Saul Canelo Alvarez calmly took the defeat against Dmitry Bivolbut believes that the Russian did not widely outperform him.
“I feel very good, personally I don’t make any excuses. I think I did not lose the fight, he won me 4, 5 rounds maximum”, said Canelo Álvarez after the fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
“The last few rounds I got a little tired, but I feel good, I did things the way I should have done them. Maybe because of the weight I didn’t feel 100 percent.”
What’s next for El Canelo Álvarez?
This it was the second defeat of Saúl Álvarez in his career and it happened before a Bivol that took advantage of its greater weight, as they fought in the Semi-complete category.

“We have to think about what we are going to do. I am looking for the difficult fights, to gain weight, not where I am comfortable. I gain weight to seek more challenges and this is how it is, this is boxing. This is what I am looking for, greatness.”
Canelo clarified that “this does not stay like this”, so he will surely seek a rematch against Bivol, although there is no date yet.
“I am a very competitive person, this does not stay like this, I have many years ahead of me and I am going to come back very strong.”
