Yarde vs Arthur Prediction
Both fighters are 28 years of age and fight using an orthodox style. Yarde has a KO ratio of 94%, with Arthur at 75%.
Lyndon Arthur certainly has more amateur fights, with around 50 before turning pro. Arthur defeated Emmanuel Anim in 2019 for the vacant commonwealth light–heavyweight title.
Overall Yarde is the stronger and more imposing boxer. Expect this to play a huge factor, due to Arthur being a slimmer framed fighter.
We believe Yarde will get the job done on July 11. However at odds of 1/6 they are little inflated – thus Arthur is being overlooked by the oddsmakers.
Prediction: Anthony Yarde by KO/TKO.
Yarde’s Personal Tragedy Used as Motivation
Yarde recently lost his father and grandmother to COVID-19 in the space of a week. Speaking to BBCSport in a recent interview, Yarde opened up about the real dangers of COVID-19 and how that’s had a huge impact on his family.
“You need to mourn, you need to be upset, to give yourself time to replenish. Then you use it all as fuel to get stronger. I’ll get stronger. I want to make all my family proud, particularly my mum Sonia. Ninety percent of everything I do is for her, but this has all added to that drive.”
Wise words from the promising heavyweight. Yarde is currently (19-1, 18 KO) also says that training has helped him keep his mind off of the circumstances.
