Is Joshua Buatsi ready for Dmitry Bivol next?


We ask the Boxing Information panel no matter whether Joshua Buatsi is all set for top gentle-heavyweight Dmitry Bivol future

Paul Edwards
Prime coach

I would say so, he’s completely ready for him. Could he beat him? I do not know. I feel it is 60-40 Bivol. But I reckon Buatsi will move up the improved the opposition. I truly level Craig Richards, I assume he’s a fantastic fighter. I assume he’s planet course.

Paul Smith
Former British winner

I never assume Buatsi is completely ready for Bivol just but. Perhaps a couple a lot more exams and he ideally will be. I rate him. His jab has come on a lot and his coronary heart was in no way in question. He was using a few of unnecessary photographs and so I would counsel a few far more before wanting at Bivol, like fights with Callum Johnson, Yarde, Arthur etcetera.

Paul All set
Boxing manager

I consider the time is now for Buatsi to go and challenge Bivol. Richards was a great yardstick not just simply because he’d boxed Bivol formerly. Josh ticked all the boxes, had his chin checked, had to dig deep and I considered he floor out an 8-4 victory.

Andy Clarke
Boxing commentator

He’s prepared sufficient. He’d be the underdog but if you wait for the ideal time and ailments to obstacle for a title belt then you could find your self waiting around without end. Now is the time and whatever the outcome I’d be assured he’d demonstrate he belongs at that level.
