Dimitry Bivol locked in his vote for fighter of the year after unanimously defeating the undefeated Zurdo Ramirez. 2 judges gave Bivol 117-111 and the other 118-110.
Bivol was just too fast in the exchanges and for the most part was on the attack. Ramirez was in the fight yet couldn’t win the rounds. It was a competitive physical chess match. Ramirez just couldn’t find the gear to March forward and pressure the smaller fighter like Bivol did this past 5 de Mayo vs Super middleweight undisputed Saul Canelo Alvarez. Next up Artur Beterbiev for the undisputed light heavyweight crown.
