We are one month into 2023 and will be ending the month with a blockbuster showdown- unified Light Heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev vs. Anthony Yarde, the 175-pound Commonwealth champion and former WBO contender, this 28th of January in London, with Beterbiev’s WBC, WBO and IBF belts up for grabs.
Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs), the undefeated knockout artist from Dagestan, added the WBO belt to his WBC and IBF crowns after defeating Joe Smith Jr. in his last outing in the squared circle, in June last year in New York. The Russian-Canadian will be looking to add one more title defense to his name ahead of the proposed undisputed clash with WBA champ Dmitry Bivol.
Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs), on the other hand, is up against the toughest challenge of his career. The Briton from Hackney is on a three fight winning streak. In his last fight, “The Beast from the East” marked a third round knockout victory over Stefani Koykov in Telford. With having the home advantage Yarde will be aiming for a shocker.
