By Alexey Sukachev

Artur Beterbiyev, one of the most wanted amateur fighters from Russia to make a shift to the paid ranks, will finally make his pro debut on May 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, as a part of the undercard to one of the biggest fights in Canadian history between former champions Lucian Bute and Jean Pascal. Beterbiyev inked a deal with Yvon Michel and his GYM promotional group and will be featured in a four-rounder against a TBA.

The 28-year old native of Dagestan, Russia, had a decorated amateur career, winning a gold medal at the 2006 Euro championships (beating Kenneth Egan and Ismayl Sillakh in the process) and at the 2009 Milano World championships. He was also a silver medalist at the 2007 world championships in chicago and took part in two Summer Olympics. Beterbiyev is best known for his vaunted power and a knockout punch as well as a lack of technical refinement and somewhat questionable stamina.

“He is a beast in the ring”, said Artur’s trainer Mark Ramsey. “I’m an optimist. We shall make a new Tyson of Artur."

[QUOTE=Yakushev]He's Chechen from Chechen Respublic, not from Dagestan.[/QUOTE] Wrong. He is from Hasavyurt in Dagestan even though he is an ethnic Chechen.

He's Chechen from Chechen Respublic, not from Dagestan.

Great news and a perfect card/event for him to make his debut on.

This is good news. Too bad he didn't turn pro when he was four years younger, after winning gold in 2009.

Great to see him go pro but he did not win Gold at the 2011 World Championships like the article says he lost before the medal round. He won gold at the 2009 World Championships.
