Beterbiev is the clear favorite in this one and that shouldn't come as a shock to anyone.

Beterbiev vs Yarde Prediction

Boxing fans are in for a treat as Beterbiev and Yarde are undeniably two of the hardest-hitting men in the sport. These fighters are similar in stature and record, but Beterbiev's technique and approach outshine Yarde's. Meanwhile, Yarde's speed and footwork are ahead of Beterbiev's.

One thing sticks out about this bout, though. Yarde has a tendency to let his guard down at times, which obviously works in Beterbiev's favor. The Russian has shown in the past that he can force his opponent to backpedal into the ropes and land one punch after another until he knocks them out.

Backing Beterbiev as a massive -1250 favorite or even backing him to win by knockout at -440 odds comes with a small payout. Shifting gears to picking which round he wins in is a riskier, but wealthier option. Beterbiev has fought in 83 rounds over 18 bouts, making the average length 4.6 rounds.
