Dmitry Bivol vs Canelo Alvarez Prediction
Alvarez deserves more credit as he moved up his weight to challenge Bivol. However, Bivol also got enough attention as he is an excellent combination of punches and knockouts. Moreover, he has good control of his body shots while also maintaining distance.
In terms of performance, both fighters have similar attributes, but Alvarez might face issues due to his height, as he is around 5 inches shorter than Dmitry. So, Bivol will get an advantage for sure, and he has a chance to win the bout. Therefore, we predict a win for Bivol via MD12.
