Opinion

What’s your prediction for the Lyndon Arthur vs Anthony Yarde rematch?

We ask the Boxing News panel how they see Saturday's Lyndon Arthur vs Anthony Yarde rematch going

Jon Thaxton
British and European champion

Tough to call. I’m going to go for Arthur again. He won the first time, it was close. But I think Arthur just had his number, just had a bit too much and now he’s got the confidence. I think you’ll see a better Lyndon Arthur.

Darren Barker
IBF belt-holder

I do rate Yarde, he’s a very good fighter. I think he lacks a world class coach. If Arthur remains disciplined, he’s got to be switched on. Try and mentally drain Anthony Yarde. Arthur’s got to be on his game again. If he is, and I expect him to do so, I think he’ll win on points again.

Paul Smith
Former super-middleweight contender

Yarde needs to leave his coach. He’s not going to learn anything new. I can’t see him changing much from the first fight, I can’t see him adapting. I’ll be backing Arthur again on points.

Chris McKenna
Sports reporter

It’s a difficult one to call but I like Arthur again. I expect Yarde to come out all guns blazing and try to take Arthur out of his rhythm but this time he has a right hand to help keep Yarde off. It’s a great match up and hopefully it will be an exciting fight.
