Dmitry Bivol Preparing for Beterbiev Like Its the Fight of his Life

On June 1, WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol (22-0, 11KO) and unified champion Artur Beterbiev (20-0, 20KO) will fight for undisputed in Saudi Arabia. Bivol knows how dangerous the hard-punching unified champion is and is preparing for the toughest fight of his career.

The day some boxing fans were hoping for has finally arrived. For a long time, the WBC refused to sanction their belt for the fight due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Bivol is a masterclass boxer who is excellent at his craft. However, the unified champion has above-average boxing ability and packs a punch.


While speaking with Boxing Social, he explained why this is a dangerous fight.

“Of course, he is the toughest opponent in my career. He has three belts, he is the last step before the goal, and I treat him as the most dangerous opponent.”

The WBA champion knows the importance of having the ability to adapt on the fly.

“The real professional fighter has to have a lot of different scenarios. Of course, I have it. I have bad scenarios and good scenarios . . . you have to be ready for improvisation.”

The one department Bivol will have to his advantage is ring IQ. Although Beterbiev is no slouch, the WBA champion has proven to be on another level. Boxing fans are still talking about the way he defeated the undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. With the undisputed crown on the line, boxing fans can expect Bivol to be at his absolute best.
