WBO CALLS OUT BETERBIEV: WHAT'S THE TRUTH BEHIND THE INJURY?

The World Boxing Organization (WBO) has demanded light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev to reveal the full extent of his latest injury within the next 10 days. Beterbiev suffered a ruptured meniscus during training, leading to the postponement of his highly anticipated bout against Dmitry Bivol for the undisputed light heavyweight championship.

The fight, originally set for June 1 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, is now on hold as Beterbiev’s recovery timeline remains uncertain. This setback has prompted the WBO to take action, requesting comprehensive medical documentation from Beterbiev to assess his readiness to compete.
