Top Rank Boxing in association with Queensberry Promotions presents Artur Beterbiev vs. Anthony Yarde for the WBC/WBO/IBF light heavyweight championship of the world, live on Saturday night at the OVO Arena Wembley in London, England. Broadcast through BT Sport and ESPN+ live streaming services online.
Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) is the only boxing champion with 100 percent knockout ratio and he is eager to unify all the titles against WBA champion Dmitry Bivol, but first he must get by a real tough challenger in heavy handed Brit Anthony Yarde.
Anthony Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs) will be fighting in his second world title bout, first was against WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev but he fell short of the prize, now he has a chance at greatness and to achieve his dream of becoming a world champion against the best in the 175 pounds weight class.
Even thought the fight is in Yarde’s backyard, the British challenger is the heavy underdog going into the bout, but Beterbiev must make sure not to leave the fight in the judges hands because nobody knows how the judges will score it. Beterbiev only knows knockout since all of his bouts ending by stoppage and that is what he plans on doing Saturday night and he believes Yarde will play right into his hands because of his offensive nature.
