Fast-rising power puncher Artur Beterbiev is gaining steam.

Though Beterbiev has only nine pro fights on his resume, the Russian native living in Montreal has captivated audiences with his brutal style and finishing ability. And now his next fight is set.

Promoter Yvon Michel told USA TODAY Sports that Beterbiev likely will return Oct. 3 at Montreal’s Bell Centre on another Premier Boxing Champions show. The opponent is not yet set though. Is Beterbiev ready for a step-up foe?
