Beterbiev Forced To Postpone
His Next Bout Due To COVID


By Daniel Cloutier


MONTRÉAL - The Montrealer Russian Artur Beterbiev, the WBC and IBF light heavyweight (175 pounds) champion of the world, is obliged to postpone his next bout, scheduled for January 30th in Moscow.

Beterbiev (15-0-0) was supposed to fight the German Adam Deines (19-1-1) but was informed Monday evening that he was suffering of the Coronavirus.

Beterbiev will be obliged to take a rest and stay in home for several weeks. “It’s very sad, but I will be forced to take a rest before getting back in action,” said Beterbiev. “I am so impatient to be back in the ring.”

This fight Beterbiev-Deines should be postponed until the beginning of the spring.

Beterbiev did not fight since October 2019, since his significant win by TKO in the 10th round in Philadelphia against the Ukrainian Aleksandr Gvozdyk who suffered that night his first loss in pro boxing (17-1-0).
