Dmitry Bivol defends his WBA light heavyweight title against the hard-hitting Gilberto 'Zurdo' Ramirez on Saturday night. 

This will be Bivol's first fight since beating Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez in May and he faces an opponent in Ramirez who is looking to become a two-weight world champion. 

Ramirez has been a destructive force since moving up to 175lbs with four of his wins in this weight division coming by way of knockout, but Bivol will be his toughest test yet. 

The defending WBA champion is one of the world's most talented fighters and will have his sights set on an undisputed light heavyweight title showdown against Artur Beterbiev if he can get past Ramirez.
