Beterbiev Vs Smith: Date, Start Time & Undercard Info

Beterbiev Vs Smith: Date, Start Time & Undercard Info

The WBC/WBO/IBF light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev had unforeseen dental procedure that led to the postponement of his August 19 bout with ex-world champion Callum Smith. The new date? Saturday, January 13, to be held at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City, Canada.

Bob Arum, Top Rank’s chairman, expressed his delight. “Although the bout is delayed by a few months, I’m excited for Artur Beterbiev to showcase his skills before the Quebec City audience,” he stated. He further added that with Beterbiev’s full recovery and Smith’s reputation as a prior champion, January 13th is bound to see a great fight.

Camille Estephan, the president of Eye of the Tiger, chimed in on the enthusiasm, “I’m grateful for the swift agreement between the camps, ensuring this light heavyweight championship mega bout goes on.” He predicts a heated atmosphere come January in Quebec City.

Diving into statistics, Beterbiev boasts a 19-0 record, all of them being knockouts. Since seizing the IBF title in November 2017, he’s defended it seven times. His most recent victory? An eighth-round TKO against Anthony Yarde in London. Smith, a Liverpool native with a record of 29-1 and 21 KOs, previously held the titles of Ring Magazine and WBA super middleweight world champion. After a loss to Canelo Alvarez in December 2020, he shifted to the light heavyweight division, securing two wins since.
