Konstantin Tszyu commented on Beterbiev’s victory over Smith


Ex-absolute super lightweight champion Konstantin Tszyu commented on the unification fight for the WBC / WBO / IBF light heavyweight titles (up to 79.4 kg) between Canadian citizen Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) and American Joe Smith – junior (28-4, 22 KOs).

Recall that last night in New York (USA) Beterbiev stopped Smith in just two rounds. Beterbiev – Smith. As per order — report from WMMAA.

“This is not a quick fight, this is preparation for several months,” Tszyu emphasized. – What happens in the ring is not considered, this is an exam. First of all, I would like to congratulate Arturchik, I am very happy for him. I just smashed a very strong opponent. Proves once again that boxing is a striking sport, and if there is no striking technique, then you have much less chances. We do not know the tactics, the strategy of the headquarters, he did everything competently, unmistakably.
