  • Yarde looks like Mike Tyson against 2nd rate competition, but has yet to hang and bang at the top level. Is Lyndon Artthur even top level? Not really sure who Alex Theran is, but he sports a decent record….but!!!…he’s from Colombia, and fights out of New England. Two regions where fighters can pad their records against questionable opposition.

  • Yarde is facing weaker opposition these days than when he started his career.

  • This was terrible. Outside of putting some money in his pocket, this did absolutely nothing for Yarde.

  • What did he beat? A tin can from foreign soil. Yarde has all “the hype” yet when he steps up he gets beaten! A farce and he moves on. He’s not the best in London and if he did fight a top contender he’d get beat.

  • Yarde really be Arthur the first time and should definitely win in a rematch
