Beterbiev injured, fight off

WBC/IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev has been forced to pull out of his scheduled October 23 world title defense against Adam Deines due to a broken rib suffered in training. Beterbiev could possibly return sometime in December. He has been out of action since his October 2019 win over Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

  • I enjoy watching this LHW monster. Let’s hope he fully recovers to continue creating havoc in the LHW Division.

  • Interesting…Broken rib? Sparring I bet caused that injury. However, I have seen some guys pull out of fights for other reasons and use the injury issue as an excuse so the rules are in compliance for delaying fights. Personal problems can always get in the way as well. Hope all goes well.

  • Hope Beterbiev gets a good and speedy recovery! There are so many exciting fights in LHW waiting to be inked and Beterbiev is one of the most exciting to watch. I think top 20 in LHW might be the most competitive of all weight classes right now. If a boxer like Marcus Browne is ranked as number 9 you know there’s good competition out there. I would also like to see Gilberto Ramirez to step up and show that he wants to challenge the best.

  • So many of Beterbiev’s best days were lost due to a bad promoter and now another year is gone due to misfortune. He only has a couple of years left before he’s 40, I hope it all works out for the guy cause I love to watch him brawl.

  • Beterbiev is getting old. This is what happens when your an older Boxer in tough training. Except not everybody gets the luxury to postpone. When Bo James fought B-Hop he had a cracked rib but had to fight anyway.
