurdo,” said Bivol. – Of course, it will be more difficult to tune in the same way (as for the fight with Alvarez). But I try to keep focus on Zurdo and train to beat him. I know in my head that I have to train to beat Zurdo.”
- Canelo Alvarez wants Bivol to lose to Ramirez – then there will be no rematch
