Dmitry Bivol vs. Gilberto Ramirez Preview:

Dmitry Bivol, the WBA light-heavyweight champion, returns to the ring on November 5 in Abu Dhabi, his first fight since a stunning upset victory over pound-for-pound superstar Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez earlier this year.

Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) is determined to prove that his recent victory over Canelo Alvarez six months ago was no fluke. In the main fight, he’ll face the cruiserweight-sized Ramirez (44-0, 30 KOs).

Now, the outstanding light-heavyweight world champion hopes to cap off an incredible year by defeating Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez.

The Mexican challenger has waited a long time for an opportunity like this, and now he has the possibility to become a two-weight world champion.

Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez, a powerful southpaw with a spotless professional record, is another Mexican challenge for Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) (44-0, 30 KOs).

Someone has to lose in what looks to be an exciting main event at the Etihad Arena, but there is also a strong undercard with more world title fighting.

Ramirez, 31, is a former WBO super middleweight champion with an excellent record despite never facing a notable opponent in his 13-year professional career.

The most notable name on Zurdo’s career is former middleweight champion Arthur Abraham, who was past his peak and fighting outside of his natural weight class when the two met in 2016.

Aside from Abraham, the next best name on Ramirez’s CV is Jesse Hart, a fighter he narrowly defeated twice with 12-round decision victory in 2017 and 2018.

Ramirez has been pressing for a fight with Bivol for a long time, and now he gets the opportunity to do so.

If Ramirez loses, which seems inevitable, he’ll need to consider moving up to cruiserweight because draining down to 175 pounds has to be really difficult.

Ramirez rehydrated to 203 pounds for his last fight against Dominic Boesel in May. That is an illustration of Ramirez’s size in the light heavyweight division.

Bivol has faster hand speed and movement than Ramirez, who is much slower. As long as Bivol stays off the ropes, this should be a simple victory. Ramirez is a plodder who fights by leaning forward, giving up height, and rendering himself vulnerable to uppercuts.

“I think what we witnessed was a pound-for-pound great in Dmitry Bivol, who was just too good, too big, too strong, and maybe too good on the night for Canelo Alvarez,” Eddie Hearn told Matchroom Boxing after Dmitry Bivol defeated Canelo Alvarez in May.

“I believe that Dmitry Bivol’s reaction after the fight suggests, ‘This didn’t surprise me.'” This man’s veins are filled with ice. I don’t believe his pulse rate ever fluctuates. He’s like ice. “He’s a dangerous man, and he’s ready for anything,” Hearn remarked.

“I have good speed as well, but people thought Canelo had better speed than mine, but my speed is good as well,” Bivol remarked. ”

Chantelle Cameron vs. Jessica McCaskill — undisputed super-lightweight championship

Women’s boxing is on the rise, and Cameron and McCaskill will try to enter the ranks of the sport’s unquestioned champions when they square off in the co-main event.

Clarissa Shields unified the super-middleweight division on October 14 with a spectacular knockout of Savannah Marshall in London, while Katie Taylor defended her WBC, WBA, WBO, and IBF lightweight titles against Karen Elizabeth Carabajal at Wembley Arena over the weekend.

McCaskill (12-2, 5KOs), who lost to Taylor in December 2017, is already the undisputed champion, having climbed up to welterweight and twice defeated the great Cecilia Braekhus.

The 38-year-old American surrendered her WBA and WBC super-lightweight belts when fighting at 147 pounds, with Cameron capturing the latter by majority decision against Adriana dos Santos in October 2020.

The 31-year-old former Team GB star won the IBF title a year later by defeating Mary McGee, and the WBA and WBO have also placed their titles on the line for a contest that should leave no doubt about who is the world’s leading 10-stone fighter.
