“For my purposes, limits don’t exist so I generally need more. Also, who can say for sure? [Fighting at heavyweight?] Maybe.”

Before Alvarez can engage any future proposals at significantly bigger loads, the four-division champion and pound-for-pound lord should initially manage the gifted Bivol, a 31-year-old local of Russia who was brought into the world in Kyrgyzstan and proceeded to partake in a designed novice vocation.

Bivol is frequently taken a gander at as a protected warrior who depends on his footwork, safeguard and procedure to outbox adversaries from distance. Yet, might he at any point dive in and pull out all the stops against Alvarez in the event that the battle calls for it? It’s a suggestion Bivol could have to consider subsequent to seeing Alvarez reliably climb in weight and unquestionably convey his enhancer with him.

Yet, it appears Alvarez is everything except stressed over the power Bivol has. The Mexican whiz has never been down as a genius and has just been noticeably harmed once in a 2010 battle against Jose Miguel Cotto, the more established sibling of future Alvarez adversary Miguel Cotto.

“No, I don’t remember [ever being seriously hurt]. Never, never in my life,” Alvarez said. “One time, when I fought Cotto’s brother, I felt it maybe in my legs but never [before or again] in my head.  

“I have the ideal competing accomplices for me in the gig so that is the reason I can adjust to that sort of style against a tall warrior.”

For Bivol, who caught his title in 2017 preceding making seven safeguards against any semblance of Sullivan Barrera, Isaac Chilemba, Jean Pascal and current WBO champion Joe Smith Jr., the Alvarez battle addresses the perfection of a deep rooted venture.

“Whenever I came to professional boxing, I shared with my group that I need to battle the best to make my own set of experiences,” Bivol said. “Canelo is the pound-for-pound ruler currently so it means quite a bit to me to demonstrate to myself what I can do against the best in the ring. I want to believe that I can do beneficial things in the ring.”
