Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 8 BETERBIEV STOPPAGE

Beterbiev’s jab takes over again and it looks like Yarde’s shots might have lost some of their pop.

Yarde is caught and down by a great right hand. He looks to his corner and it could be all over here.

Artur Beterbiev wins, round 8.

Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 7

Yarde’s conditioning really is impressive here, especially given some of the shots he’s taken. Beterbiev’s too, but we knew that.

Yarde leaps in and lands a left and then a right. If he’s not putting the champion down, he is draining him methodically.

Beterbiev is starting to look the more damaged man here. They trade to end the round, with the momentum switching as quick as the punches land. A classic, punishing round.

Yarde’s gum shield out again. Beterbiev skips in the corner as he waits.

Both are landing here and Yarde still has the power to hurt the champion, but his defence is starting to lack and it’s turning into a show of pure bravery. The jab from Beterbiev is lethal, and Yarde’s eye is close to closing.

Big left hook from Yarde into the final minute and Beterbiev holds on. The crowd are on their feet. Is he dazed? It looks like it. Unbelievable effort from the Brit here, but he’s hurt in the last 10 seconds and almost goes down. Cracking fight.

Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 4

Big shot to start the round off that wobbles Yarde. Beterbiev landing at will and Yarde is really struggling here but fighting back valiantly.ย His guard is useless against the champion’s pinpoint accuracy.

Things slow down halfway through the round. Beterbiev is in control until Yarde fires through with two big shots. Beterbiev catches him straight back and how nobody has touched the canvas yet is quite incredible. Yarde’s face beginning to swell.

Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 3

Beterbiev really is taking one to land one – not many people would do that with Anthony Yarde. Yarde’s gum shield comes out thirty seconds in and the action is paused briefly.

Yarde is expending a lot of energy here – it’s paying off for him now, but how long can he keep it up? Beterbiev not wasting any opportunity but still getting caught on the way in. Close fight so far.

Beterbiev lands a big looping hook on the bell that drew a look from Yarde. He’ll take every one of these 60 seconds now.

Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 2

Beterbiev looks slightly marked under the left eye, likely from a Yarde hook – a shot that he’s continued to land into the second.

Things really start to heat up halfway through and Yarde must get off the ropes. He does and lands a nice uppercut. Beterbiev growing into this though. The challenger lands some good shots, but the champion’s power looks dangerous. Fantastic fight so far.

Beterbiev vs Yarde: Round 1

Both fighters come out fidgety with Beterbiev not scared to close the distance. It may work in Yarde’s favour, who lands with a couple early. A good start from the challenger, but he’ll need plenty more of that to deter the champion. Beterbiev lands something of significance with a few seconds to go.

18 fights, 18 wins knockout. Very explosive puncher. Weโ€™re talking pound for pound arenโ€™t we? Real elite.
