Boxing: Bevol has the upper hand on Canelo and inflicts his second defeat

LAS VEGAS – Dmitriy Bevol checked into a specific club on Saturday night. He became the second boxer to defeat Saul Canelo Alvarez, after Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Bevol (20-0, 11 KOs) beat the Mexican by unanimous decision of the judges (115-113, 115-113, 115-113), a surprisingly tight result, and retains his WBA heavyweight middle.

“I’m the best. I keep my belt. Canelo is a great champion, and I respect him,” Bevol explained.

Both boxers had a good first round. Canelo (57-2-2, 39 KOs) hit Bevol several times in the body. For his part, Bevol gave his best response in under 30 seconds to go on the Tour thanks to a good mix.

The Mexican continued his good work in the next attack with stronger shots.

Both fighters exchanged several good combinations in the third round. Bevol first went there with a good combination that sent Canelo to telegrams, then the Mexican responded with some good attacks afterward. He also hit Bevol with a good header in the chin at the end of the next round.

Bevol served as a major clash for Canelo in subsequent engagements. In the fifth attack, the Mexican was sent into the cables before hitting the target on several occasions. The problem is that Canelo had seen many other people before Bevol. The Mexican provided a dose of arrogance by asking Bivol for more shots after receiving multiple attacks.

Bevol did it again in the seventh round – clearly at Canelo’s request – with the best attack, despite the pressure Canelo was trying to put in. Bivol finished the tour with a mix that sent Canelo to the cables. The story was not much different in the eighth attack. Bevol continued to show his superiority over Canelo in combat.

Bivol completely dominated Canelo at 11And Round with several powerful hits.

Canelo tried several attacks in the last round, but there was nothing to be done against Bevol’s strength and control.

“If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t be able to achieve great things,” Bevol said after his victory.

Canelo’s only defeat came on September 14, 2013, against Mayweather.

His undefeated streak ends at 16.

For his part, Bevol remains perfect with 20 wins in 20 career fights. He had defeated Caleb Plant, Billy Joe Saunders and Avni Yildirim in 2021.
