BETERBIEV HEADING TO ESPN

IBF Light Heavyweight King Artur Beterbiev will switch alliance from DAZN to ESPN according to Fox Sports’ Mike Coppinger.

He reports that Beterbiev will part ways with the streaming service DAZN and move to Top Rank and ESPN whilst also doing away with powerful adviser Al Haymon in the process.

Originally it was thought back in 2017 that Beterbiev would sign with Top Rank but a month later it had a change of heart, instead turning to Eddie Hearn and a three-fight deal with Matchroom Boxing.

In October he made his debut on DAZN by stopping Callum Johnson with his second scheduled to be against Joe Smith in February which now won’t happen.

Beterbiev is expected to sign a co-promotional deal with Top Rank with his promoter Yvon Michel still involved.


I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
