    I'm making no comparisons between the two. Pitters is just about British level with a very limited amount of amateur and professional experience. Bivol started boxing when he was six years old, finished his amateur career with a record of 268-15, and has reigned as the WBA light-heavyweight world champion since 2017.

    Perhaps an exaggeration on my part. Top forty is fair though.

    Certainly. Like I say, every once in a while a fight like this gets put forward. Think Jennings vs Cotto, Lockett vs Pavlik, Welborn vs Hurd. Amazing opportunity for the boxer but rare that these kind of bouts ever end up competitive, even less in an upset.

    Even though he won't get paid great it is most likely it will be his highest pay day and if he were to pull off massive shock its life changing for him/family etc, its a great opportunity why not
