The Artur Beterbiev vs. Anthony Yarde light heavyweight championship unification takes place on Saturday night from the OVO Arena Wembley in London, England and will be live streamed online via BT Sport and ESPN+.
Undefeated unified IBF, WBC and WBO light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) will defend his titles against hard hitting British challenger Anthony Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs) in a bout between two knockout artists where the chances are high that the fight will not go the distance.
Beterbiev, has the highest knockout percentage in boxing with all 18 of his fights ending by stoppage, and the Montreal, Quebec, Canada based champion is one belt shy of becoming the undisputed 175-pound champion.
Top Rank promotions believe that Beterbiev will deliver another explosive KO against Yarde and hopefully will be able to finally battle it out for undisputed with undefeated WBA champion Dmitry Bivol.
Yarde, was well known in the boxing circles as a powerful and rugged fight who was flawed in technique but made up for it with aggression and KO power.
The British slugger is confident that he will be able to shock the world and knockout Beterbiev because he believes the champion has never felt the power he possess and he will test his chin on Saturday night.
