Dmitry Bivol Defeats Zinad in 5VS5 Fight

Dmitry Bivol outboxed Libyan fighter Zinad and earned a routine win on Saturday night in Saudi Arabia in the 5VS5 fight.
Bivol was scheduled to face Artur Beterbiev, but Beterbiev was injured so Zinad stepped up, reported Eurosport.
Zinad won 22 professional fights and is a previous owner of the IBO and WBC Mediterranean straps at the weight.

The pair drew major attention on Tuesday night as fans approached them at the boxers’ arrival site for photos.

“I’m happy for maybe 90 or 80 percent,” Bivol told Arab News, expressing admiration for his beaten rival: “I had a good opponent who has a real warrior spirit. And thank you to him and his team and his family.”
Bivol brought his two sons with him to celebrate his victory.
“I want them to see what their father is doing because I don’t see them, a lot, in my training camp,” he said.

Chairman of the General Entertainment Authority Turki Al-Alshikh invited Bivol for another bout on Oct. 12 in Riyadh as part of Riyadh Season 2024.

“I feel that I deserve it, and I hope I will show my best, on October 12th,” Bivol told Arab News.

Few days ago, the fight boxers arrived in Riyadh to participate in the 5VS5 fight. It was held as part of the “Riyadh Season” activities at the “Kingdom Arena” in Riyadh.
