Panel: How do you see Anthony Yarde vs Lyndon Arthur going?

Anthony Yarde
What's your prediction for the Anthony Yarde vs Lyndon Arthur fight?

Andy Clarke
Commentator

I’ve always liked this fight a lot. Arthur’s jab is key. He has to be able to keep Yarde off him, to gain his respect, and I think he has the snap to do that. But I also believe Yarde is harder to hit clean than people think. It will be close but I’ll pick Yarde to stay patient and take a tight one on points.

Mickey Helliet
Manager and promoter

Lyndon Arthur’s long reach, punch variety, movement and fast hands make him a huge potential banana skin for Yarde. Definitely a very tough next fight. I’d have Yarde as a slight favourite but nowhere near as strong as the bookies have him.

Paul Edwards
Former British champion

It’s a great fight. The experience might come into play but I’m going for Lyndon Arthur on points. I think that he’s a better boxer. He’s got something about him. I think he’s going to be a star. I do like Yarde, he’s a beast.

Paul Smith
Former world title challenger

Lyndon Arthur’s a tough kid. Probably both of them are made for each other. Arthur’s got a chance of doing it. I think Yarde needs to have improved from the Sergey Kovalev fight. Arthur could beat Yarde because of the styles but I think I’d go for Yarde on points.

Darren Barker
IBF titlist

It’s an intriguing match up but one where I fancy Yarde. When he gets in full flow he can be a nightmare for the best of them. Jazz them up how you want.
