Boxing legend, the only absolute champion of the heavyweight and heavyweight divisions to date, American Evander Holyfield noted the importance of organizing a fight for the “absolute” in the light heavyweight category (up to 79.4 kg) between the WBC / WBO / IBF title holder Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) and Dmitry Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs), who owns the WBA Super title.
“Bivol vs Beterbiev is one of the most anticipated fights in the world. I think it will be a spectacular show. It is very important that all obstacles are removed and nothing interferes with the organization of this fight, ”Holyfield emphasized.
Recall that Beterbiev’s next fight will be held on January 28 in London (England) against the mandatory contender in the WBO line of Briton Anthony Yarde.
Bivol plans to return in the second half of spring, but has not yet decided on an opponent.
Recently, Beterbiev admitted that he wakes up in the morning and is looking for the title of Bivol.
