Nacho Beristáin, the legendary boxing trainer from Mexico, finds it strange that Canelo Álvarez is still keen on fighting Dmitry Bivol again, despite having lost to the Russian earlier.
Last weekend, Canelo Álvarez returned to the ring to face John Ryder. Despite the fact that he took the victory, the undisputed 168-pound champion was not entirely satisfied because he could not knock out the Englishman.
On the parallel, the Mexican is already thinking about avenging his earlier setback to Dmitry Bivol and is very eager for the rematch. Despite the fact that Canelo lost to Bivol in May 2022, the Mexican is convinced that he can beat him and show that he is still the best pound for pound in the world, something that very few believe, since they consider that the redhead lives the last stage of his career.
In the meantime, Nacho Beristáin, through an interview conducted by the YouTube channel El Clinch, stated that he finds it very strange that Canelo is insisting on rematching Bivol, as he opines that his compatriot’s obsession is not normal.
Although he was reserved in expressing his feelings, Beristáin predicted that this fight could already be arranged, since he believes that one of the promoters has a lot of power in in the sport, something that at a certain point would benefit Canelo over Bivol.
Likewise, the member of the Hall of Fame commented that, despite the ‘weird’ movements that exist within boxing, he firmly believes that the sport will prevail thanks to boxers who face everyone and have true talent.
