Dmitry Bivol recorded a stunning upset of Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night, defending his light heavyweight title with a unanimous decision in Las Vegas.
Bivol took the cards 115-113 across the board in a one-sided bout.
“I prove myself today, I’m the best (in my division),” Bivol said.
Alvarez, who was signed to face Gennadiy Golovkin for a third time on Sept. 17, said he wants an immediate rematch with Bivol.
“It doesn’t end like this,” said Alvarez. “No excuses, I lost today; he is a great boxer … I felt his power. He comes in and he goes out. He manages his distance really well.”
The loss was Alvarez’s first since 2013, when he lost to Floyd Mayweather.
