Russian boxer Dmitry Bivol has every chance to win in a fight with Canelo Alvarez, who leads the ranking of the best boxers. This was stated by the secretary general of the Russian Boxing Federation, Tatyana Kiriyenko, whose words were reported to RBC Sport by the federation’s press service.
“I am sure that Dmitry Bivol has absolutely every chance to surprise many who blindly believe only in Álvarez. I am convinced that Canelo has not yet faced fighters like Bivol. Dmitry has excellent technique, he is in the prime of life. It is clear that the fight will not be easy for both boxers. But I sincerely believe that Dmitry will be the winner. I wish our titled athlete the best of luck, the whole Russian boxing family is behind him,” Kiriyenko said.
