Beterbiev – Smith. Tszyu named the keys to defeating Arthur


The former undisputed super lightweight champion from Australia, who returned to his homeland in the Russian Federation after finishing profiring, Konstantin Tszyu shared his opinion about the upcoming unification bout in light heavyweight (up to 79.4 kg) between a native of Chechnya, playing under the Canadian flag Artur Beterbiev (17-0 , 17 KOs) and American Joe Smith Jr. (28-3, 22 KOs).

Recall that the fight will take place in New York on the night of June 18-19. Beterbiev will put the WBC and IBF titles on the line, and Smith the WBO belt.

“We all believe in Arthur, but what kind of fight will be depends on the preparation that both boxers have had. I believe that we will win,” said Tszyu. – Does Joe Smith have the keys to beating Beterbiev? Outsmart somehow. It will not work to kill him, but to outwit him – maybe, but also a small chance.
