Alexander Besputin To Return on Beterbiev vs. Deines Card

Former world champion Alexander Besputin will fight on December 11 in Moscow, according to information the boxer provided to TASS.

The main battle of the evening on that date, will feature Russia's Artur Beterbiev making a defense of his World Boxing Council (WBC) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) light heavyweight titles against Adam Deines of Germany.

"The next fight is scheduled for December 11 in the main event of the fight of Artur Beterbiev," Besputin said.

Earlier this year, the World Boxing Association (WBA) stripped Besputin of the "regular" world welterweight title. The athlete failed a doping test after a fight with Rajab Butaev in December of last year in Monaco.

Besputin, who shares the same promoter and manager as Ukrainian boxer Vasily Lomachenko , disagrees with the outcome of his friend's loss from last Saturday night at the hands of Teofimo Lopez.

On Saturday night, Lomachenko lost a twelve round unanimous decision to Lopez - with scores of 116-112, 117-111 and 119-109.

"For me, Lomachenko won the fight. I thought the judge [who scored 119-109] was not feeling well. Apparently, she didn't have a fight in front of her eyes, but a veil. Of course, this is a robbery," Besputin said.

With the win, Lopez unified four lightweight world titles, defending the International Boxing Federation (IBF) belt and winning the World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Organization (WBO) and World Boxing Council Franchise (WBC) belts that belonged to Lomachenko.

Former world champion? He won a secondary world title (the WBA "regular" title) in the same division Pacquiao was already super champion. Then he gets stripped immediately after his A and B samples come back positive for PEDs. I ask…

[QUOTE=Qbox;20829294]Funny thing is, he gets caught roiding against Butaev yet he fights again before Butaev![/QUOTE] Ridiculous. Boxing needs to get more serious about penalizing these PED cheats.
