Today was fire. The media workout for Dmitry Bivol was hosted by Main Events and World of Boxing. The gym was blasting Led Zeppelin and beautiful people were training hard in every inch of the gym. And that is no exaggeration. This gym rules.
Soon, Dmitry Bivol and his team arrive. Dmitry, 14-0 (11 KO’s) stands 6 ft tall and is 27 years old born in Soviet Union and speaks Russian as his first language. He’s an incredible athlete at first sight. He was super cool and taking pictures with all the media. Then he did short interviews. A total professional with really good English. Next was his ring time warm up with conditioning coach Taylor Ramsdell and pads with trainer Gennady Mashianov. Watching his session was incredible. The power behind Bivol’s punches was intense at ringside. The gym got quiet for a few seconds. Boxing is a dangerous sport, times like today are a real reminder.
Dmitry will defend his WBA Light Heavyweight Champion title (since 2017) for 12 rounds against Canadian Jean Pascal 40-33 (20KO’s) . The Haitian Pascal is 36 years old.
The fight will be on HBO Boxing live form The Hardrock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City NJ November 24th 2018. Tickets range from $50 to $200 and are on sale now through HardRockHotelAtlanticCity.com and Ticketmaster.com
