The judges gave Bivol the victory, dividing points equally: 115:113, 115:113, 115:113. The Russian defended the World Boxing Association (WBA) light heavyweight title (up to 79.38 kg). Only Bivol’s belt was on the line in this fight.

Commenting on the results of the fight, Álvarez said that he should have won this fight. “I won the fight. <...> I think maybe I lost four or five rounds. But I definitely did not lose the fight,” said the Mexican.

The undefeated 31-year-old Bivol now has 20 professional boxing wins, 11 of them by knockout. Álvarez, 31, is the absolute world champion in the second middleweight (up to 76.2 kg). He spent 61 fights in the professional ring, scoring 57 wins (39 by knockout) with two losses and two draws. Álvarez suffered his first loss in 2013 against Floyd Mayweather.
