Two knockout artists Artur Beterbiev vs. Anthony Yarde will go toe to toe for the unified light heavyweight championship of the world live on Saturday night, at the OVO Arena Wembley in London, England.
Unbeaten WBC, WBO and IBF world champion Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs), will put his titles on the line against hard hitting British challenger Anthony Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs).
Beterbiev, is the only currently active boxing champion with a 100 percent knockout ratio and he goes up against a fellow power puncher in Yarde in what has the making of an all out action packed fight that has a high chance of ending by KO.
This will be Beterbiev’s first time fighting in the UK professionally, he last fought in London at the 2012 Olympic games as an amateur boxer.
British challenger Yarde is hungry for championship gold, and he is motivated by being counted out as an underdog because in his heart he believes he has the power to shock Beterbiev and keep the world titles in England.
This will be the second chance at a world title for Yarde, he lost against Sergey Kovalev in his first title bid at light heavyweight, in a tough battle. His conditioning was off because he tried to take Kovalev out early and got careless.
Tonight he will enter the ring with more experience and composure and plans on fighting an offensively smart fight.
