“Beterbiev wants Bivol”. Arthur’s coach about the motivation of the ward


Mark Ramsey, coach of the WBC / IBF light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) Artur Beterbiev (17-0, 17 KOs), spoke about the main motivation of the ward.

According to Mark, most of all Beterbiev starts collecting champion titles, which means that if he defeats WBO champion Joe Smith (28-3, 22 KOs) in tomorrow’s fight, Arthur’s next goal will be WBA title holder Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs). ).

Recall that the Beterbiev-Smith fight will take place tomorrow early in the morning in New York (USA). Mismatch? Yes but no — preview of this fight by WMMAA.

“Arthur is not like other fighters. He’s a very, very special guy,” Ramsey said. He doesn’t fight for money. They are, of course, important, as they are for anyone else. But I mean that for him they are not in the first place.

“He is motivated by competition and never by something personal. It’s not about names at all. The point is who has the championship belt, says the coach. “Bivol has the belt now, and he wants Bivol. Of course, his first wish is Joe Smith, and tomorrow we have a big fight. Right now our focus is on Smith, but the next step is the next belt. It’s not the name that’s important, it’s the challenge.”

Meanwhile, Bivol’s promoter has stated that Dmitry is extremely interested in the winner of the Beterbiev-Smith fight.
