Will Canelo Alvarez’s Scheduled Las Vegas Fight Take Place?

Last week, it was announced that Canelo Alvarez’s next fight would be against Dmitry Bivol on May 7th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The operative word here is “would.” Mr. Bivol is Russian, and with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, it will be interesting to see if this fight does come off.

The bout, assuming it takes place, would be for Bivol’s WBA Light heavyweight belt. Already the current undisputed super middleweight champion, Mr. Alvarez would be going up in weight class for this fight.

The fight is slated to be broadcast on DAZN pay per-view. We shall see what happens.
