    Beterbiev was disappointment.

  • No10Count

    Not sure why you people think this was a disappointment.
    Koelling is a very defensive fighter,is known to take a shot and had never been stopped. Beterbiev boxed just as he should have.

    Pretty much what I expected.

  • Julien Gamache

    Koelling made the fight boring, not Beterbiev. Koelling only chance was based on Beterbiev fading in the later rounds. Artur threw more than 1000 punches in the fight but was wise to vary the intensity and speed in order to have energy left.

    Even if you have power, it may be difficult to KO a fighter who keeps his hands high, moves his legs and head and do not throw any punches so he can’t be countered.

  • Mattsnow

    Awfully boring, I was scared Beterbiev would lose his KO record. The European was a paper champ.

    A B, Another Blast, Any Bother; not likely.
