Dmitry Bivol vs. Sullivan Barrera - CompuBox Historical Review

By CompuBox

WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol is not just a banger, as he landed 5.5 jabs per round and 45% of his power punches. Like Kovalev, his offense is his defense, as overmatched opponents landed just 5 punches per round and just 3.3 power shots per round.

Sullivan Barrera has faced the better opposition and opponents landed 30.6% of their power shots.

Kathy Duva, CEO of Main Events - "Every single one of the fighters in our lineup for Saturday's fight has sweated through harder workouts and tougher training than ever in their careers. Many will fight at the Mecca of Boxing for the very first time. Some of them are returning, and that is a big deal, whether you're a champion, or just starting in a four rounder."

"In our televised fights, four light heavyweights know that the eyes of the world will be on them and they want to make a big impression. You will want to be part of this."

"At the top of our card we have a pair of exciting fights in the red-hot light heavyweight division, which I think is the perhaps most competitive division in this sport. First, we have Sullivan Barrera and Dmitry Bivol. In our main event, two-time Light Heavyweight World Champion Sergey Kovalev will face his tough Siberian countryman and former amateur teammate Igor Mikhalkin."
