A Dmitriy Bivol v Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez fight booked a couple years ago would not have created the same lil buzz which exists today. BC, before Canelo, the Russian Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs; age 31) had a rep as a workmanlike performer, skilled, yes, but not scintillating. His handling of Canelo brought him tons of respect and a large batch of new fans.
Zurdo (44-0, 30 KOs; age 31) had a long run as a Top Rank standout. Too many competent but hardly electric scraps colored him as a fighter who’d reached his ceiling. Timing is everything— Bivol is now the Canelo killer and Zurdo re fashioned himself into a fan friendly battler after parting ways with Top Rank.
Many are thinking that the Mexican Zurdo, a full fledged 175, and a southpaw, will present a more difficult test for Bivol than that other Mexican did.
