    Make it at 172, put all the belts on the line...winner takes all at 168 and 175. Winner fights whoever wins Beterbiev/Smith.

    Bivol should do that only for a huge payday. And make sure they will pay you for the first fight before you go again.

    That would be an incredible feat. If I’m Bivol, I’m asking for double what I made in the first fight, plus an additional sum if the rematch is at 168.

Judges are clearly in canelo favor in vegas compromise bigger check to equal to take home. Saudi or uae would pay 100m for such a fight. 50-55m nelo-45-50m bivol both take home 30-35m which is more than take home after tax anywhere else. Anwhere else take home is 15-20m after tax
    You cant win a weight class belt at a higher weight, it has gotta be the limit or below, not above,

    Fight should be at 175

    He shouldn’t have been mentioned 168

    He hasn’t fought at that weight and he won’t know until he’s in the ring if he he can perform at the same level.

    Wasn't he trying to prove he could beat LHWs?

    Maybe Canelo can beat Usyk after all. Just has to get him down to middleweight on a few months' notice.
    Power play, Alvarez can do these things because? He is big business for these fighters.

    They will take that risk 'And he knows it'. In some ways, I think it shows how business driven fighters are.

    I was never really bothered about Alvarez vs Bivol. But since Alvarez has been now beaten, this makes the rematch for me a big fight 'Only at 175 pounds'.

    Bivol in my opinion, needs to retract and dismiss moving down to 168 pounds to fight Alvarez 'Soon as possible'.

    It does not matter if he thinks he can make the weight. Of course Bivol can make the weight 'But he is not going to be a better fighter at 168 pounds'.

    It is a fact that none of his attributes or skills will be improved at 168 pounds, they will all decreased etc.
    And Canelo likely will be improved at 168.

    I know how the business works... but it's crazy to think he'd have to come down a division for a rematch of a fight he won.

    If Canelo wants to prove something then it only really works at 175.

    175 or 168, either way both fighters are coming prepared next time around and it will be entertaining. Canelo didn't seem as Zen as he is at 168. I think it definitely can even things out if Bivol comes to 168. Bivol should consider it seriously. Who cares about your 0, when you are getting the Canelo lottery plus a chance at fully unified in another division? Take the risk, go for the glory. Just make sure you accept crypto or something so you can get paid this time lol
