Pick It: TBRB #1 Dmitry Bivol vs. #2 Gilberto Ramirez (Saturday, DAZN, 1:30 PM EST)
31-year old WBA light heavyweight titlist Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KO) couldn’t have acquired a bigger win than a decisive outboxing of super middleweight champion Saul Alvarez. On Saturday, he has another highly regarded foe in 31-year old former super middleweight titlist Gilberto Ramirez (44-0, 30 KO). On paper it’s one of the best fights on the fall calendar and, with a win, Bivol would have a strong case for the best year of anyone in the sport in 2022. Ramirez isn’t going to go away easy and this one could be a nail biter. In support, 31-year old Jr. welterweight champion Chantelle Cameron (16-0, 8 KO) defends her crown against 38-year old undisputed welterweight champion Jessica McCaskill (12-2, 5 KO). It should be another gem in a fantastic year for women’s boxing. This is a must-watch card.
