Anthony Yarde v Ricky Summers Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

I have to admit I was very surprised with Anthony Yarde in his last fight.

I have never been his biggest fan, I thought he got a big push when he didn’t necessarily deserve it.

He got a title shot at Artur Beterbiev and I really didn’t think his form warranted a shot.

He lost to Lyndon Arthur before winning a rematch, then he got the Beterbiev fight on the back of beating Stefani Koykov.

Surely it made sense for him to fight Arthur for a third time. I thought he would get battered by Beterbiev.

Part of me wanted him to lose heavily (not hurt) to show he was out of his depth. I couldn’t have been more wrong. He took the fight to the champion until he was stopped in the eighth.

Yarde can take a lot of confidence from that fight, plus he has proved a lot of his doubters, myself included, that he has the quality to become world champion.

I cannot see Ricky Summers testing him that much.

He has a record of 19 wins, three defeats and one draw with six of his wins coming by way of knockout.

There is no way he is getting a seventh knockout. I expect Yarde to go through the motions and show the traits that made people doubt him.

He will do enough and claim a sixth-round knockout to move closer to another title shot – although it won’t be an impressive display.
