Beterbiev needs to win Yarde to get Bivil Fight


Via Jim Calfa: Artur Beterbiev needs a win over Anthony Yarde on Saturday night to continue his undisputed lightweight bout against WBA champion Dmitry Bivol in 2023.

Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) defends his 175 lb IBF, WBC & WBO belts against the WBO Mandatory Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs) live on ESPN+ at the OVO Arena in London, England.

Yarde is standing in Betebiev’s way, and he can’t afford to go wrong in this fight if he is to go on to face Bivol in what will be the biggest match of his professional career. .

Most boxing fans think that Yarde has only one boxer’s chance of winning because he can’t match Beterbiev in terms of technique, punching ability, physical strength or experience.

Compared to Beterbiev’s last match against Joe Smith Jr, this contest was significantly less noisy. We just saw Liam Smith beat Chris Eubank Jr last weekend in a match that very few could win.

Of course, there is a significant difference between Eubank Jr, a boxer who has never been a world champion, and the two-time Olympian Beterbiev.

However, that doesn’t mean Yarde won’t win, because he has enough power to defeat anyone if he lands cleanly.

“I am very excited to fight there,” Artur Betebiev told World Boxing Weekly about him fighting Anthony Yarde in London. “I see this as a new experience. I hope if I do good box.

“We always try to be ready to do 12 rounds and do what we are doing.

“Too good. In his camp, he could be a lion,” says Beterbiev of Yarde. “I think not. It’s different when it’s a mandatory match and a duty match,” said Beterbiev when asked if there was a rematch clause in the contract. think no.

“I never thought about it. We always aim for a happy ending, a good ending,” said Beterbiev when asked if he would try to fight Yarde again if he lost.

“We don’t know, we never know, but right now, I like what I do, boxing, training, everything I do now,” Beterbiev said of his retirement.

“We watched the game and watched some games, but we weren’t focused on how he lost or won,” Beterbiev said of whether he watched Yarde’s game against Yarde. Sergey Kovalev or not. “We take some bits from everywhere. I’ll show you on January 28Beterbiev said.
