Artur Beterbiev – Anthony Yarde: forecast and bets for the fight on January 28
“I had a good training camp with good sparring,” Beterbiev said after the event. I’ll try to show my best side. My team and I are always ready for anything, for any strategy. I can’t compare Yard to Joe Smith, it’s a different fight. Joe Smith then had a belt. It’s incomparable… Bivol? Now I only think about Saturday’s fight.”
“If you look at what he (Beterbiev) has achieved to date, it’s really impressive. And that’s what gives me strength,” said Yard. “So when I beat him, I’ll earn some respect. He was never in a losing position. But what matters to me is what I do. This is how I am, and this is how I act. It’s all about me and my legacy. And he’s just a man with belts.”
