When a seemingly unbeatable fighter finally loses, it’s difficult to comprehend.
That’s why those boxing people on social media expressed shock after Dmitry Bivol defeated Canelo Alvarez by a unanimous decision Saturday in Las Vegas.
Here’s a sampling of tweets.

Dmitry Bivol after beating Canelo Alvarez: "Eddie Hearn, sorry I broke your plans with Gennady Golovkin."
Canelo vs GGG III was agreed for Sept 17th before this result happened.

Terrific interview by Canelo. Didn't blame heavy suits, pushing or dodgy gloves. How refreshing that an elite-level fighter can take an "L" #CaneloBivol

Yea… I’m a Canelo fan, but we can put that Canelo-Usyk talk to rest, for good… pic.twitter.com/ds1es4IkDA

Weight classes matter. Size matters. Maybe cleaning up 160 and 168 was more advisable than moving to 175 against a relatively unknown, very talented. fighter. And shame on every hater who suggested that Canelo avoids challenges. And it pisses me off that Putin celebrates. #boxing
