Artur Beterbiev is a bright prospect of Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM). A true jewel, the athlete of Chechen descent terrorized the international amateur scene.

A ferocious tank, Beterbiev represented Russia at Beijing and London Olympic games. He also won a gold medal and a silver medal at the World amateur championship, as multiples gold medals in a lot of other tournaments (World cup, European championship).

In 2010, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) named him the boxer of the year, meaning that he was considered the best pound for pound amateur fighter in the world. He also has defeated the WBO world light-heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in the amateurs.

Discovered by his former manager Anna Reva, the gladiator from Daghestan left behind family and friends to fulfill his dream of becoming a professional world champion.

Freshly arrived in Montreal, Beterbiev chose to train at GYM boxing headquarters, where trainer Marc Ramsay was amazed with what he saw: a diamond in the rough.

The double Olympian has also impressed the seasoned conditioning coach André Kulesza, who had already trained world champions Léonard Dorin, Lucian Bute, Adrian Diaconu and Éric Lucas. Kulesza admitted that the new rookie was the most gifted athlete he ever worked with.

Artur Beterbiev has all the ingredients to be Montreal next favorite flavor. He is strong as a tank, his style is spectacular and he is already trying to learn French.

As a pro, he inhaled every opponent he faced.

In only his 6th fight, he crushed former IBF champion Tavoris Cloud in less than two rounds to capture the NABA strap.

In his first presence on Showtime, Artur destroyed previously undefeated Jeff Page Jr, stopping him in the 2nd round.

Spaniard southpaw Gabriel Campillo was next in line, in an IBF eliminator bout for the #2 spot in the IBF world ranking, which was televised in the first Premier Boxing Champions show, live on NBC.

The former WBA champion was dropped and viciously knocked out in the 4th round.

June 12th, 2015 in Chicago, he stopped American southpaw Alexander Johnson in the 7th round, live on Spike TV.

After a one year absence caused by a shoulder injury, Beterbiev climbed back in the ring June 4th at the Bell Centre against Argentine Olympian Ezequiel Maderna, whom he defeated by stoppage in the 4th round.

Highly ranked by all the sanctioning bodies, with only 10 pro fights, Artur Beterbiev has opened eyes all around the world. The scariest part is that it is only the beginning.
