    Default Artur Beterbiev.v Anthony Yarde

    Anthony Yarde’s promoter Frank Warren has revealed that he’s booked the O2 Arena in London for an October title match against unified light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev.

    Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says the winner of the Beterbiev-Yarde fight could possibly fight for the undisputed light heavyweight championship in the first quarter of next year.

    That might be a little hard to do, though, given that WBA 175-lb champion Dmitry Bivol is likely to be taking on Canelo Alvarez at that time in a rematch. If that fight doesn’t happen, hopefully, Arum has a quality contender to match against Beterbiev because the fans want to see Artur take on good fighters.

    For some reason, Arum doesn’t seem keen on letting Beterbiev fight Bivol. It could be the way Bivol schooled Joe Smith Jr. in 2019 that has him dragging his feet on making the fight with Beterbiev.

    The unbeaten IBF, WBC & WBO 175-lb champion Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) will be making a defense against Yarde (22-2, 21 KOs) in a fight that his promoter Bob Arum wanted.

    The deal was in the works for Beterbiev to Yarde before the champion fought WBO champion Joe Smith Jr last Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York.

    With Beterbiev’s second-round knockout win over Smith (28-4, 22 KOs), he gets to be the one that faces the 30-year-old Yarde, who has struggled when fighting higher caliber opposition during his career.

    Although the Beterbiev vs. Yarde fight is mandatory defense, it’s seen by some boxing fans as an easy voluntary for Artur because it’s expected to be a mismatch, perhaps more so than last Saturday’s match.

    Yarde can punch but his stamina and chin are sorely lacking, which doesn’t bode well for him against Beterbiev. But you can argue this fight is more about money than competitiveness, as it’s not expected to be a close affair. Beterbiev is in another galaxy than Yarde in terms of talent.

    We look forward to the sensational Artur Beterbiev crossing the pond to fight Anthony Yarde in London this fall. We hope that the winner can fight for the undisputed light heavyweight title early next year.

    “Anthony holds the No.1 spot with the WBO and would be called as mandatory in any case so, along with Bob Arum of Top Rank, we put our plans into action and have booked the 02 Arena,” said Yarde’s promoter Frank Warren on his website.

    “Now we are doing it the other way around and counting on Anthony to seize the belts.

    “I believe Anthony can do a job on Beterbiev. I really do. Yes, he is a big puncher, but then so is Anthony and Callum has shown before that Beterbiev can be rocked,” said Warren.

    Few boxing fans would agree with Warren’s opinion that Yarde “can do a job on Beterbiev.” On the contrary, fans view Yarde as food for Beterbiev and another mismatch. As bad as Yarde looked against Lyndon Arthur and washed up Sergey Kovalev in defeats, he wouldn’t beat even Joe Smith Jr.

    Yarde has the punching chance but only for the first 3 or 4 rounds.

    I am a big fan of Yarde, he is exciting to watch and explosive. The closest to a British Roy Jones with natural skills, speed, confidence and power.

    Yarde had the courage to go and face Kovolev in Russia but could not get past that jab. He lost due to inexperience and maybe poor stamina.

    Taking on Beterbiev is a huge risk and at least it is in England this time. The reward will be huge if Yarde wins.

    One thing is guaranteed, it will be a blow out one way or another.

    Hope Yarde can pull it off but it is likely he will be knocked out.

    Easy to forget Beterbiev will turn 38 one week before this kicks off. Not out of the realm of possibility that Yarde strikes it rich with fast-power out of the gate but can see Beterbiev just too crafty and consistent shortly after. Think a scrapy Yarde will unravel gradually and the water gets too deep.

    I don't know Yarde was outlasted by an ally old Kovalev, I think beterbiev will be fine here. He's always good to take a whack when he's on the attack though..but I think easy beterbiev win.

    I was thinking exactly the same about Beterbiev and his age. Looks like “Lions in the camp” just waits for his prey to get old before he pounces. It could happen, but IMO he would have to wait a lot fucking longer. I don’t even know why he deserves the shot.
    Sadly as each day goes by , it put more question marks on a Bivol/Beterbiev fight. Even if it happens, you’ve got the “grow old in the ring” schtick.

    The Lion mantra has changed to Beast from the East from Yarde.

    It would make sense for Yarde to step aside and allow the unification and pick up one of the belts afterwards but credit to him for taking the shot. Eddie's fighters are standing back and taking the safer route.

    "I never back down from a challenge, and Anthony Yarde is a top contender who asked for this fight," said Beterbiev,

    "I look forward to fighting in London for the first time since the Olympics.

    "Yarde called me 'slow' after my fight with Joe Smith Jr, but slow and steady wins the race and on January 28, I will win in London."

    "January 28 will be my night," said Yarde. "My destiny playing out in my home city, and this is what I have been longing for throughout my professional career, which started at Wembley.

    "I won't make any big predictions for this fight against a strong unified champion in Artur Beterbiev, but what I will say is that I will leave nothing to chance, and I am at my best when I fight fire with fire."
