Footage emerges of Canelo’s potential future opponent Artur Beterbiev doing unusual and intense training drills that rival Floyd Mayweather Jr and Tyson Fury


We’re used to seeing videos of Floyd Mayweather Jr dazzling with his elaborate pad routines or Tyson Fury working out in his underwear, but Artur Beterbiev may have just topped the lot.

Beterbiev’s promotion company, Top Rank, posted a series of clips on its Twitter of the Russian-born light heavyweight world champion practicing a number of bizarre training methods.

He has since defended his titles twice against Adam Deines and Marcus Browne

Beterbiev beat Gvozdyk in 2019 to become unified light heavyweight champion

From unusual push-ups to ghost boxing with a jump rope, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Top Rank posted the video with the caption “Artur Beterbiev’s training methods are crazy”.

Although it might sound weird, it clearly works because Beterbiev has a perfect professional record so far, with 17 fights, 17 wins and 17 knockouts.

The Canadian resident currently holds the unified WBC and IBF world light heavyweight titles.

He is preparing for another unification bout with Joe Smith Jr, who holds the WBO title, on June 18.

Beterbiev is the favorite to emerge victorious and if he does, an undisputed clash with the winner of the rematch between Canelo and Dmitry Bivol could be on the cards.
