Canelo Alvarez is satisfied that he’ll defeat Dmitry Bivol of their rematch in September regardless of being outclassed by the proficient WBA mild heavyweight champion final Might in Las Vegas.
What’s unclear is why Canelo (58-2-2, 39 KOs) is so assured of beating Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs) the second time round as a result of the red-haired famous person appeared so extremely misplaced in his defeat on Might seventh final yr on the T-Cellular Area in Las Vegas.
Canelo might want to revamp his complete sport for him to have an actual shot at defeating Bivol as a result of his single-punch fashion of combating isn’t more likely to have success in opposition to a fighter at this stage.
Bivol is simply too sound on protection for Canelo to load up on single pictures and take out as he did in opposition to the 4 paper champions at 168 that he defeated to grow to be the undisputed champion in 2021.
Can Alvarez rebuild himself?
Sadly, Canelo’s poor stamina precludes him from changing into the mix puncher that he would should be for him to have a shot at defeating Bivol. Canelo’s coach Eddy Reynoso would should be a magician to rebuild Canelo at this late stage of his profession.
Whereas Reynoso did a wonderful job of including plenty of muscle to Canelo’s body to keep away from being overpowered by the larger, stronger Gennadiy Golovkin of their first two fights, that received’t work in opposition to a fighter of Bivol’s class.
For the 32-year-old Canelo to immediately in a single day grow to be a high-volume puncher at this stage of his 18-year skilled profession is unrealistic.
What struck many boxing followers as odd was how all three judges scored the Canelo-Bivol struggle an similar 115-113 when in fact, it appeared extra like a 118-110 [i.e., 10-2] struggle through which Bivol gave Canelo a few mercy rounds by taking his foot off the accelerator to have him expend power whereas he rested along with his again in opposition to the ropes.
Canelo assured of successful
“I do know me too, and I do know I’m going to beat him within the rematch,” stated Canelo Alvarez to ESNEWS about his anticipated rematch with Dmitry Bivol in September.
What Canelo has getting in his favor, moreover having the ability to select the venue, is that Bivol has agreed to boil right down to 168 for the rematch.
Eddie Hearn has persuaded Bivol to take the rematch for Canelo’s undisputed tremendous middleweight championship to entice him to take the struggle as a result of he prefers to face IBF, WBC & WBO mild heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev for the undisputed championship somewhat than run it again in opposition to an opponent he already completely beat.
It’s anticipated that Canelo will insist on the Bivol rematch in Las Vegas once more, and it’s predictable that he’ll return to the T-Cellular Area, which is identical venue as final time, and the place his first two contests in opposition to Gennadiy Golovkin passed off.
