Canelo Alvarez and Dmitry Bivol will fight in a “thriller” on DAZN on May 7th, according to Eddie Hearn.
Canelo must overcome Bivol in order to compete against Gennady Golovkin in September.
According to promoter Eddie Hearn, he has been training like a “beast” in preparation for his fight with WBA light heavyweight champion Sergey Bivol in Las Vegas.
Canelo is not as muscular as he was in his 2019 battles against Gennady Golovkin and Sergey Kovalev.
Canelo’s face and upper chest became larger after three fights. Canelo cannot afford to bulk up as he did for the Golovkin and Kovalev fights, so he may focus on his cardio.
Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez may or may not meet in September. It is up to Canelo to get beyond Bivol.” This is going to be an amazing fight.
“Both Bivol’s physical and mental health are outstanding.” When you see Canelo, you know he’s going to fight.
If Canelo wins Saturday’s bout, he will face GGG in September. In our opinion, Vegas will win this fight.
Canelo Alvarez’s career and legacy have been completed with a trilogy fight with GGG, an undisputed triumph at 175, and appearances at special events across the world, cementing him as the sport’s leading worldwide personality.
Hearn added that Canelo is willing to fight anywhere on the earth, adding, “He desires to fight in London and Mexico.” Please include me in both of these activities.
He’ll need two Brits to defend his two world titles, and December seems to be either Mexico or London. The first is John Ryder, who overcame Daniel Jacobs, and the second is the winner of today’s match between Buatsi and Richards.
Canelo might face one of these fighters in December, but first he needs to overcome Bivol.
Because of Bivol’s heightened state of mind, I’m confident that Saturday’s fight will be fantastic. I had a discussion with Saul. He is a monster masquerading as a human. Look elsewhere if you’re seeking for suspense.
The fight between Canelo Alvarez and Dmitry Bivol is only a few weeks away.
Canelo Alvarez has faced some of boxing’s most notable opponents.
Gennady Golovkin, Miguel Cotto, Erislandy Lara, and Austin Trout are among his previous opponents. On May 7, WBA (super) super-middleweight champion Dmitry Bivol will face the undisputed super-middleweight champion on DAZN PPV (check for Canelo vs. Bivol on DAZN in your country).
The fight’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, feels Bivol is Alvarez’s most toughest opponent to date.
“I need to watch the outcome of the Bivol match first,” Hearn said before discussing Canelo Alvarez vs. GGG. Bivol was in the audience. On the pads, it’s clear that he’s got a lot of skill. This might be Canelo Alvarez’s most difficult fight since his fight with Floyd Mayweather. “This is going to be a tough battle.”
If Bivol defeats Alvarez, he will be defending his championship for the 11th time. At light heavyweight, Artur Beterbiev is the undisputed champion, although Bivol is a capable opponent at 175 pounds. Hearn considers himself to have a substantial advantage over Beterbiev.
(Artur) Beterbiev, in our opinion, is destined for both greatness and annihilation. Dmitry Bivol’s combination of technical genius, intellect, and originality is tough to argue with. Callum Johnson and the others have been targeted by the Old Beterbiev Signs. Dmitry Bivol was hurt in this event when? When was the last time Dmitry Bivol showed genuine weakness in a fight? Never. Is Dmitry Bivol a deserving candidate for this position? “It will be interesting to see how it plays out.”
