Artur Beterbiev and his future

beterbiev63By Sebastian Mora: First of all, I will start by saying that I though Gabriel Campillo was going to atleast give Artur Beterbiev a solid 7 or 8 rounds. Gabriel Campillo is a fighter that lost a split decision to Beibut Shumenov (Boxer Hopkins got huge credit for beating) which many people thought could have gone either way.  

After that, he went on to fight and BEAT Karo Murat, (Another boxer Hopkins got huge credit for beating) although it was a split draw, anybody that watches that fight knows that it was mostly a hometown decision. No disrespect to Karo Murat of course.

Beterbiev defeats Campillo in impressive performance

beterbiev5By Allan Fox: #7 WBC, #12 WBA, #13 IBF, #13 WBO light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (8-0, 8 KOs) proved that he’s ready for a world title shot today with a fourth round knockout victory over ring veteran Gabriel Campillo (25-7-1, 12 KOs). Beterbiev, 30, knocked Campillo out with a right-left combination in the 4th round that left Campillo flat on his back and seemingly out cold for a moment.

The fight was stopped at 2:22 of the 4th round by referee Marlon Wright on Saturday at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. What’s interesting about the knockout is that Beterbiev had Campillo out on his feet after hurting him with a big right hand to the head in the 4th.

Prediction: Beterbiev will KO Campillo within six rounds

beterbiev67By Bob Smith: Tonight, undefeated light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will be facing Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 12 KOs) at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Campillo is a good fighter, but no match for Beterbiev, who in my opinion, in a year or two, will be a peer or superior even when compared to Sergey Kovalev.

Despite the fact that Campillo has won his three most recent fights, he simply will have no answer for the power and skill in cutting off the ring of Beterbiev.

Beterbiev wants Kovalev fight, not worried about Campillo fight

press conference-0003 - Artur Beterbiev(Credit: Amanda Kwok / PBC on CBS) By Allan Fox: This Saturday night unbeaten #11 WBA light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will be fighting 36-year-old former WBA cruiserweight champion Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 12 KOs) in a 12 round bout on the undercard of the Adonis Stevenson vs. Sakio Bika fight at the Pepsi Coliseum, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

Beterbiev isn’t worried at all about the Campillo fight. He sees it as a bout that he’ll definitely win. The bout that he wants is against IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev.

Beterbiev: I will beat Sergey Kovalev again

beterbiev67By Allan Fox: #11 WBA Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) can’t wait until he gets another fight against IBF/WBA/WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev. Beterbiev defeated Kovalev while the two of them fought in the amateur ranks years ago, and Beterbiev feels he’ll be able to do it again no problem when the time comes for him to get a title shot.

As of now, Beterbiev is still climbing the ranks, and it might be a while before he’s ranked high enough to get a title shot against the hard hitting Kovalev.

Artur Beterbiev vs. Gabriel Campillo on April 4th in Quebec

beterbiev67By Dan Ambrose: Undefeated #11 WBA, #15 WBO light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will be facing former WBa 175lb champion Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 12 KOs) on April 4th on the Adonis Stevenson card in Quebec, Canada, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN.

This is a decent test for the 30-year-old Beterbiev, a Russian Olympian from the 2012 Olympics. However, this isn’t as big a deal as some boxing fans might think it is because Campillo is now 36-years-old and not the fighter he was back in 2009 when he briefly held the WBA title before losing it to Beibut Shumenov by a very controversial decision in 2010.

Adonis Stevenson could face Campillo or Umberto Savigne next

stevenson13243By Jim Dower: WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (24-1, 20 KOs) has missed out on several big fights this year in Sergey Kovalev, Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal.

It’s now looking like Stevenson will be settling for a title milking fight against either Gabriel Campillo or Umberto Savigne for his next fight this year, according to Dan Rafael. The little known Savigne is ranked #2 by the WBC, while Campillo is ranked No.9.

Stevenson could have taken a big money fight against #1 WBC Jean Pascal in a fight that would have done really well in Canada, but Stevenson didn’t want to agree to a 50-50 deal, according to Dan Rafael.
