Boxing: Canelo stops being the best pound for pound for ‘The Ring’ and a heavyweight succeeds him

LCanelo’s loss against Dmitry Bivol has caused the Mexican to lose not only his aura of invincibility, but also the privileged position in some lists of the best pound-for-pound boxers, that is, those that classify regardless of the category.

The boxer from Guadalajara was overwhelmed by a rival who traced and executed his plan to perfection, starting from an extraordinary physical base. No one in recent years had absorbed Álvarez’s impacts with such integrity, which allowed the light heavyweight champion to counterattack with all his power on many occasions without neglecting his defense.

The outcome was a victory for Bivol by unanimous decision, which has caused Canelo to be quite relegated in the list of the best of the prestigious magazine ‘The Ring’, when until a few days ago he was in first place.
