Bivol plans to box in Saudi Arabia

Dmitry Bivol, the WBA light heavyweight champion of the world, has announced that he will fight his next bouts in Saudi Arabia.

"It's great, it's cool. That there's competition like this. It's good for the boxing industry. I have a contract with Saudi Arabia. I'll most likely box here. There are certain agreements. And I try not to depart from them mentally, to think realistically within the framework of what I signed with Saudi Arabia".

Bivol is scheduled to fight against Malik Zinad on June 1.
