Yarde back in action Saturday

Popular all-action light heavyweight contender Anthony Yarde will be in action Saturday on Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren’s card at the Copperbox in London. Yarde (24-3, 23 KOs) will face Marko Nikolic (32-3, 12 KOs) in a ten-rounder. Happily, the card has been picked up by ESPN+ in the US. TNT Sports will air the card in the UK.

In the main event, unbeaten WBC #4 middleweight Hamzah Sheeraz (18-0, 14 KOs) takes on WBC #8 rated former world title challenger Liam Williams (25-4-1, 20 KOs) in a twelve round fight for the WBC silver belt.

Also, lightweight knockout artist Sam Noakes (12-0, 12 KOs) meets fellow unbeaten Lewis Sylvester (13-0, 4 KOs) for the Commonwealth, British, and WBC International Silver titles.

  • Light heavyweight is a strong division in the UK with a number of good matchups in the offing. Yarde needs a couple of these victories before looking at world honours again.

  • I’m thinking they’re heading towards Buatsi – Yarde with all of the belts tied up. Wouldn’t be surprised if the IBF stripped Beterbiev – Bivol winner though.

    • I think that’s the fight, Lucie. Butasi looked good Saturday and I think he took his foot off the gas in the 12th round against azeez. A yarde- butasi, at least to me is a toss up, but very entertaining!

  • Yarde has come up short when fighting the best but damm he makes the fights exciting

  • It is difficult to see where Yarde is going, first of all, he needs to get rid of that circus clown he has as a trainer. This is the pro game, he needs a top trainer to take him further.

  • Yarde’s lack of amateur pedigree will always be his undoing against top guys at Lightheavyweight, but his athleticism and still relatively young age at 32, make him a strong challenger for anyone in the division. He’s taken a couple of beatings, but his build still affords him a few more poundings before hanging them up.
