Yard has a fantastic chance to beat Beterbiev – expert


British boxing expert, columnist Gareth Davis made a prediction for the upcoming fight between WBC/IBF/WBO light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) from Canada and British challenger Anthony Yard (23-2, 22 KOs), which will be held on January 28 in London.

Davis, like everyone else, is leaning towards the victory of the reigning champion, but at the same time believes that Yarde should by no means be written off.

Artur Beterbiev – Anthony Yarde: forecast and bets for the fight on January 28

“Can Anthony Yarde do it (win)? Of course it can. There are always shocking surprises in boxing, Gareth is convinced. – Beterbiev has an extraordinary record of 18 wins, 18 knockouts and no losses. If I’m not mistaken, none of the reigning world champions can boast of such a thing.”

“I think Yard should not expect to go the whole distance – he should impose his rules on the opponent. I could be wrong, but he needs to try to stop Beterbiev,” the analyst believes. “If I were him, I would definitely jump on him right away, without being reckless, and put up a fight. Anthony is very powerful, he can knock out anyone, and I don’t think he wants to get caught up in Beterbiev’s rhythm.”

“This is a great fight, and I still tend to win Beterbiev in the later rounds, because I always put my head, not my heart,” said the specialist. – Perhaps it will be a TKO from Beterbiev in the later rounds, or maybe he will win on points. But at the same time, Anthony has a fantastic chance to win.”
