Yard turned out to be the most persistent of all Beterbiev’s rivals – cutman Anber’s impressions


The famous cutman Russ Anber, who worked in the corner of the world light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev (19-0, 19 KOs) in the last fight against Anthony Yarde (23-3, 22 KOs), told how positive the opponent made an impression on Arthur’s team.

Recall that the fight, which took place on January 28 in London (England), ended with an early victory for Beterbiev by technical knockout in the 8th round, after the corner of the knocked-down challenger refused to continue.

“The first thing I said to (Beterbiev’s coach) Mark (Ramsey) during the fight was, ‘This guy is more resilient than any of Beterbiev’s previous opponents. He took punches like the rest, but those who came before him did not respond to them the way he did. Marcus Braun also missed, but at the same time he continued to hand over and did not answer with the same coin. And this guy continued to fight on a collision course, ”said Anber.

“The pressure that Beterbiev exerts forces you to switch to fifth gear when you want to be in second,” the specialist emphasized. — You don’t want to spend more energy, but Beterbiev is forcing you to do it. Yard needed to show courage and courage, he tried very hard and did everything he could to use his power to make Beterbiev imbued with respect. He did it, great performance from Anthony.”

“I expected it to be a difficult fight, but I assumed that as soon as we applied him well, he would start to give up. However, this did not happen – he did not give up and fought back. After that, we said in the corner (to Beterbiev): “Let’s go back to the jab” (laughs), ”Russ went into details a little more.

By the way, Yard already wants a rematch, and one well-known expert believes that Anthony won a moral victory in the battle with Beterbiev.
