The looked-forward-to clash between Dmitry Bivol and Malik Zinad is set to take place this weekend at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Bivol is preparing to defend his WBA and IBO light heavyweight titles in a 12-round bout against the undefeated Libyan challenger.

Bivol was originally scheduled to face Artur Beterbiev in a highly anticipated matchup for the undisputed light heavyweight championship. However, the unified champion had to pull out earlier this month after suffering a ruptured meniscus.

Consequently, the Bivol vs. Zinad fight will no longer be the headliner. Instead, the spotlight will shift to the heavyweight clash between Deontay Wilder and Zhilei Zhang, which will now serve as the main event of the Queensberry Promotions vs. Matchroom Boxing: 5 vs. 5 tournament.

The 33-year-old Russian boxer began his professional journey in November 2014, winning his first six bouts by stoppage. Following this impressive start, Bivol secured the WBA interim light heavyweight title in May 2016 by defeating Felix Valera with a unanimous decision.

In November 2017, Bivol captured the WBA light heavyweight title by defeating Trent Broadhurst. He successfully defended this title five times through 2019. In 2021, Bivol claimed the WBA super title with a victory over Craig Richards and defended it later that year against Umar Salamov.

The reigning champion continued his dominance in 2022, defending his title twice with impressive wins over undisputed middleweight titleholder Canelo Alvarez and Gilberto Ramirez. Bivol is coming off a commanding decision victory over Lyndon Arthur last December, where he successfully defended his IBO and WBA titles.


Which songs did Dmitry Bivol walk out to?

While many boxers are known for their flashy and theatrical ring walkouts, Dmitry Bivol is recognized for his understated yet serene and composed entrances.

With a flawless undefeated record of 22-0, including 11 knockout wins, the reigning WBA and IBO light heavyweight champion has made it a tradition to walk out to the rhythm of 'Gruppa Krovi (Blood Type)' by KINO Group (Группа КИНО). This iconic entrance song has been Bivol's preferred soundtrack since the early days of his career.

However, during his super fight against Canelo Alvarez in May 2022, Bivol also incorporated the iconic 1990 hit song 'Thunderstruck' by the legendary rock band AC/DC into his entrance.
