Dmitry Bivol returns to action in a huge clash with Gilberto 'Zurdo' Ramirez on Saturday night

Dmitry Bivol returns tonight with a huge title fight against Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez in Abu Dhabi.

It’s six months on from the Russian’s sensational win over Canelo Alvarez, beating the pound-for-pound great via unanimous decision, and while there is talk of a rematch in 2023, the focus for now is on another Mexican.

Eddie Hearn and Matchroom had hoped to make a fight between Bivol and Joshua Buatsi before the end of the year, but that was rejected by the WBA and it was ordered that a mandatory defence must instead be made against Ramirez.
