Two huge bouts have been added to the undercard of Canelo Alvarez vs Dmitry Bivol undercard in the form of Montana Love vs Gabriel Valenzuela & Filip Hrgovic vs Zhang Zhilei.
Love picked up momentum last year as he knocked out Ivan Baranchyk and Carlos Diaz. Now, he is on a three-fight knockout streak which is the longest of his career.
On the other hand, Valenzuela upset Robbie Davies Jr in February last year. He accepted that Love is a tough opponent but on May 7, he would come with everything he has to face him.
Filip Hrgovic’s bout against Zhilei will be his opportunity to get in the title picture. If he manages to win, then he will likely get a shot at the IBF World title. Hrgovic accepted that Zhang is a good boxer but he thinks that he is too slow on his feet.
Meanwhile, Zhang Zhilei is also thrilled about this bout. He said that he has been waiting for this opportunity, and now that it is finally here, he wouldn’t let it pass.
Now, on May 7, fans will get to see three top-notch boxing bouts including the main event fight between Canelo and Bivol.
