Bivol defeated the undisputed super middleweight champion in May 2022 and now he has set himself the goal of becoming the undisputed champion at 175ibs.
That could result in a clash with Canelo but he has made it clear that he is not interested in that fight.
“I don’t care to be honest,” Bivol told IFL TV.
“I don’t want to depend on his decisions for who he wants to fight.
“I just want to fight, I want to fight for four belts.
“If I don’t get this fight, then give me another fight and I will be patient.”
The fight that Dmitry Bivol is interested in
That being said, Bivol is expected to be watching very closely on January 28 when unified champion Artur Beterbiev takes on Anthony Yarde at the OVO Arena Wembley. Bivol will be hoping to face the winner of that bout.
Canelo is still recovering from surgery on his left hand and looks eager to return to the ring next May, with talk of a fight at Wembley against Britain’s John Ryder, although nothing is yet confirmed.
