Dmitry Bivol upsets Canelo Alvarez


Dmitry Bivol upsets Canelo Alvarez, retains WBA light heavyweight title

Canelo loses for only the second time in his career.

WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) put on a boxing clinic against the great Mexican superstar and won a unanimous decision (115-113, 115-113, 115-113) to deny Canelo another win at 175 lbs. Bivol put on by far the best defensive display against Canelo since Floyd Mayweather’s win over Alvarez, and he also consistently outlanded the favored Alvarez throughout the contest.
