*) . (*2) (*3) (*4) (*0_ Unbeaten heavyweight world champion Dmitry Bivol defends the title he so diligently worked to achieve.
The California-based fighter has made a name for himself in the ring over the past few years. His impressive knockout runs have helped him rise through the ranks. Many fight industry insiders believe he will be the next great fighter in the division. He has the skills and strength to make it to the top of the cruiserweight ranks if he wants to leave a lasting legacy.
Bivol is a global sensation who could become a worldwide sports journalist if he beats him at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. His opponent is the only issue.
Standing between Bivol, greatness and the greatest pound-for-pound fighter in the world is Saul Alvarez. Since his time in Mexico, the record-breaking Mexican fighter has become a huge success. Finding success in a country renowned for producing some of the best boxers that ever lived is no mean feat, but entering the ring at the young age of 15, when many stars of the sport were still safely tucked away in the amateurs, makes him great. Canelo will live on in the boxing world as a legend.
He’s the fighter dads should show their children in the future. This Mexican fighter is a redhead and you can learn a lot about boxing from him. You will learn how to defend, attack and take on any opponent. Also, you’ll have the courage to face the greatest fighters in the world, while not worrying about keeping a valuable unbeaten record.
In short they will say, “Look at one of our greats.” Canelo could be forgiven for admiring the work he has done, since he is already a part of his legacy. But despite this, he doesn’t want to. Canelo is a man who always wants more.
Dmitry Bivol vs Saul Alvarez Pick
Alvarez in rounds 9-12 +550
Boxing is a sport where anything can happen, and we’ve seen some monumental upsets over the years. Madison Square Garden saw the most shocking shock, when Anthony Joshua lost his title as world heavyweight champion to Andy Ruiz Jr., an opponent with no chance of winning.
This sport is very popular because it is open to all possibilities. A fight is only one round away for an underdog. An outsider rank is always dangerous. This is the fight game that we all love.
Can Bivol defeat Alvarez? He can. The better question is: Will Bivol defeat Alvarez? We seriously doubt that.
With this champion, we have an opponent who is naturally stronger and bigger than us. This is a champion who’s had a long and successful career as a light heavyweight fighter. Now he faces a super-middleweight or natural middleweight who’s moving up in a different division. The problem for Bivol is that, despite the world championship belt and the unbeaten CV, he has only 19 fights, making him a novice compared to his opponent.

This will be an enormous step up for Bivol. He has already passed all of his tests, but has never been in a match with someone who is in the same class as him.
How do you prepare to fight a fighter like Canelo? What are the best ways to find sparring partners who can replicate Canelo’s style, strength, flexibility, and adaptability? This won’t be an easy task, but it will. We are choosing Alvarez as the winner of this fight.
Each of Alvarez’s six victories have been on scorecards. In contrast, Saul is taking his time, building into the fight and asserting himself on his opponent, before getting through the gears to take out the champ before the end. The Cinnamon One will win the second half of this fight by stoppage. We support more of the same.
Dmitry Bivol and Saul Alvarez. Prediction
Much has been said about Canelo’s recent move through weight divisions, but it is not something new for him. For most of his professional career, Canelo has been doing this, adding muscle and dominating those who appear stronger than him. This is what we expect to see.
We expect the fight to be similar to Alvarez’s previous bout at light heavyweight, when he stopped Sergey Kovalev after a round. He will not gamble or rush to enter. He’ll instead box smart, and get Bivol out whenever the opportunity presents itself.
