What’s Next for Beterbiev?

Most, if not all, boxing fans want Beterbiev to fight WBA champion (and fellow Russian) Dmitry Bivol.
“I want [Dmitry] Bivol,” said Beterbiev. “Right now, it’s everything. In that fight, we’ll have four belts. It’s a really good fight, I think. Bivol is a good job for me. If we can organize it, let’s do it.”

The fight would likely be a barnburner. Beterbiev has concussive power in both fists. Bivol is a sharp counterpower who’s on a roll.

Both are undefeated. I give the edge to Bivol.

Let’s get it done.
