Before Sergey ‘Krusher’ Kovalev hit the ring in Madison Square Garden to continue his quest to take back over the light-heavyweight division, Dmitry Bivol, another Russian fighter will be putting his WBA light-heavyweight title on the line against the always dangerous Sullivan Barrera.
Like Kovalev, Bivol is considered by a lot of boxing experts as a light-heavyweight fighter who can take over the light-heavyweight division. Heck, there were some who even said that Bivol was the reason Andre ‘S.O.G.’ Ward retired from Boxing. Not sure about that case, but Bivol is definitely a fighter on the come up, and the boxing world needs to keep an eye on this great up and coming fighter.
Sullivan Barrera is a tough Cuban light-heavyweight who is also hungry for super-stardom. He only has 1 loss on his professional boxing record and that was to the former #1 Pound 4 Pound Fighter in the sport Andre ‘S.O.G.’ Ward. With that said, Bivol better bring his A game on March 3, 2018, or he can get it from Barrera.
March 3, 2018, will mark another great night in Boxing as HBO and Showtime are hosting live fights in “The Big Apple!” Can Sullivan Barrera upset the applecart that is Dmitry Bivol? Cannot wait to see this great fight! Check out the Tale of the Tape for the Dmitry Bivol vs. Sullivan Barrera WBA light-heavyweight fight.
