What’s more, the world has been waiting a long time for Beterbiev and the 22-0 Bivol to square off in the ring. On top of that the winner of a Beterbiev-Bivol match would become the undisputed light heavyweight champion of the world. As things stand, Beterbiev – who has stopped every last one of his opponents within the distance – holds the WBC, WBO, and IBF titles while Bivol holds the WBA belt.
