Errol Spencer, unified welterweight champion, speaking about the Alvarez winning another belt in a different division again said:
He can, I think he can. He has the skill set, seems like he got the chin, I think he can do it. I feel like Canelo is doing whatever he wants to do - he’s chasing history. What he’s doing is unheard of, skipping weight classes. Fighting who he wants to fight. I don’t feel like he’s ducking anybody.
Alvarez is known for competing and winning belts in many weight divisions. Last November, he defeated former undefeated IBF Super Middleweight champion, Caleb Plant to become the undisputed Middleweight champion. After initially planning to move up to Cruiserweight to fight Illunga Makebu, Alvarez had to settle for the light-heavyweight champion, Dmitry Bivol after Makebu could not make it.
WBA Light-Heavyweight champion of the world, Bivol is ranked as the second-best active light-heavyweight in the world according to The Ring and ESPN. Since becoming WBA Light-Heavyweight champion, Bivol has defended his title 5 times. In his last fight, he beat fellow Russian Umar Salamov with a unanimous decision to remain undefeated.Bet on Canelo Alvarez vs Dmitry Bivol with 1xbet
