Artur Beterbiev vs Anthony Yarde: UK start time, how to watch, full card

Later tonight, Artur Beterbiev and Anthony Yarde collide in one of the biggest fights of the year, and we’ve got all the information you need, including the UK start time.

Back in 2019, ‘The Beast from the East’ travelled to Russia to challenge Sergey Kovalev for the light heavyweight world title. And despite his lack of experience, he gave the champ all he could handle, even rocking him in the eighth round. But ultimately, the seasoned operator overcame the storm and rendered the determined Brit unconscious.

Now, almost four years on from that night in Chelyabinsk, Yarde will attempt to reach the pinnacle of the sport once again. But this time, he’s swimming in even deeper waters. While unlike Kovalev, Beterbiev is putting his belts on the line in London the Londoner’s backyard, he poses an almost impossible challenge.

With Olympic pedigree and the punching power to match, the ruthless fighter is the only champion in boxing to boast a 100% KO ratio. With his outrageous talent and frightening aura, few give Yarde a chance, claiming he lacks the fundamental skills to compete with the unified champion.

However, Beterbiev has tasted the canvas on two occasions, giving fans an element of hope. While the hometown hero may not have the achievements behind him, he undoubtedly carries the firing power to change the bout in an instant. Therefore, this is a match-up that combat sports enthusiasts can’t afford to miss.
