The Russian promoter of the WBA Super light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) Dmitry Bivol (20-0, 11 KOs) Andrey Ryabinsky commented on the confident victory of Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) over Joe Smith Jr. (28 -4, 22 KOs) in the fight for the unification of the WBC / WBO / IBF division titles.

Recall that on the eve of Beterbiev stopped Smith in the second round. As per order — vRING report.

“I did not expect such a quick end to the fight. I thought that the fight would drag on until the eighth or ninth round, says Ryabinsky. – But this is just my subjective opinion, and the fight showed that Artur Beterbiev is in very, very good shape. He had a great fight and confidently won. Arthur looked great in the fight.”

The functionary confirmed his interest in organizing a fight for the title of absolute division champion:

“We have an interest in organizing a fight between Beterbiev and Bivol. I do not know if it is possible to hold it in Russia, it will be quite difficult to do. We’ll see, I can’t tell you yet. But I’m sure everyone wants to see this fight. And so do we.”

“The fight Beterbiev – Bivol will not go 6 rounds.” Bradley chose a favorite.
