The Mexican boxer Saúl Álvarez, after losing to Dmitry Bivol, described the Russian as a great champion.

“Bivol is a great champion. Sometimes in boxing he wins and sometimes he loses. I’m not going to make excuses. Today I lost, and he won,” he is quoted by TASS.

Alvarez said he wants a rematch. “This can’t end like this,” he said.

Bivol, in turn, said that he was ready for revenge. “No problem, let’s talk about it,” replied the boxer.
