The Russian boxer Dmitry Bivol defended his title of world boxing super champion according to the World Boxing Association by defeating the Mexican Saúl Álvarez.
In Las Vegas, Russian boxer Dmitry Bivol met the already legendary Saúl Álvarez from Mexico, who became world champion in four weight classes. And it was the opponent of the Russian who was considered the main favorite.
Alvarez has already met with one of the Russian light heavyweight world title holders, Sergey Kovalev, and knocked him out. Many North American experts were confident that Álvarez would win this time.
Bivol had 19 fights under his belt and in all of them he became a winner, 11 times he knocked out his opponents. Alvarez’s record is much more significant: 57 wins (39 by knockout), two losses, two draws.
At the beginning of the fight, it was difficult to give one of the boxers an advantage, but towards the end, the Russian boxer’s advantage became apparent. And the fear was only that the judges could make a biased decision, either giving the Mexican the victory, or fixing a tie.
But that didn’t happen. The three referees gave the victory to Bivol with the same score of 115: 113, who defended the title from him. Álvarez suffered his first loss in nine years.
