The most of the damage done by Alvarez was to Bivol's left shoulder and arm, which he held strong behind his high guard.
"I was in fantastic spirits. This was the most important battle of my career, and I thoroughly loved it. It gave me more energy when they booed me."
"Another match?" No worries. Let's discuss a rematch," Bivol suggested. "I chose this battle because I wanted the chance, and I appreciate the chance."
