, ‘It will give him issues’ – Sergio Mora predicts Canelo Alvarez will struggle to deal with Dmitry Bivol’s jab

FORMER boxing world champion Sergio Mora believes Dmitry Bivol will cause Canelo Alvarez issues but says he will have to be special to beat the Mexican.

Alvarez, 31, has not lost since he fought all-time great Floyd Mayweather in 2013.

The pair are set to fight on May 7

Canelo Alvarez is aiming to add the super light-heavyweight belt to his collection

And although WBA Super light-heavyweight champion Bivol is unbeaten in his professional career he has just 19 fights under his belt compared to Alvarez’s 60.

Mora expects Bivol’s jab to trouble Alvarez however, but suggests the Russian will have to show a whole lot more to win the fight.

Mora told Fighthype: “He’s going to have to be special because Bivol is going to have to get out of character in order to beat Canelo.

“That jab [from Bivol] is going to give him issues, and the power and size is going to give Canelo issues. But it’s not going to be enough to win.

“Caleb Plant gave Canelo some issues with the jab, some issues with the movement.

“But he didn’t have the experience, size, or the power to do anything else, and ultimately, he got knocked out in the 11th.

“[Sergey] Kovalev had the size but didn’t have the commitment and got knocked out in the 11th.

“I think Bivol might be in the same boat. He’s going to have to show up and show out.”

Alvarez dispatched Plant quite easily to unify the division in November 2021 and he is now seeking yet another belt to add to his collection.

If he wins the WBA super light heavyweight title there will not be much left for Alvarez to accomplish in boxing so he could give in and grant Kamaru Usman’s wish to fight him.
