Kudryashov: Alvarez will not be able to beat Bivol at the level shown in the fight against Golovkin

MOSCOW, September 18 – RIA Novosti, Oleg Bogatov. Skill level demonstrated by second middleweight Mexican Saul Alvarez, champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA Super), World Boxing Organization (WBO), World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) Heavyweight Dmitry Kudryashov gave to RIA Novosti He said that a duel with Kazakhstan’s Gennady Golovkin would not allow WBA Super light heavyweight title holder Russian Dmitry Bivol to win in a possible rematch.

The third fight between 40-year-old Golovkin and 32-year-old Alvarez took place in Las Vegas (USA) and ended with the victory of the Mexicans by unanimous decision. It was the first fight of the representative of Kazakhstan in this weight category. Earlier, the boxers fought in 2017 and 2018 (draw and Alvarez won by decision). Alvarez lost to Bivol on May 8 in Las Vegas and failed to claim the WBA Super light heavyweight title from him. The Mexican expressed his intention to take revenge on Bivol after meeting with Golovkin.

“The most interesting thing is that after the fight with Golovkin, Alvarez announced that he was ready for a rematch with Bivol. But it seems to me that he is not ready. Looking at this fight, I can tell. Dmitry will again be out of reach for Saul. “You have to throw a stronger punch and be noticeably more active to beat it. Alvarez certainly won’t be able to take Bivol down with a thin stroke.”

“Especially now, if Dmitry is already confident in his abilities,” the source said.

Alvarez has defended the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and WBO super middleweight belts, the Mexican has 58 wins (39 KOs) with two losses and two draws. Golovkin holds the WBA Super middleweight title. Due to 42 fights won (37 knockouts), two losses and a draw.
