Ramirez has distinct advantages physically. He’ll be the taller fighter in the ring, which can pay off if he can use this advantage. It’s Bivol, but Bivol is more likely to work from the jab. As the Alvarez fight proved, Bivol stays very disciplined in his defense, which allows him to make a lot of effort with attacks.
Sometimes, Ramirez gets loose in his combos and leaves his face exposed. Bivol will try to take advantage of the moments when Ramirez allows his hands to run in his signature combos to take advantage of the defensive weaknesses.
Ramirez could win this bout. Do not be put off by his credentials; he’s demonstrated he can take on any opponent in the world. And the fact that he’s durable means that Bivol will likely not end. Bivol’s consistent performance could be too much for him here.
