    Default Bivol vs. Smith Jr

    Dmitry Bivol will look to make the fifth defense of his WBA light heavyweight title when he steps into the ring to face Joe Smith Jr. on March 9 at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona New York, live and exclusively on DAZN.

    Last time out, Bivol dominated former unified champion Jean Pascal in New Jersey with a unanimous decision victory on Nov. 24. Meanwhile, Smith is coming off dropping Melvin Russell in the first round to win via knockout when the pair fought in Connecticut on June 30.

    Both boxers can't wait for the fight.

    “I am glad to finally meet Joe in the ring,” said Bivol in a Matchroom Boxing press release statement. “I saw his fights against [Andrzej] Fonfara and [Bernard] Hopkins live and always wanted to test my skills against him. Thank you to World of Boxing, Matchroom Boxing USA and DAZN — I hope to put [on] a great performance for everybody!

    Added Bivol's manager Vadim Kornilov: “Bivol was supposed to fight Joe back in November. It's a very exciting fight. Both Dmitry and Joe have a lot of power. I guess this fight was meant to happen and we look forward to building a relationship with Eddie Hearn and DAZN."



    Smith, who's most known for knocking Hopkins out of the ring during what turned out to be the legend's last pro fight, will be looking to hand Bivol his first loss.

    “I am very excited for the opportunity to fight Bivol for the world championship,” Smith said. “Everything I’ve worked for in and out of the gym was to better myself and become a world champion. All the hard work and my determination will pay off come fight night.”

    ‘Mighty Mo’ Maurice Hooker will also be in action on the night when he defends his WBO super lightweight title against Mikkel Lespierre in the co-main event.

    When is the Bivol vs. Smith fight?
    Dmitry Bivol vs. Joe Smith Jr. will take place Saturday, March. 9. The undercard is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET. followed by the main card at 9 p.m.

    Good fight. I would have preferred Beterbiev vs. Smith but this should be entertaining as well. Smith has a huge punch n heart but will most likely be outboxed by Bivol. I’ll be rooting for Smith though.

    Beterbiev is a beast and I will want him to win to then unify some of the belts.

    Dunno what it , but tonight I am disagreeing with everything you post. If Beterbiev and Bivol ever fight each other, I would have a friendly little bet with you that Bivol beats him.

    What do you mean tonight? You disagree with me most nights.

    I like Bivol too but I like to bet against you even more.

    I’m sure that Bivol wins pretty easy. Smith is a tough fighter, but Bivol is too good technically. Barrera best Smith every round almost. I know that Smith broke his jaw early in the fight, but he just isn’t that good. He got fortunate against Fonfara who wasn’t that good in the first place and then got a very fortunate shot at Hopkins.

    I think Bivol stops him late.

    Not sure why Smith has eased up on staying active after retiring..for good it feels ..a HOF'er. He showed brass fighting with a busted jaw vs Barrera and it'll be interesting to see his approach with Bivol. Bivol isn't exactly mashing the gas in fights he dominates and like to see Smith go with his best shot and force a fight early on. I can't see him having a shot trying to box Bivol, roll your dice Joe.

    If this card shows one thing it's that promoters can work together even if on a smaller scale. 5 separate groups putting in here now if only they could follow suit with major showdowns .

    A very talented prospect fights tonight on this card. Israil Madrimov is going for a belt in only his second pro fight.

    Good old Israelite Madrimov splatted the 25-2 rojas he was unconcious for quite some time after that... only the second fight for the Uzbek. .. rojas record IS quite amusing to look through, 25-2 sounds great until you see who he's beaten.
