Usyk vs Witherspoon: Dmitry Bivol targets unification fights ahead of light-heavyweight title defence

Dmitry Bivol is prepared to be able to secure his legacy in 18, to discuss a ring.
Bivol sets his WBASuper world light-heavyweight title against Lenin Castillo on the undercard to Oleksandr Usyks heavyweight introduction in Chicago on Sunday at 2am, live on Sky Sports Action.
The Russian (16-0, KOs 11), who gets the sixth defence of his belt against the heavy-handed Dominican, currently has one eye on his fellow 175lbs champions with all three in actions in the area of a month.
Artur Beterbiev along with WBC and IBF championships Oleksandr Gvozdyk meet at a unification battle in Philadelphia following weekend until WBO ruler Sergey Kovalev faces Mexican pound-for-pound star Canelo Alvarez at Las Vegas on November 2.

I wish to make my mark in history to do this you need to resist the best, said Bivol.
Im grateful that my staff have found for me great fighters to struggle, of course I wish to fight against the other winners but occasionally you cannot do it since theyre active, but we have had good struggles and I am pleased with that.
The fight next weekend is a great one and I would like to face the winner between Gvozdyk and Beterbiev, well learn more about my future then struggle. I dont know who wins that fight, I do not like to make predictions! But its a very good fight and Im looking ahead.
Obviously, the Kovalev fight could happen because we are in exactly the same division. I really dont know whats going to occur Canelo in his fight, but I am ready to fight anyone at light-heavyweight.
It is an interesting fight, it is a big challenge for both; Kovalev is among the best at 175lbs and can be the bigger man, however Canelo is a superb fighter, he is younger and he is strong also, nobody knows what will happen, we just have to wait and see.
Canelo? Obviously! It is a fantastic fight for me. Im taller than him, I have sufficient expertise and good boxing skills to box a man. If he was it would be hard to talk about but hes coming out of two divisions below why not he is among the greatest men from middleweight, hes not a heavyweight? 168lbs can be also made by me. I have talked about this several times because Im not a big man so I could make super-middleweight to get a huge fight.
Bivols conflict with Castillo is part of a huge night of action at Chicago while Chicagos Jessica McCaskill defends her WBA and WBC planet super-lightweight titles composed by Usyks debut.
