Former light heavyweight leader Russian Sergey Kovalev (34-4-1, 29 KOs) is pleased with the victory of compatriot Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) over the P4P rating leader Mexican Saul Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs).
Tendril? Which Usyk? Canelo Alvarez failed Bivol – a report about this event
Kovalev showed how he watches the fight in the company of friends: “Come on, Diman, we are for you! Dolby him! I saw a redhead – kill! (laughs)”
The victory allowed Bivol to break into the top 10 for the first time P4P rating from WMMAA. It is possible that soon the fighters will have an immediate revenge. The winner said: “Let’s meet Canelo in a rematch for 4 titles”, and promoter Eddie Hearn is “almost confident in Saul’s decision.”
It is interesting that Kovalev will also soon enter the ring – this Saturday he will make his debut in the cruiserweight limit against the winner untested on the top opposition Olympic Games Bulgarian Tervel Pulev. We have already prepared a prediction for this fight. The last time Kovalev was seen in the ring in November 2019, he lost by knockout to the same Canelo.
