Dmitry Bivol is prepared to be able to safeguard his legacy in boxing to discuss a ring with anyone.
Bivol sets his WBASuper globe light-heavyweight name against Lenin Castillo around the undercard to the heavyweight introduction in Chicago of Oleksandr Usyk on Sunday at 2am, live on Sky Sports Action.
The Russian (16-0, KOs 11), that makes the sixth defence of his own belt against the heavy-handed Dominican, currently has one eye on his fellow 175lbs champions with all three in action in the area of one month.
Artur Beterbiev and IBF and WBC kings Oleksandr Gvozdyk meet in a unification struggle in Philadelphia following weekend prior to WBO ruler Sergey Kovalev faces Mexican celebrity Canelo Alvarez in Las Vegas on November 2.
I need to make my mark in boxing history and to do this you have to resist the best, explained Bivol.
Im thankful that my team have found for me good fighters to struggle, naturally I wish to fight against another winners but occasionally you cannot do it since they are occupied, but we have had great struggles and I am satisfied with that.
The battle next weekend is an excellent one and Id really like to deal with the winner between Gvozdyk and Beterbiev, well learn more about my future after that fight. I dont know who wins that fight, I dont like to create predictions! But it is a fight that is very good and I am looking ahead.
Of course, the Kovalev fight could occur because we are in the exact identical division. I am ready to fight anybody, although I dont understand what is going to take place with Canelo in his fight.
Its an intriguing fight, it is a major challenge for both; Kovalev is among the very best at 175lbs and is the larger man, however Canelo is a great fighter, he is younger and he is strong too, nobody knows whats going to happen, we just need to wait and watch.
Canelo? Of course! Its a battle for me. Im taller than himI have enough experience and good boxing skills to box with a man like him. Though he was it would be difficult to talk about but hes coming from two divisions below why not, hes among the greatest men from middleweight, hes not a heavyweight? 168lbs can be also made by me. I have talked about this several times because Im not a huge man so that I could make super-middleweight to get a big fight.
The clash with Castillo of bivol is a part of a enormous night of action at Chicago composed by the debut of Usyk, while Chicagos Jessica McCaskill defends her WBA and WBC planet super-lightweight titles.
