The World Boxing Organization (WBO) has ordered Russian light heavyweight Artur Beterbiev (20-0, 20 KOs) to provide evidence of his injury. On May 4, the WBC, WBO, and IBF champion announced that he had torn his meniscus and canceled his absolute title fight against WBA belt holder Dmitry Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs), scheduled for June 1 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

"Within the next 10 days, Beterbiev must provide detailed medical evidence of the injury, the results of the study, the prognosis of recovery, and the doctor's opinion on when he will be cleared for active performances," the WBO said in a statement.
