Lyndon Arthur v Anthony Yarde II Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

This isn’t meant to be a dig at Anthony Yarde, but he might not be as good as he thinks he is. He thought he was going to walk straight through Lyndon Arthur when they met last December at Church House in London.

He definitely didn’t do that. In fact, he lost on points and still to this day he goes around telling everyone he won that fight. Well, Yarde, you didn’t. Arthur fought the perfect fight. He didn’t let Yarde settle and kept him at bay. Arthur deserved the win and I think he will do it again.

In a perfect world, Yarde was meant to win the fight and then get another world title shot and go on to be a superstar. He didn’t win, and unfortunately for Arthur, he didn’t get the opportunities that we all know Yarde would have got. If Yarde wins this one, I can guarantee he will be thrown into the title picture.

Arthur spoiled the party last time out, and I am backing him to do the same on December 5. The powers-that-be – in my opinion – want Yarde to win so they can either get him another title shot or a third fight against Arthur.

King Arthur has yet to taste defeat as a professional. Since beating Yarde, he has only fought once, and he stopped Davide Faraci in the ninth round to retain his WBO Intercontinental light heavyweight title.

Yarde has also only had one fight since losing to Arthur. He stopped Alex Theran in the opening round after flooring him twice. He won’t be able to do that to Arthur. This will be a war, but I am backing Arthur to win this one on points again. I wouldn’t be surprised if we got an identical result of a split decision.

Yarde will be eager to prove he is the better fighter, but I just think Arthur is the smarter fighter and he will be able to frustrate Yarde again. If Yarde loses his cool, Arthur will be able to take over and control the fight and dictate the pace of the contest.

Arthur to win this one definitely.

Lyndon Arthur v Anthony Yarde II Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Lyndon Arthur: “It’s a case of getting this fight out of the way and then the world title next year. When I say that I don’t mean it’s a fight I am overlooking. It’s huge because it’s the win that brings world titles. Yarde and myself are fighters and just want to settle our business. I guess Yarde and myself are the same sort of people and whenever I have met him there isn’t any animosity. He is in my division, and we have to fight.”
