“Both fighters announced a rematch. If it’s spelled out in the contract, I think it definitely will be. There is such an expression: sequence. This is what I liked the most: that plan, that strategy that was chosen, was carried out. There are always possibilities. Dmitry proved today that he is a good guy. I am very happy for him. But Álvarez is not in vain considered the best boxer count by count. The Mexican will try something next time. I hope that at this time Dmitry will come up with something new.

“The big battle before the big party. Dima is just great, she didn’t give Álvarez a chance. I was a little surprised at how defenseless Alvarez looked in this fight. Dima turned one of the best boxers on the planet into a helpless one. First of all, Dima built a very good defense, Álvarez only had a couple of shots on goal, the rest were missed or with the gloves. Dima showed boxing of the highest class, he is an invincible champion by right. Even if there is revenge, only on Dima’s terms, with a flag, an anthem. But in this rematch, Álvarez will have few opportunities, ”Drozd said, quoted by RBC Sport.

“The last two rounds are something, great offense, great defense. All I saw was an improved version of Rocky Marciano. Bivol’s technique is even better than Rocky’s. He did an excellent tactical job. Bivol is simply a genius, one of the smartest boxers in history. I am in shock, I thought that such a box was kept in the 70’s, but here it is right in front of me. Just fantastic,” Taktarov told RBC Sport.
