Beterbiev really showed his resolve and skill. We had 7 pulsating rounds with Yarde just ahead. After looking a little disheartened, Beterbiev turned the contest with a tremendous show of power. Whilst disappointed that Yarde couldn't quite do it, I have witnessed a truly great contest. Yarde will come again and Beterbiev will go on to be a boxing great. I felt that Yarde could surprise us all and win, I thought maybe in 9. It looked as if he was on the way to do that but Beterbiev pulled out a great finish. Brilliant work by Yarde's corner in protecting their man by pulling him out when they did.
