Dmitry Bivol may feel he needs to reassert himself at the top of the light-heavyweight division. The Russian is unbeaten and has held the WBA belt at 175lbs for years.

However, there are other contenders that some believe are stronger in the division. The only way to settle that argument is to fight his fellow champions, such as Artur Beterviev - another undeffeated Russian - or Joe Smith Jr,

Perhaps the biggest marker he could lay down would be to fight Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. With the Mexican expected to only tip the scales at around 180lbs for his prospective clash with Ilunga Makabu in May 2022, a return to light heavyweight afterwards would be more than possible.
