Canelo Alvarez and Dmitry Bivol are 100 percent official for Saturday, as the two made weight easily today in Las Vegas ahead of Saturday night’s main event on DAZN pay-per-view.
Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KOs) weighed in at 174.4 pounds, about what he weighed in his other light heavyweight fight in 2019 against Sergey Kovalev. Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs) weighed in at 174.6 pounds for his WBA title defense.
It was, of course, a large, pro-Canelo crowd in Las Vegas, which Bivol took as something new for sure.
“Happy Cinco De Mayo, guys!” Bivol said with a smile to the largely booed audience. “Listening to the crowd is motivating. Why shouldn’t he win this time? I’m just focused on the fight, putting on a great fight for the boxing fans. I’m not thinking about what will come next. I have no plan. My only plans are this fight.”
“I feel proud to represent my country this weekend, I feel very excited,” said Canelo. “I like this kind of challenge. Expect everything from me as always. I will give my best in the ring and of course we want to win. The fans make me feel very happy and motivated. Long live Mexico!”
