Cyearling Álvarez got an important victory against Gennady Golovkin that made him retain his super middleweight titles and, although he still has to undergo surgery to repair the injury to his hand, Eddie Hearn is already working on his next fight.

The promoter of DAZN assured that the clear target is Dmitry Bivol, but they will not go ahead to do business, since they expect him to face the Lefty Ramirez.

“Dmitry Bivol is the target. Obviously, he will want to avenge that loss, but Bivol has a very tough fight against Zurdo Ramirez on November 5. We will have to see if he overcomes that, but I think that, for Canelo Álvarez, that will always be on his mind to see if he can avenge that defeat,” he said in words recovered by BoxingScene.

Dmitry Bivol is the target. Obviously, he will want to avenge that loss, but Bivol has a very tough fight against Zurdo Ramirez on November 5.

Hearn denied that the idea of Canelo be back at 175 poundsbut hopes the fight with the Russian stays in that category.

“I don’t think Canelo Alvarez is looking at 175 as a division to which he necessarily wants to return and win belts, but wants Zurdo Ramírez to beat Bivol for Mexico, but he also wants Bivol to win so he can get a chance at a rematch.”

Also, He stressed that this rematch could be at 168 pounds, as long as Bivol can go down to this division.

“Don’t rule out the possibility that Bivol drops to 168 to fight for the title indisputable because he also wants to do that. We have to see, but the November 5 in Abu Dhabi It is a very important date for the division’s agenda”.
