After 7.. Canelo looking tired, though throwing heavier shots Bivol taking it and looking fresher and more busy...

Was a really good fight, I thought.

Canelo tried giving him the Callum Smith treatment, but it didn't work, and Bivol knew what he was doing.

Super impressive performance, and can't see Canelo being able to do much in the rematch.

Think he gassed in the last 1/3, as he was throwing so many big shots trying to really put dents in him.

Bivol turned out to be too tough, and just ate it all up.

I'm confused with what we witnessed here.. Looked like age or a lack of training because of the breaks he was taking during the rounds... Bivols defence was super tight all fight, occasionally going on the offensive but mostly

retreating but always busy... Both 31 (i think) but Bivol looked much the younger and fitter..

Canelo's saying rematch but personally I'm doubting the wisdom of that.. Triple G is waiting for the third, which probably generates much more $$$$.

It was a horrible loss for a great champion... Maybe he should put it right or maybe Time catches up with them all in the end.

he's the most overrated boxer on the planet, pound for pound number 1 is laughable, how can that be when he's lost all the hardest fights he's had, lost to Mayweather, lost the first fight to GGG regardless of whatever the 3 judges said, to give you an idea of the biasm, one had a draw , one had him by 2 rounds the other had him winning by 8 rounds, 2nd fight more of a draw, beat old Mosley, washed up Kovalev and wasn't stand out v Saunders, stalked him throughout and caught him, now lost his 3rd big fight in a division he shouldn't be in anyway. Judges desperate to make a case for him last night, gave him first 4 rounds, Bivol dominated from start to end yey won by only 2 rounds, they only started to give Bivol more rounds as it went on as if they gave Canelo any more they'd all be done for blatant corruption. Jabbing is a defence mechanism yet Alvarez tried to adopt the simple tactic as he did v Smith, punch the arm as hard as possible, when he wasn't doing anything with his jab it gave license for Bivol to come in more and be the aggressor, which incidentally goes down well in close fights with legit judges. And Canelo thinks he'd beat Usyk, no chance.

Has as much chance of beating Usyk as Usyk has of beating Fury.. Laugh   We all have opinions...
