Dmitry Bivol’s contract amount will increase significantly in a rematch with Saúl Álvarez. This was announced to RBC Sport by the president of the promotion company “World of Boxing” and promoter of Dmitry Bivol, Andrei Ryabinsky.

“The amount of Dmitry’s counterattack in the rematch with Alvarez will increase significantly, that’s for sure. I cannot reveal the amount,” Ryabinsky said.

“He turned the best boxer in the world into a helpless one.” Bivol Victory Experts

Bivol defeated Álvarez and defended the World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight title (up to 79.38 kg). The fight took place on the morning of May 8 in Las Vegas. The Russian defeated the Mexican by unanimous decision. The three referees gave Bivol the victory. Álvarez is the absolute world champion in the second middleweight (up to 76.2 kg). At stake in this fight was only Bivol’s belt.

Before the fight, Kornilov told Match TV that the contract contained an immediate revenge clause only if Álvarez lost. After the fight, the Mexican announced his desire to have a rematch, to which the Russian boxer agreed. “No problems. Let’s talk about revenge. Initially, I just wanted this fight without any conditions. Now I want some conditions for myself and of course this revenge will happen,” Bivol said.
