Russian light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol has repeatedly admitted that he is not very interested in a re-fight with the Mexican Saul Alvarez after the May victory over him.
Bivol has already held several defenses, and is now focused on winning new championship belts.
However, according to the promoter of the Mexican boxer Eddie Hearn, there was an option to hold a rematch in the second welterweight, the winner of which receives the title of absolute world champion in this division.
“Canelo is ready to take that step and I know Bivol doesn’t mind either. This means that we have a chance to organize all this,” the specialist explained.
In such a situation, the Russian boxer, of course, will have an incentive for a new confrontation with Alvarez.
Moreover, if you win this title, after it you can go to the unification fight with Artur Beterbiev. Collecting all the belts is the main dream that Dmitry Bivol spoke about.
