This should be a competitive fight over twelve rounds between two good British Light Heavyweights.
While a lot of people feel Lyndon Arthur’s jab will trouble Yarde I personally think Yarde won’t have too much trouble getting past it and landing his power punches. I don’t think Arthur is that hard to hit and against a big puncher like Yarde thats not a good thing. I think trying to compare Kovalev’s jab and Arthur’s isn’t good logic considering one is a world class fighter and the other a domestic prospect.
I think Anthony Yarde will win this fight by knockout due to his superior power and experience at a higher level. I don’t think Arthur can keep him off for twelve rounds and in the fights I’ve watched hes not hard to hit and likes to box off the ropes a bit too much.
