Yard threatens to do to Beterbiev what he did to Smith – video


Just in New York (USA), Russian light heavyweight Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) did not notice American Joe Smith Jr. (28-4, 22 KOs) and knocked him out in 2 rounds. At stake was the WBC, IBF and WBO titles.

With a high degree of probability, in the next fight, Beterbiev will fight with the WBO mandatory challenger British slugger Anthony Yarde (22-2, 21 KOs) – at least promoter Bob Arum said so (Top Rank).

Yard was present at the Beterbiev vs Smith fight and shared his impression: “I’m next. I’ll do the same to him!”
