Is Jake Paul next for Canelo Alvarez?
On Saturday night, Alvarez took on what was expecting to be an easy bout against Dmitry Bivol. But as the fight wore on, Bivol asserted his will.
In the end, it was Bivol who scored the stunning decision win over Canelo. After the fight ended, many were wondering: what’s next for Canelo Alvarez?
To add to the speculation, Jake Paul jumped in to deem he was the guy to take on the longtime dominant boxer.
The answer is no to this. Canelo faculties were in tact enough after the fight to know a fight between him and Jake Paul is never going to happen even after a loss.
He may have been the betting underdog heading into this scrap but don’t be fooled, the boxing clinic Dmitry Bivol put on against Canelo Alvarez inside a stunned T-Mobile Arena was no upset.
As the so-called pound-for-pound king of boxing, Canelo, hunting more history after becoming undisputed champion at super-middleweight, soaked up most of the Las Vegas limelight ahead of his latest tilt at greatness. Yet little were he, bookmakers and the majority of fans aware of the humbling that lay ahead for him.
Bivol, the reigning WBA light-heavyweight champion, could have argued his case as the best 175lbs fighter on the planet before Saturday’s contest and reaffirmed that notion on the night. He has spent over two decades learning and perfecting his craft, with all that’s missing from his repertoire a body of work and superstar appeal similar to that of Canelo’s.
Unlike his crestfallen opponent, Bivol is a bona fide light-heavyweight with an extensive amateur background who has cruised to victory in all of his professional tests to date. Largely due to his obscurity outside of boxing’s hardcore flock of followers, the Russian’s natural size advantage, pedigree and slick technique was somehow ignored in the lead-up to this one-sided affair.
Bivol’s boxing journey began when he first laced up a pair of gloves at the age of six. He was born in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan to a Moldovan father and Korean mother in December 1990 and made the move to Russia 11 years later. It was there, in St.Petersburg, where he first fell in love with the sport.
