Not long after his shock loss to Dmitry Bivol, in a fight that saw him more light heavyweight glory, there was a lot of suggestion that rematch Canelo Alvarez immediately said maybe he wanted to fight him at 168lbs, that’s a more natural and comfortable weight for the Mexican superstar. .
Some fans made fun of this, saying how a rematch at super middleweight would make Bivol somewhat draining and therefore insurmountable. But now, to his credit, Canelo has said the comeback fight will be fought as a light heavyweight, at 175 pounds, as fight one.
Speaking with Fight Hub TV, Canelo said the following:
“Yes [175 pounds]. The conditions will be the same. Because I feel like I need to do it on those terms.”
Once again, credit goes to Canelo for doing the right thing, the fair and honest thing. dangerous thing. Canelo certainly has his critics, but any critic would have a hard time finding anything to moan about here. Canelo would once again attempt to defeat the terrific light heavyweight at light heavyweight. The second loss could be devastating for Canelo, but here he is looking for a rematch without excuses.
The battle, of course, is not a signed deal yet. Canelo, coming off wrist surgery that followed his triple threat fight victory over arch-rival Gennady Golovkin, will face Britain’s John Ryder in a Mexican homecoming on May 6. He insists that there is no tuning.
But assuming Canelo wins the fight that will take place during the big Cinco de Mayo festivities, Bivol-Canelo II will be next. And unless he changes his mind, Canelo will move back up to the light heavyweight division.
Who will win this match? Is it repeated or revenge? And will Bevol fight in the meantime himself, and if so, who is against him?
