Roy Jones Jr. tells TMZ Sports he doesn’t believe Canelo Alvarez‘s loss to Dmitry Bivol will affect his star power one bit … saying the guy is “still the biggest ticket in boxing” outside of the heavyweights.
Canelo suffered just his second-ever loss on Saturday night after moving up in weight to fight Bivol … dropping the contest via a unanimous decision.
Some believe the L could hurt Canelo going forward … but, when we spoke to Jones Jr. about the result on Monday, he said he doesn’t expect it to impact the 31-year-old at all.
Can’t stop thinking about Bivol’s performance, absolute genius of a fighter🧠 Winning nearly every round, he controlled, frustrated and hurt Canelo. When was the last time someone did that to a P4P KING, making them look ordinary? Incredible 👏🏼 #boxing#CaneloBivolpic.twitter.com/whVBLUGQfu
