Following an amateur record of 295-5, Artur Beterbiev became a professional boxer in 2013. He quickly rose up the ranks, winning the WBA–NABA Light-Heavyweight title from Tavoris Cloud in his sixth fight. Since then, Beterbiev (15-0) has beaten some of the top stars today in Callum Johnson and Oleksandr Gvozdyk.
The current IBF, WBC and lineal Light-Heavyweight Champion was supposed to face Meng Fanlong on march 28 in Quebec City before the coronavirus pandemic postponed it. Now, the two will have to wait to determine who the top light-heavyweight is.
Check out the above highlight reel featuring Beterbiev’s greatest moments. With things hopefully returning to normal soon, we could see more of these knockouts and wins from the 35-year-old.
