Beterbiev will be fighting for the first time since winning by knockout over Alexander Johnson on June 12, 2015.  In that contest which took place at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Beterbiev was fighting for the first time outside of Quebec. He picked up a vacant WBO-NABO world title with the win.

Maderna suffered his only two career defeats to Thomas Oosthuizen and Edwin Rodriguez. He has never been stopped and the loss to Oosthuizen was a close majority decision. Maderna has since won his last three fights, two by technical knockout.

Beterbiev was ordered to take part in a final IBF eliminator last year. Several opponents had turned him down. Eventually a deal was close with a potential opponent, but he suffered an injury and was forced to withdraw. Replacing him in the eliminator was Sullivan Barrera, who was originally slated tof ace Beterbiev but unable to enter Canada due to a legal issue.

The undefeated contender is hoping to have at least 2-3 fights this year with an eventual title shot in the near future.

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;16640944]Make Berterbiev - Kovalev already :wank:[/QUOTE] Artur needs a couple more warm up fights before he can go ahead and shut all the doubters up with a 3rd win over Kovalev... Chilemba, Gonzalez, Barrera, Shabranskyy would all be well fitted…
