The manager of the WBC light heavyweight champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk (17-0, 14 KOs), Egis Klimas, said that Ukrainian will defeat the IBF title holder Artur Beterbiev (14-0, 14 KOs), Xsport reports.

“Preparation for Beterbiev is going well, everything is going well. Most importantly, Teddy Atlas is pleased with the sparring partners. They do the work that he wants. I’m waiting for this fight myself. Promotion of the bout? The promoters did not finish their job before the fight. I did not see a big buildup of Gvozdyk before the championship fight. When he went out to fight Stevenson, few people had heard of him before.

Why is Gvozdyk not a star in the USA? The fault is that he was born in Ukraine, and not in America or Mexico. Then he would be the biggest star that could be.

There will be no chess game in the Gvozdyk-Beterbiev bout. Russian will come up stiff and will be looking for a knockout punch. Well, Sasha will need to get away from this, work well from the defense, “dance” the opponent up and land punches. We all understand that Beterbiev also has a problem. Sanya can hit, he has something to hit with. We saw that Gvozdyk can take a punch as well. No need to do this, but he can. Stevenson charged him once pretty well, but Sasha calmly reacted to this. I don’t know, I’m sure that Sanya will win the fight”.

As we reported earlier, the unification bout between Gvozdyk and Beterbiev will take place on October 19, in Philadelphia. The WBC and IBF light heavyweight belts will be at stake.
