Who would take this?
100% backing Bivol
Hill wins by UD.
It would be a jab-fest very close decision either way but I'll give the edge to Hill.
CLOSE is all I can say.
Hill has a slightly great chance of winning the decision, but Bivol has a greater chance of winning via KO. Can we see more of Bivol vs good boxers his size?
Considering Hill was only stopped twice in about 60 fights going all the way up to Cruiserweight, I find your prediction about Bivol having a better chance of winning by KO puzzling. Especially since Bivol has not had a KO in several years.
Same here. Highly tactical bout
If Hearns could beat him, then so could Bivol. Hill was a sound conventional boxer but that is all he had.
Bivol despite being similar is a tricker fighter
Don't confuse his prefer boxing style with power. Bivol can hit hard for a light heavyweight. Hill could not and really didn't test his chin vs known punchers by beating them. If there is a KO in the fantasy match I like Bivol to get in. No word twisting here or one can say that Bivol who was KO'd easily by a body shot at 176 pounds from Roy Jones has iron chin. He lost to power punching DM via decision as well.
Hill was a light punching light heavyweight. That is what I'm saying.
Bivol is 31 years old. He has only 11 KOs in the professional ranks. Mostly against underwhelming opposition. He hasn't has a KO in 4 1/2 years! Rationalize all you like, but, those are the facts.
Yes and I stand on what I said. He hits harder than Hill does... by a mile. You right, as I said his career isn't nearly over yet.
I doubt there would be a KO, Hill lacked power but was very durable
