Beterbiev vs. Johnson In New York Or Chicago

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The IBF light heavyweight champion of the world, the Montrealer Russian Artur Beterbiev, will defend his title against the Scottish Callum Johnson October 6th in New York or Chicago. Johnson (17-0-0) is ranked eight contender by the IBF in the 175 pounds division.

Beterbiev (12-0-0) became IBF champion of the world November 11th in Fresno, California, in beating the German Enrico Koelling (26-2-0) by TKO in the 12th and last round.

Last year, Beterbiev tried to break his contract with the GYM Group in Montréal, but a couple of weeks ago, the civil court in Montréal forced him to return with the Yvon Michel's organization. However, the Beterbiev’s lawyer said he will contest this verdict in the Canadian Superior Court.
