Canelo Alvarez has reminded fans of his electric hand speed ahead of his fight with Dmitry Bivol tonight.
Canelo will be going toe-to-toe with Bivol, who has held the WBA light-heavyweight title since 2017. It’s yet another self-assigned challenge for the Mexican, who appears intent on cementing himself as the pound-for-pound king.
