    Who takes it? It's one of the best fights to be made in years. The winner is likely is the hall of fame.

    I like Beterbeiv via decision if the fight is made in a year because Bivol won't be able to keep him off. Arthur is 37 though. Time is ticking.

    We saw what happened to Smith Jr when Beterbiev hit him, and Bivol is not invincible either.

    So, Beterbiev wins by KO.

    Bivol causes the upset.

    Subzero cannot be stopped

    I dont think Bivol would try to brawl with Artur, like Smith did. He will stick to the gameplan and he will try to outbox Beterbiev. Its a 50/50 fight imo.

    Would be an amazing fight.
    Crawford Vs Spence, Beterbeiv v Bivol and Uysk v Fury.
    That is my wishlist.
    Not quite as good as Eubank jr Vs Conor Benn but...

    I don't see a path to victory for Bivol in this fight unless Beterbiev gets old overnight. Gvozdyk was a much harder puncher than Bivol and landed numerous power shots and Beterbiev just ate them and kept on coming. Bivol's punches won't bother Artur at all, Artur will walk through everything he's got, wear him down and stop him.

    37 year old Beterbiev vs Bivol is 50/50.

    31 year old Beterbiev vs Bivol is 80/20 for Beterbiev.

    Picking Beterbiev by late knockout. They need to just make the fight right now; all these other fights being mentioned like Bivol Ramirez, Beterbiev Yarde etc should take a back seat. Make the damn fight now!

    37 isn’t the same for everyone. I don’t really see any signs of slippage from Beterbiev. If anything, his defense has improved from his younger days, while his offense remains just as effective.

    yeah I see this as highly possible.
    Hard to count Bivol out as he is super sound.

    Beterbiev looked unstoppable vs Joe smith
    In comparison to bivols performance vs Smith.

    I hope this fight pops off.
    Bivol is after a 2nd Canelo payday & he will likely get it.

    hopefully Bivol doesn’t “Marcos Mariana” his way out of boxing after he does.

    Not competitive at all. I mean it would be good to see light heavy undisputed, but it wouldn’t be good to see Bivol lose like that - I like the guy and he’s a very good boxer. Beterbiev would beat him down and knock him out. Beterbiev ended Gvozdyk - a boxer who is better than Bivol in every way. I doubt we will see Browne up and about again. Beterbiev is the sort of freak that makes other fighters realise they weren’t born with and won’t ever attain that sort of physicality. That’s gotta be next level demoralizing and demotivating for a career going forwards.

    This makes zero sense. Beterbiev hasn’t declined physically at all. So what exactly do these numbers mean? As someone else has said, Beterbiev has improved if anything.

    Bivol will outbox Beterbiev.
