Arthur vs Yarde 2: UK fight time, prediction, undercard, odds and more


L

yndon Arthur and Anthony Yarde face each other in the ring again for their much-anticipated light-heavyweight rematch in London this weekend.

James Cook has since been added to the team to help bounce back from that defeat, the second of Yarde’s career after he was beaten by Sergey Kovalev in Russia in 2019 when he fought for the WBO world title.

There is no doubting Yarde has fought at the higher level, but Arthur boasts an unbeaten record and controlled much of the bout when the pair fought last year.

Both have won since then – Yarde dispatching Alex Theran inside the opening round in August, while Arthur needed nine rounds to stop Davide Faraci a month earlier.

Yarde knows he cannot afford to lose the rematch, and it’s set to be a thrilling all-British clash on Saturday night.
