This fight sees Beterbiev defend his IBF, WBO, and WBC light heavyweight title belts against his WBO mandatory, Yarde.

Artur Beterbiev’s Betting Outlook vs Yarde

Beterbiev has been in world title fights for the last five-plus years. He is very highly regarded on a pound-for-pound rankings level and is an experienced amateur of over two hundred fights.

The Russian-Canadian combatant looks to dispatch the UK warrior as Beterbiev aims to crush Yarde and silence his partisan England crowd.

The remaining fourth world title belt belongs to Dmitry Bivol, the WBA champion at 175 pounds. The winner of this contest will not only possess three world titles but will have a possible chance to one day become the undisputed champion at light heavyweight.

Beterbiev vs Yarde Recent Fights

Joe Smith Jr, win via TKO Fight 1 Stefani Koykov, win via KO
Marcus Browne, win via KO Fight 2 Lyndon Arthur, win via KO
Adam Deines, win via TKO Fight 3 Alex Theran, win via KO
Oleksandr Gvozdyk, win via TKO Fight 4 Lyndon Arthur, loss via SD

These two were initially supposed to fight in October but Beterbiev was forced to withdraw from an undisclosed injury. The two are finally readying to throw down in a few days’ time.

Anthony Yarde’s Betting Outlook vs Beterbiev

Yarde is embarking on his second world title big here after a previous WBO world title effort versus Sergey Kovalev resulted in Yarde getting stopped in the eleventh round. Since that bout, Yarde has been garnering emphatic wins in either European or Intercontinental title fights.

Anthony Yarde is riding a three-fight winning streak that includes a redemptive win over the second man to beat him as a pro, Lyndon Arthur.

Both are tremendous finishers with Yarde finishing all but one of his twenty-three bouts and Beterbiev finishing all 18 of his professional fights.

Yarde has been stopped as a pro though, as mentioned prior, and I see the undefeated Beterbev maintaining his unblemished record come this time next week.

Artur Beterbiev vs Anthony Yarde Prediction

This prizefight is scheduled for twelve rounds and I don’t see this one encroaching toward the final bell.

Beterbiev is boxing’s only present-day titleholder to have a finishing rate of one hundred percent and I see that continuing through the weekend.

I see strong value in seeking out prop bets centered on this fight not going the distance (-600), Beterbiev winning via KO or TKO (-370), and Beterbiev winning between rounds 7-9 (+350).

Pick: Artur Beterbiev (-900)
