Canelo vs. Bivol Fight Card, Odds
Canelo Álvarez has bulldozed his way through weight classes, racking up four world titles and an impeccable record of 57-1-2 with 39 KOs. His only loss was to Floyd Mayweather back in 2013, and he’s now widely regarded as the best currently-active boxer.
But Álvarez faces a worthy challenger in Dmitry Bivol. The Russian boxer has yet to lose a professional match with a career record of 19 wins and 11 KOs, and he’s held the WBA light-heavyweight title since 2017.
Most experts have Canelo as the likely favorite against Bivol. As of writing, Caesars Sportsbook has Álvarez’s money line odds at -500, and Bivol’s at +400. Still, no one has seen Bivol lose a professional match, so the fight isn’t all that easy to call.
Leading up to the Álvarez vs. Bivol fight is a stacked undercard worth tuning in for. In a super-lightweight match, Montana Love will take on Gabriel Gollaz Valenzuela. Welterweights Christian Gomez and Shakhram Giyasov will also duke it out for the IBF North American title.
Sadly, Filip Hrgovic was forced to withdraw from his undercard match against Zhang Zhilei. Hopefully, a new challenger will come last minute to face Zhilei for an IBF heavyweight title eliminator bout.
