Fresh from conquering the super-middleweight division, the great Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez returns to 175lb to face WBA champion Dmitry Bivol this weekend.

Support comes from 14-0 heavyweight phenom Filip Hrgovic, who faces unbeaten Olympic silver medalist Zhang Zhilei in an intriguing collision.

What They Say:

Alvarez

“Right now, I have Bivol,” said Canelo. “He’s stronger than Kovalev, yes. He’s a solid champion at 175, a really good fighter. So, it’s a challenge for me, and this kind of challenge motivates me. I’m trying to extend my legacy.  [Media Conference Call]

Bivol

“Of course he has good power, he has good skills, but most people think about him like he’s untouchable or he’s unstoppable, or he has enough power to beat super heavyweights. Sometimes it’s funny to hear about him from people. First of all, he’s a good fighter but he’s a man and he had a loss and draw — it means if you believe in your skills, if you’re a good boxer you could make him one more loss.” [Fight Hub TV]
