Bivol Open to Fighting Canelo If The Alternatives Are Limited

Dmitry Bivol has not ruled out fighting Canelo Alvarez again if he cannot find a suitable opponent. 

The Kazakh comprehensively beat Canelo via a unanimous decision to retain his WBA light-heavyweight title.

While the Mexican is keen on rematching Bivol, the two fighters are at loggerheads over the terms of the rematch. 

Bivol is keen on fighting Canelo at 168 lbs for his undisputed titles. Outside of that, the champion has made it clear that fighting at 175 lbs would only be for a belt, with Artur Beterbiev being the unified champion, as the talk of an undisputed fight heats up. 

Meanwhile, Canelo has demanded a rematch on the same terms to dispel any critics who may argue that a potential win over Bivol at 168 was due to him being drained. 

But now Bivol has shown his intentions moving forward. 

“Yeah, if we don’t have any chances to fight against another one for another belt or for, of course, I will fight him, but I’m not. I don’t want the. I’m not so hungry for this fight at 175.

“I already beat him, and I like my positions now. We could make this fight before, but he made two fights [Gennadiy Golovkin and Jon Ryder], and I don’t think much about Canelo fights.

“Only I talk about him only because you are asking me, all of you asking me about him, but in my head, I have my own way. I want to fight for the belt,” Bivol
