The ceremonial news conference for his May 7 fight with Dmitry Bivol was held at the Sheraton Hotel in San Diego, and he drove himself there. Canelo Alvarez is taking advantage of his status as king by going on the attack.
The world’s best pound-for-pound boxer showed up for his press conference in a blue luxury sports car on an 85-degree San Diego day. Life isn’t difficult for 30-year-olds who are confident and self-assured.
The Mexican super middleweight champion and San Diego resident (57-1-2, 39 KOs) had a number of choices. Hearn and Matchroom Boxing invited Alvarez to a rematch in 2022, which Alvarez accepted. Anthony Dirrell, the WBA World Light Heavyweight Champion, will take on Dmitry Bivol in Las Vegas on May 7.
A third meeting between the two boxers is on the cards if Alvarez prevails, and he will fight Kazakhstan’s Gennady Golovkin at super middleweight.
Alvarez and Bivol appeared on select boxing websites, including NYFights.com, before of the official announcement on March 2. The two men come from vastly different backgrounds.
The media, including Gayle Falkenthal of NYFights.com (third from right), met with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez prior to the formal press conference. It was taken by Matchroom photographer Ed Mulholland.
Alvarez has boxing in his grip, to put it kindly. Clearly, he understands this. From his point of view, that’s just the way things are. He’s not a snobby person. He is surrounded by wonderful people, including his loving family, a lovely house in which he can relax, beautiful weather for golfing seven days a week, and close friends with whom he can socialize anytime he likes.
Bivol had came in the United States from Russia, where he had recently left a tumultuous situation. For the next eight weeks, he must leave behind his family and friends while he trains for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Dmitry Bivol’s prospects against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez were reviewed on the DAZN Boxing Show.
Russia’s WBA light heavyweight champion will face Mexico’s undisputed 168lb champion in a DAZN broadcast on May 7th (except Mexico and Latin America).
Since Canelo’s victory against Sergey Kovalev, his domination of super middleweight category has given him the possibility to move up again in 2019. They believe that the champion of Mexico will face an uphill battle against Akin “Ak” Reyes. Similarly to Caleb Plant, I didn’t have high hopes for the press conference that he held “Ak was aware of what was going on.
When it comes to treating others, Bivol goes above and above. You’ve also heard of Canelo, I assume. If you treat him with respect, he will treat you the same way back. It’s safe to say that Barak is certain that Bivol won’t want to miss out on such a great opportunity.
He said that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
He has a great deal of potential here. The fact that Canelo isn’t facing a lifeless corpse gives him a fighting chance here. It’s safe to say that he’s the best in the business. Assuming the opportunity arises, he’ll jump at the chance. “He’s ecstatic,” he responds.
This battle will take place in Las Vegas on May 7, which is Canelo’s second home, according to Ak. “It’s going to be a huge deal. “That’s exactly what I wanted to happen. I’m looking forward to this epic showdown at a large arena. Size in this range is the limit of what is possible “‘I’m done,’ he concludes.
