Bivol’s manager said the boxer had been looking for a unification fight for two years.

Manager of a Russian boxer Dmitri Bivol Vadim Kornilov said his client had been demanding the right to participate in the struggle for unification for two years.

In early February, the Chairman of the General Directorate of Entertainment Affairs in Saudi Arabia, Turki Al al-Sheikh, announced that on June 1, a fight between Russian boxers Bivol and Artur Beterbiev would take place on the territory of the state.

“We have been waiting for this fight for quite a long time. Probably, over the past two years, Dmitry demanded a unification struggle. We are happy that this has become possible, we thank everyone who contributed to this.

– Why should Dmitry win?
