Canelo Alvarez lost to Dmitry Bivol but What Alvarez was striving to achieve was very astounding. In a year, he unified the four super middleweight championships, then moved on to the four light heavyweight crowns. The bout with Bivol would be the first step on that journey.
It takes a lot of guts for a man who might still be fighting at 160 pounds, if not 154, to try to accomplish these things, but Alvarez’s inner resolve and drive to be great is what makes him one of the best fighters of our time.
We live in an age when too many people play it safe and pick low-risk, low-reward bouts, forgetting that if they want to make a livelihood, they need to appeal to the fans who purchase tickets and pay-per-views.
Jake Paul and Logan Paul react to Canelo Alvarez losing to Dmitry Bivol
Jake is convinced that he will fight Canelo within three years of Dmitry Bivol’s loss. In his attempt to capture a second light-heavyweight world championship, Alvarez was defeated by his Russian opponent.
And Paul, who has previously chastised the pound-for-pound champion, was eager to retaliate, specifically targeting Eddie Hearn, with whom he shared promotional duties for Katie Taylor’s victory over Amanda Serrano last weekend.
Jake took to Twitter and stated, “An amazing fight by Bivol. I’m two inches bigger than Bivol and 40lb heavier. Give me three years and I take out Canelo in the same way. He was up on the ropes like he won but he only won three rounds in the entire fight.”
Logan Paul reacts by stating “Alright Canelo time to fight Jake Paul.” On August 13, Paul will return to the ring, with Fury and UFC great Anderson Silva the frontrunners to face him for the sixth time. The Brazilian will make his boxing debut next weekend on the undercard of Floyd Mayweather’s exhibition battle against Don Moore.
