Lto defeat of Sal ‘Canelo’ lvarez against Dmitry Bivol continues to generate voices and Eddie Hearn is already working on making the rematch possible, although he himself points out they are against the clock.

Gilberto Ramrez is the one who would have to face the Russian fighter, although the promoter has another option: “Southpaw is being called as mandatory, but we already established an exemption for Bivol to fight Joshua Buatsi, so it will be reviewed by the WBA either way.”

“Buatsi is a great talent. Gilberto Ramrez is also a great talent, a former world champion. Canelo has made it clear that he wants to fight Gennadiy Golovkin and then he wants to rematch Dmitry Bivol in May, so we’re kind of against the clock.” added the boss of Matchroom Boxing.

“I think October, early November is realistic for Dmitry Bivol’s next fight. We are talking to World of Boxing. Obviously, he has a contract with us, so we will be planning your next fight. Whether it’s Buatsi or Ramrez, it’ll be one of those guys next.”
