WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol is very much interested in a fight against Mexican superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, who currently holds the WBC, WBA super middleweight belts.
Bivol has no problem with dropping down in weight for the fight. He doesn't see any issues with making the super middleweight limit.
"Of course I would like to fight him at light heavyweight or super middleweight because I want to fight the best guys, and he is one of the best," Bivol said to Sky Sports.
"He has his own legacy. He is a man like me, with good sides and bad sides. When I go to the ring I believe only in my victory."
Bivol is back in the ring on Saturday night, when he makes a voluntary defense against Craig 'Spider' Richards as part of the pay-per-view undercard to the heavyweight clash between Derek Chisora and Joseph Parker.
Canelo is back next Saturday night, when he faces WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders in a three belt unification at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Should he win, Canelo would then try to finalize a full division unification with IBF champion Caleb Plant in September.
One of the biggest fights for Bivol at 175-pounds, is a showdown with WBC, IBF champion Artur Beterbiev.
Beterbiev is being lined up for a unification with newly crowned WBO champion Joe Smith.
"He has a belt. I think about fighting him or the other guys with a belt," Bivol said.
"I understand that he works with Top Rank and they have a plan for him. But I would like to fight. My first goal is to be undisputed champion. To have four belts and to have a legacy. I want to be the best light heavyweight so I need to have all four belts."
