Canelo vs Bivol Live Stream: How to Watch Online Tonight, Map, Start Time & Free Option

Tonight, when you sit down and watch the Canelo-Bivol livestream, you will see a fighter who doesn’t understand the definition of “satisfied.” Well, maybe Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (who just weighed in at 174.4 pounds, a much better result than the weigh-ins that ruined the UFC 274 live stream) can say the word, but from where we’re sitting, he looks like a collector with a limitless closet.

That’s because Canelo, the undisputed super middleweight champion of the world, is looking at Dmitry Bivol’s WBA (super) light heavyweight championship like a kid who wants an iPhone 14 even though he already has an iPhone 13 (and every other recent Apple loading equipment).

However, Bivol is no fool. The Russian boxer comes into this fight with an undefeated record of 19-0, with 11 wins by knockout. He comes into the match as a challenge that analysts say Canelo can’t take lightly, even though only Bivol has the gold on the line.

However, all of Bivol’s title defenses were ended by unanimous decision. Canelo, on the other hand, has most recent victories ranging from a knockout over Caleb Plant last November to technical decisions by two referees (Billy Joe Saunders and Avni Yildirim) and a knockout over Sergey Kovalev.

Perhaps Canelo’s decision to challenge for the title in a different weight class answers the age-old question: “What do you get for someone who has everything?” The risk, however, is clear: a loss to Bivol will take away the shine from Canelo and make him something other than the biggest name in the game. After winning here? Canelo is going to complete the trilogy against Gennady Golovkin.
