Beterbiev and GYM are locked in a legal battle for some time now, and it’s finally over. Together with his promotional difficulties, Beterbiev hasn’t been as busy as far as he should’ve been at the past couple of years, in fighting once in 2017 and 2018. On the undercard of all Beterbiev vs. Kalajdzic is IBF super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas confronting challenger Ryuichi Funai.

It’s unclear if Leading Rank should find a way to show Beterbiev to a celebrity or perhaps not with the amount of time he has left in his career. The two-time Russian Olympian Beterbiev have a late begin his profession after turning expert six decades ago in a ripe age of 28. Whenever you’ve got fighters turning expert in their teens, it’s kind quite odd to have someone pushing 30 turning expert. For Top Rank to produce the most of the time that Beterbiev has left in his years, they’t must put him in with the ideal opposition possible. Kalajdzic Is a Wonderful first battle for Beterbiev off and running with Top Rank Boxing on ESPN. The promotional company needs to continue putting Beterbiev in with good fighters by fitting him in unification battles against WBC 175 pound winner Oleksander Gvozdyk, WBO champion Sergey Kovalev, each which are promoted by Top Rank, and then WBA champion Dmitry Bivol. It’s unclear whether Leading Rank can look to ever match Beterbiev against Bivol. That’SA struggle that might be a terrible concept for Beterbiev to take unless it’s made right now while he’s still in his prime. The more that struggle begs the longer likely Bivol readily wins it.
Beterbiev is coming out of an aggressive 4th round knockout conquer Callum Johnson last October. Beterbiev was badly hurt in that struggle by Johnson at one point. Beterbiev will need to fight a lot better than that if he wants to overcome Kalajdzic, and unify against Bivol, Gvozdyk, and Kovalev. Kalajdzic nearly conquer Marcus Browne three decades ago in losing a controversial 8 round split decision in a struggle that lots of Boxing enthusiast believed he deserved the victory. If Kalajdzic struggles such as that against Beterbiev, he could beat him, especially if he happens strong at the second half the struggle. Beterbiev is a guy with a great deal of power, however a low work speed. Kalajdzic has lots of power, and also a high speed. If you are doing the match, Kalajdzic might possibly be on the brink of unseating Beterbiev while the IBF champion. If this occurs, then Leading Rank might need to work out the things they need to do with Beterbiev. Can they take a possibility of putting him in with Kalajdzic and watching him potentially lose another struggle or do they target him in Kovalev or Gvozdyk? Kovalev is arguably more beatable at this time than Gvozdyk.
