What’s Next for Beterbiev?

Most, if not all, boxing fans want Beterbiev to fight WBA champion (and fellow Russian) Dmitry Bivol.
โ€œI want [Dmitry] Bivol,โ€ said Beterbiev. โ€œRight now, itโ€™s everything. In that fight, weโ€™ll have four belts. Itโ€™s a really good fight, I think. Bivol is a good job for me. If we can organize it, letโ€™s do it.โ€

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

Both are undefeated. I give the edge to Bivol.

Letโ€™s get it done.
