Boxing: IBF announces purse bids for Beterbiev vs Johnson - IBF

Callum Johnson is getting an opportunity at a title shot after light heavyweight prospect Anthony Yarde, turned down the opportunity at the title. Johnson is undefeated and was last in the ring when he walked through Frank Buglioni by first-round TKO. It’s a big step up for the young fighter, he must get credit for taking on such a tall task.

Whether or not Beterbiev will have his promotional issues in order before the purse bid is yet to be determined. How will it affect the purse bid itself is anyone’s guess. Bob Arum, of Top Rank, expects everything to go well and plans on solely promoting Beterbiev real soon. Arum and Top Rank won the purse bid for Beterbiev’s fight in November.
