November 5 on Etihad Arena (Abu Dhabi, UAE) mandatory contender Mexican light heavyweight Gilberto Ramirez (44-0, 30 KOs) will try to take away the WBA belt from Russian Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs), boxing for Kyrgyzstan.
Despite the status of an underdog, the applicant is confident in his abilities and even
explained, due to which he plans to beat the favorite: “How will the fight end? The referee will raise my hand and I will get my title. I will put pressure on Bivol from the starting gong until the last second of the fight. I will be throwing punches non-stop. I will take the title. Here you will see. Yes, I will fight in assassin mode.”
According to the Mexican, there will be no fights or provocations before the fight, because “we are gentlemen, we know each other well, we often sparred before. In Abu Dhabi, we had a great conversation, exchanged jokes. But the fight will turn out to be gorgeous, and the show will be unforgettable. What is my advantage? I am bigger and stronger. Believe me, it will be very difficult for him with me. I really want to take this belt away from him and bring it to Mexico. This is a great opportunity not to be missed. I will conquer this division!”
Earlier, the Mexican said that Bivol wanted to avoid the fight for fear of losing. He also praised the footwork of the champion and criticized Canelo a little.
