The April 4 Premier Boxing Champions card, which will air on Saturday afternoon on CBS from Quebec City, and features the light heavyweight showdown between Adonis Stevenson and Sakio Bika, now has a co-feature.

Russian prospect Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) will step up in class to face former titlist Gabriel Campillo (25-6-1, 11 KOs).

“The journalists won’t be happy since I did not KO anybody today,” laughed Beterbiev after a public training session today in Quebec City where he sparred with Bob Ajisafe and Blake Caparello.

“I really think it will be a short night for Campillo,” Caparello said after sparring Beterbiev. “This guy has some incredible brute force. He could even chase and hunt down a strong Sergey Kovalev in the ring,”

Beterbiev-Campillo is an IBF light heavyweight title eliminator.

“I will put on a good show and fight April 4th,” Beterbiev continued. “When I step in the ring, I don’t have a friend. I want to continue to get better until I face Sergey Kovalev again. And I will beat him again!”
