Canelo vs Bivol live stream: How to watch online, card, start time and free option
When you watch Canelo vs Bivol live stream, you’ll see a fighter who doesn’t understand the definition of “satisfied.” Well, maybe Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez can speak to that word, but from where we’re sitting, he looks like a collector with a limitless closet.

That’s because Canelo, the undisputed super-middleweight champion of the world is looking at Dmitry Bivol’s WBA (Super) light-heavyweight championship like a kid who wants an iPhone 14 even though he already has an iPhone 13 (and all of the other latest Apple hardware to boot).
That said, Bivol is no slouch. The Russian boxer comes to this match with an undefeated 19-0 record, with 11 wins by knockout. He enters the match as a challenge that analysts say Canelo can’t take slightly, even though only Bivol has gold on the line.
All of Bivol’s title defenses, though, were completed via Unanimous Decision. Canelo, on the other hand, has his most recent wins range from a TKO over Caleb Plant last November to dual referee technical decisions (Billy Joe Saunders and Avni Yıldırım) and a KO over Sergey Kovalev.
Arguably, Canelo’s decision to go for a title in a different weight division speaks to that age-old question: “what do you get someone who has everything?” The risk, though, is obvious: a loss to Bivol takes some of the shine off of Canelo, and would make him something other than the biggest name in the game. After a win here? Canelo goes to finish the trilogy against Gennady Golovkin.
