However, strength is not the only thing worth talking about about Artur Beterbiev, the ability to control the ring, the careful play style combined with the feeling of extreme distance that made Artur Beterbiev become a champion that is hard to power is most deposed today.

The boxer holds an unbeaten record through 15 matches. Artur Beterbiev has defeated KO and TKO against every opponent he has ever faced. If the unbeaten record is not enough to make people admire, then look at the achievements of the opponents Beterbiev has defeated.
