Turki Al al-Sheikh, chairman of Saudi Arabia's General Authority for Entertainment, tells ESPN that a replacement is being sought for Bivol at the June 1 tournament.

Beterbiev (20-0, 20 KOs) will undergo knee surgery and is expected to be out until at least September, sources said. It is hoped that the Beterbiev-Bivol fight will still take place later this year.
