Former two division undisputed world champion Evander Holyfield is really looking forward to a potential showdown between undefeated light heavyweight champions Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev.

Beterbiev holds the WBC, IBF, WBO world titles at 175, while Bivol is the WBA's champion.

"Bivol vs. Beterbiev is one of the most anticipated fights in the whole world. I think this fight will be exciting. It is important that everything is resolved in order to organize this fight," Holyfield said.

In 2022, Bivol ran away with Fighter of The Year honors - with a stunning upset win in May, when he picked up a twelve round unanimous decision over Mexican superstar Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez.

Bivol then came back in the fall, with a dominating twelve round decision over mandatory challenger Gilberto Ramirez.

The Russian boxer's next fight has not been determined, but a rematch with Canelo is a possibility for the month of May.

Beterbiev saw action once last year, when he picked up a knockout win over Joe Smith to unify the WBO, WBC, IBF world titles.

He is scheduled to return to the ring on January 28 in the UK, in a mandatory fight against British puncher Anthony Yarde.

One of the biggest sticking points in making a Bivol vs. Beterbiev unification are their respective network affiliations. Bivol is co-promoted by Eddie Hearn's Matchroom Boxing, who have an exclusive content deal with streaming service DAZN. And Beterbiev is promoted by Top Rank, who have an exclusive content deal with ESPN. Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, has stated in several interviews that that a Bivol-Beterbiev showdown would have to be aired on ESPN.
