Dmitry Bivol puts his WBA (Super) light heavyweight world title on the line this weekend at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. Going for that title will be former WBO super middleweight champ Gilberto Ramirez.
Bivol is best known for his last outing. In May the Russian took a unanimous decision over Canelo Alvarez, showing the world the jump up from middleweight to light heavy was no cake walk — even for the consenus best boxer on the planet right now.
Bivol comes into this one with a 20-0 record (11 KOs). He won the WBA title in 2016 and has defended it on 11 occasions.
Ramirez, or ‘The Golden Southpaw’, has a 44-0 record (30 KOs). His last fight was also in May. That’s when he KO’d Dominic Boesel in four rounds.
Bivol vs. Ramirez starts at 1:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 5. The main event ringwalks are expected at 5:09 p.m. ET.
