Where To Watch:
Why Bet on Artur Beterbiev
Beterbiev is known as a big puncher, having won all 18 of his professional bouts inside the distance, but he was also a superb amateur.
Beterbiev claimed the IBF belt in just his 12th pro fight, stopping Enrico Kolling in the final round of a one-sided contest.
British champion Callum Johnson was beaten in his first defense and the WBC title was added to his CV via a 10th-round triumph over Oleksandr Gvozdyk in October 2019.
WBO champ Joe Smith Jr was blown away inside two rounds in New York last summer and a big-money unification match with WBA kingpin Dmitry Bivol is the ultimate target.
First, though, Beterbiev must get past this mandatory defense versus Yarde, with one eye set on making sure of the Bivol bout.
Why Bet on Anthony Yarde
The 31-year-old, from Hackney, has won 23 of his 25 fights, with 22 of those victories coming inside the distance.
He rattled off 18 straight wins before challenging for the WBO title then held by the excellent Sergey Kovalev.
Yarde had his moments in that bout but was eventually stopped in round 11, with Kovalev praising his opponent’s bravery.
The Beast from the East suffered his only other defeat when going down by a split decision to Lyndon Arthur in December 2020.
A year later, he avenged that loss when knocking out Arthur in round four to secure the Commonwealth title.
November’s early triumph over Stefani Koykov was a nice warm-up for this contest and he is now ready to step up in class again.
