This showdown between two of boxing’s best has been highly anticipated for several years, but has now been delayed.

Beterbiev unfortunately suffered a torn meniscus and requires knee surgery, meaning the fight will take place later this year.

Bivol could face a new opponent and he could still be part of an impressive card featuring Deontay Wilder, Daniel Dubois and more.

Beterbiev vs. Bivol: Date and how to track

This huge fight was scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 1 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The fight has, however, been postponed, with a new date yet to be confirmed.

The card will continue to exist and will be broadcast live on TNT Sports and DAZN in the UK.

Full broadcast details have not yet been announced.
