    But you talking about skills and Gvodzyk had better skills than Beterbiev. It was not enough.

    Skills from a different fighter. Besides that fight happened years ago.

    I think the Nail is better than Bivol and yes you're right he still carried some fear into the fight and I had Gvozdzyk ahead on in the Beterbiev fight, I feel if he was able to get over that mental block he genuinely could have beaten Beterbiev

    Me too

    He got hit with too many body punches, besides his mental state, that was the main reason for me.


    I think beterbiev has a very good chance to KO Bivol with body shot.

    if Bivol carries Beterbiev like he carries Smith to 12 then its over for him,because Artur isnt Smith,Artur will put too much pressure and body shots for him to substain twelve rounds.The very first body shot just look at Bivol reaction...then the destruction began.

    Beterbiev late stoppage. I don't think Bivol could keep him off for 12 rounds.

    IMO the fight would be similar to Artur Beterbiev Vs Oleksandr Gvozdyk (Beterbiev late stoppage).
    However, as time passes, Artur Beterbiev's chances decrease, and Dmitry Bivol's chances increase.

    Sound of that right hand

    Imagine the carnage that 23 y/o Beterbiev would've inflicted in the pros

    Bivol is winning until he gets the wind knocked out of his sails and slows down. Then Beterbiev lands more frequently and really begins to hurt him.

    As a consequence he shoots up the P4P rankings, gets a mega Canelo fight and bludgeons Canelo to a TKO victory and probably retires.

    Canelo

    I could envision this actually happening. That's why I flip flop so much between who wins

    I personally think he could unify at Cruiserweight too but he'll be pushing 40 by then and there's always that chance that someone "lesser" could beat him and spoil his hard won legacy and reputation.
