“No excuses, I lost today; he’s a great boxer,” Álvarez said after the loss, via ESPN. “I felt his power. He goes in and he goes out. He manages his distance very well.

“I don’t feel like I lost the fight. … Personally, I feel like he only won four or five rounds. … We want the rematch, and we will do better in the rematch.”

Bivol, who won 115-113 on all three scorecards, said he had “no problem” with the idea of ​​a second fight with Álvarez.
