    Well both potential fights (Beterbiev vs. Bivol and Canelo vs. GGG 3) now have more intrigue in my opinion. Bivol has Canelo’s name on his resume and looked dominant as ever. And although Canelo would be at home at 168 against GGG, he at least looks vulnerable now. Both fights need to happen. But on a side note I wouldn’t sleep on Joe Smith Jr. He’s a hard worker and determined fighter.

    Probably. Imagine fighting hard enough to beat top fighters, while fighting soft enough to win while looking vulnerable but still appear marketable. Um, that's a big ask.

    Canelo will probably want a rematch, but not necessarily this year and not the next fight.

    But of course, he may want it next, but it would be very late in the year. Time to rest and chill now.

    As for Bivol, he'll have to get used to his new found fame, because he just dethroned the generally regarded pound for pound star of boxing.

    I don't see how a fight between 2 Russians could ever happen in the US or how a US promoter/network could ever want to be involved. Not even Bob is that shameless.

    Maybe conman Eddie can stage it in Saudi Arabia.

    Funny that, in restrospect, Beterbiev could have been a better matchup against Canelo than Bivol was. I think Canelo could box and counter Beterbiev more easily.

    I don't think Canelo likes what he sees coming up at 168 Morel, Benavidez Charlo and Andrade are all serious challenges, plus it harder to use the size excuse if he loses to them.

    An undisputed fight certainly became much more lucrative after the Bivol win and the Beterbiev-Smith fight can raise the profile of the winner tremendously. Only way that Arum ever does the fight because he's already stated he had no interest in this fight.

    If Canelo Bivol 2 doesn't happen and Beterbiev gets its done with Smith Jnr then it will happen. Itll be huge. AS good as Crawford vs spence , Usyk vs Fury, Fury vs Joshua, Wilder vs Joshua, Canelo vs Benavidez, Josh Taylor vs Connor Benn.

    I don't think the table is set at all - Canelo money created incentive for DAZN and Top Rank to work out some sort of deal for Canelo vs the winner of Beterbiev/Smith.

    Without Canelo, I don't know that it gets done. How many fights does Beterbiev have left in his Top Rank contract?
