    Imo it's FOTY !! Dare to debate. How do you see the fight playing out? I don't think Bivol can hold Artur off for 12 rounds... it's a different kind of pressure.

    Yes, please.

    I fancy Bivol does well early and wilts down the line. Beterbiev manages to apply a deadly educated pressure. At the moment I think he crumples Bivol up late.

    If I were Bivol's manager I'd make a big song and dance about how Beterbiev is ducking my boy while actually doing everything to push the bout out a few more years and ageing Artur out. If Beterbiev's feet get heavy, Bivol will win wide.

    Canelo wins the first 4 rounds, Bivol wins 3, and Beterbiev wins the remaining 5.

    My money is on Beterbiev, after hearing that and how Bivol is talking about Beterbiev.

    Same thing was with Gvozdyk, who was KO'ed in 10 rounds, Bivol may be smarter, so he can go more rounds.

    first early rounds to Bivol then the constant pressure will get through Bivol and eventually crumble,
    can someone made RBR to this match before it happen?

    Going with Bivol by decision. I think his fast feet and great defense and beterbievs relatively slow handspeed will allow him to outbox beterbiev to a decision win. Won't hurt Artur but will land more.

    Did you guys hear the thudding sounds of Beterbievs punches on Smith's shoulders, head and guard? Sounded downright gruesome. Made me shudder. The human body is not designed for that type of punishment.

    Bivol is good, but he doesn't have the power or workrate to slow up Beterbiev. Beterbiev will go right through him and finish him in the later rounds imo. I also don't think Bivol's chin is rock solid, I think Beterbiev's hard punches will take him down.

    I think if Gvozdzyk and Beterbiev fight 100 times, they both win 50 times.

    I don't think so, Gvodzyk had amateur trauma, after Beterbiev KO'ed him.

    I saw how he was talking about him before the fight, he was afraid of him, his power and his mentality.

    Gvodzyk is the guy who had better amateur career than Bivol, more power and more experience. What Bivol has is his cold head and good coach who can prepare him. but would it be enough ? I don't think so. Bivol is speaking just like Gvodzyk before their fight.

    Beterbiev is a dangerous puncher no doubt, and hed probably be favored to win but Bivol is the better skilled fighter and has the skills to box Beters head off. Im picking Bivol by decision.

    Sadly I don't think this fight isn't getting made anytime soon and obviously Beterbiev is already 37 y/o. E-Hearn said Bivol might have to fight Zurdo, Buatsi and then Clenelo

    Can Beterbiev hurt or knockout Bivol who is a small LHW? Of course he can. He can knockout any LHW and even probably most CWs. But Bivol is one of the best defensive boxers in the sport and he's fleet of hand and foot with excellent distance control and reflexes and it will all hinge on him not getting caught too often. But I don't think he can hold Beterbiev off of him for 12 rounds though

    That's what people were saying before Beterbiev vs Gvodzyk fight. more skilled and better at almost everything, other than power. But he got Ko'ed.

    Beterbiev has very underrated body punches.
