Dmitry Bivol Becomes First Boxer After Floyd Mayweather to Beat Canelo Alvarez

Dmitry Bivol pulled off the “impossible” as he handed Canelo Alvarez, the second loss of his professional boxing career. Bivol’s movement around the ring proved to be too much for Canelo Alvarez who lacked luster in his recent outing. 

 

Canelo Alvarez took on Dmitry Bivol for the WBA light heavyweight title bout that took place inside T-Mobile in Las Vegas, Nevada. Alvarez was the favorite going into the fight and remained so right until the 8th round, with boxing fans hoping for a turnaround from the Mexican boxer.

However, Bivol was able to keep his composure and handed Canelo the second loss of his professional boxing career after Floyd Mayweather. 

 

Dmitry Bivol was just too big and strong for Canelo Alvarez and proved more technical on the feet for a fighting style that Canelo brings to the table. Bivol extended his winning streak to 20-0 with a historic win against Dmitry Bivol.

Going into the tenth round, Alvarez had failed to land double digits and significant punches on Bivol. Alvarez’s loss would certainly go down in history as one of the biggest upsets in the sport of boxing.

 

All the judges scored the fight 115-113 via unanimous decision for the winner and still undefeated Dmitry Bivol.

When did Canelo Alvarez last lose?

Canelo Alvarez lost to Floyd Mayweather via majority decision back in September of 2013. It has been almost 9 years since Alvarez tasted a loss inside the boxing ring. 

 Canelo’s reputation is quite high in the boxing world and rightfully so. Alvarez has looked incredible in recent years and is a much more evolved boxer than we saw against Gennady Golovkin. However, that wasn’t enough tonight against Dmitry Bivol.
