Boxing: Is Canelo’s revenge coming? Zurdo Ramirez confirms negotiations with Dmitry Bivol

The World Boxing Organization (WBO) super middleweight champion, Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez, confirmed Monday that his team is already negotiating with the Russian, Dmitry Bivol, to agree on a fight between the two. “He only needs to sign,” said the native of Mazatlan, Mexico.

Ramirez has long expressed his desire to move up to semi-complete weight to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) version title held by Bivol and that he could not get in his most recent attempt, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

Canelo will fight Golovkin

In addition, this fight gave the Sinaloan the possibility of facing Bivol before “Canelo” himself, who had also requested it, but must first fulfill the commitment of the third fight against Gennady Golovkin, agreed for September.

“The negotiations are already in place. It’s just a matter of him wanting to and signing the contract. That’s the fight everyone wants to see, the fight we all want. I believe that in a week everything will look good,” said “Zurdo” to izquierdazo.com.

When will the fight take place?

“That’s right, 100% the fight is going to happen. I’m excited, I would like it to be at the end of September, in the patriotic (Mexican) month”, said Ramirez.

In fact, Bivol’s victory over “Canelo” was the one that opened the opportunity for “Zurdo”, who immediately raised his hand to take “revenge” for Mexico, since he also has a much more natural size to fight against a natural semi-complete, which was one of the problems faced by the champion from Guadalajara in his fight in May.

The date the Mexican is looking for would be September, so that the “rematch for Mexico” would coincide with the patriotic month.

Gilberto Ramirez has a record of 44-0, with 30 knockouts, while Dmitry Bivol, on the other hand, has a record of 20-0, with 11 wins by knockout.

Zurdo” Ramirez’s challenge to Bivol

In his most recent bout, Ramirez comfortably defeated German Dominic Boesel by technical knockout in four episodes on May 14 to become a challenger for the WBA semi-complete world title.

At that moment, Ramirez took the opportunity to challenge the Russian, warning him that the championship he holds will soon change hands, because he is capable of defeating him and taking away his undefeated record.

The next time he signs a contract, because he knows that belt is mine, everyone knows that I deserve that fight and I will be victorious for that title.
