Canelo vs Bivol tickets to go on sale, Klitschko removal request denied
Information regarding the sale of tickets for Canelo vs. Bivol is out following doubts about whether the fight would occur.
Due to the war in Ukraine, the Klitschko brothers called for Russian Dmitry Bivol’s removal from the event. This scenario is not happening as Bivol remains on the poster and sales for May 7 in Las Vegas.

Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KOs) returns to Las Vegas for his first Cinco De Mayo fight since 2019. Last time there, he defeated Daniel Jacobs at T-Mobile Arena in a Middleweight unification clash.
Since that night, the Mexican superstar has embarked on a sensational run of fights. He moved to Light Heavyweight to win a World title at the fourth weight against Sergey Kovalev.
He then returned to Super Middleweight to beat Callum Smith, Billy Joe Saunders, and Caleb Plant. Canelo became the first undisputed champion at 168lbs.
Canelo has chosen the most challenging paths for his next challenge as he attempts to become a two-time champion at 175lbs by meeting long-reigning WBA belt-holder Bivol.
The 31-year-old (19-0, 11 KOs) has been untouchable as a pro in 19 outings in the paid ranks. Canelo will be the tenth defense of his crown.
Bivol has seen off the likes of Joe Smith Jr., Jean Pascal, Sullivan Barrera, and Isaac Chilemba on his path to meeting Canelo.
