  • This is a big fight in England and I think it’s will almost as good as beterbiev and bivol. It’s that kind of fight. Notice, I say almost as good! A definite must see.

    • It’s a natural fight. They were already trying to make it as far as I know. I think the WBO just went ahead and sweetened the deal for them.

      • Most definitely Lucie, after buatisi’s last win, it was in the cards to be put together. I’m looking forward to this one.

  • Buatsi’s allround ability will neutralize Yarde’s power. Yarde also gasses late in the fight (maybe because of his muscle mass),Buatsi has shown a whole lot of stamina late in hard action fights. Buatsi by late stoppage.

  • Yarde in a big fight again, good managers, not bad fighter though.
