Bivol reacted to Benavides' threats

Dmitry Bivol, the WBA light heavyweight champion of the world, reacted to threats against him by the undefeated David Benavides.

"I heard something like that. Honestly, I haven't seen those interviews. But I respect him as a boxer. He's a really great fighter. If he wants to fight me and Beterbiev, it means he's a good boxer, he's confident and wants to achieve a lot. Yes, we had a couple of sparring sessions, I did some things, he did some things. But it's just sparring," Bivol said in an interview with Fight Hub TV.
