IBF World Light Heavyweight Champion Artur Beterbiev will host a fan and media meet & greet ahead of his upcoming world championship unification bout. Fans are invited to join Beterbiev at The Melody Restaurant at 11723 Bustleton Avenue in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7:00pm.

Beterbiev, who hails from Khasavyurt, Russia, will face fellow undefeated light heavyweight Oleksandr Gvozdyk of Kharkov, Ukraine on Friday, Oct 18 at Temple University’s Liacouras Center. It will be the third defense of his belt since stopping Enrico Kölling in the 12th round of their 2017 matchup in Fresno, California to win the vacant title. Gvozdyk’s WBC Light Heavyweight title will be on the line for the bout, with the winner taking both belts and his opponent’s undefeated record.

This will be Beterbiev’s first fight in Philadelphia, which is home to thousands of Russian immigrants.
