The British contender for the world light heavyweight championship (up to 79.4 kg) Anthony Yarde (23-2, 22 KOs) has great respect for his opponent in tomorrow’s fight, WBC, WBO and IBF title holder Artur Beterbiev (18-0 , 18 KOs) from Canada. He even calls him “scary”.
But he is still glad that it is Arthur who will go against him in the ring, and is going to forget about respect after the starting gong.

“I am happy that I am alive and that I am at this stage of my life,” said Yard. – Well, the fact that I’m an underdog … But don’t care. When I step into the ring and get down to business, everyone knows what I’m capable of. And I will not lie now or hang noodles on someone’s ears. He has 18 fights, 18 wins, a 100% knockout rate, Olympics. He has achieved a lot in this sport and should be respected for it. I respect him. But when we enter the ring, there will be no place for any respect. I’m sure he’ll tell you the same.”
“I am happy that Beterbiev, this terrible person, will become my rival. Happy to have three titles on the line. Because it is heritage and history. It gives me goosebumps and I love the feeling. This adventure makes me happy,” admitted Anthony.
