Just six months after becoming the undoubted first super middleweight champion for four seasons, Alvarez returned to 175 pounds for the first time since taking over the WBC position with a knock from Sergey Kovalev in 2019. But that same week he laughed at the possibility. In the future going to heavyweight, Alvarez has not been able to surpass the skills of Bivol, a former Russian athlete whose powers reduce the mistakes of his opponents.

Bivol’s jab was at an all-time high and he responded consistently to every punch Alvarez came with with a white combination in return. Bivol allowed Alvarez to stand next to him but did not give him a good place to climb.

Most of the injuries Alvarez suffered were in the left shoulder and arm of Bivol, who settled on his back.

“I felt his strength. As you can see from my arm, he hit my arm but not my head,” Bivol said. “It’s fine. He had a good speed and strength. Maybe his mistake was to throw hard punches. After a hard punch, he was relieved and tired.

“I was feeling really good. This was the biggest fight in my career and I enjoyed the fight. When people made fun of me, it gave me a lot of strength.”

Alvarez, whose previous victory came against Floyd Mayweather in 2013, connected only 17% of his punches against Bivol and was out with 152 to 84, according to CompuBox. He also told reporters later that he thought he was ahead of the final cards.

“He’s a great champion. Sometimes in boxing, you win or you lose. I lost today and he won,” Alvarez said. “He’s a very good fighter. He’s a fighter who goes in and out. I also felt his strength. It was a great victory for him.”

After the battle, Alvarez shared the hope of a return, to which Bivol seemed to want.

“Repetition? No problem. Let’s talk about repetition,” Bivol said. “I took this fight because I just wanted a chance and just wanted a chance. I’m ready to start again, I just want to make sure I win and be considered a hero now.”

At this stage, it is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The undisputed super middleweight rival is expected to meet Gennadiy Golovkin in September to complete their trilogy, but a rematch with Bivol should take place, just as another rival at middleweight or super middleweight. One thing is for sure, however, this was a Bivol night and they will be able to celebrate in some way.

The undercard saw some rising expectations to take the next step in their development. Montana Love scored her goal and then experienced the experience of Gabriel Gollaz on the verge of victory at the junior welterweight event. And 22-year-old Marc Castro made six trips to impress Pedro Vicente as the bantamweight title slowly made its way to the top flight.
