Although it is not a title fight, there is a good bout to look at on Saturday for boxing betting.

It’s an all-British affair with Anthony Yarde taking on Lydon Arthur in London.

This is a rematch between the two after Arthur pulled out an upset by topping ‘The Beast from the East’ on points 12 months ago.

Lyndon Arthur Preview – Can Arthur do it again?

It was a split decision that Lyndon Arthur beat Anthony Yarde by when they met in early December last year.

Before the fight, Arthur had injured his right hand, which meant that he leaned heavily on his left-hand jab for the fight.

That proved to be really productive for him.

It ended up with Arthur being able to keep Yarde at bay, because of the more defensive approach.

For the match, Arthur is a quote of 11/10 to come up with another victory* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021).

His opponent should respect him just a little bit more this time around.

‘King Arthur’ holds an unbeaten 19-0 career fight.

He picked up the vacant Commonwealth light-heavyweight title in October 2019 and successfully defended it three times.

This is not a title fight on Saturday.

In that success over Yarde, Arthur retained the title and picked up the vacant WBO Intercontinental light-heavyweight crown too.

Our betting prediction:
Arthur By Decision

Bet at Ladbrokes

* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021)


Arthur wants a world title shot as much as Yarde does and he should take a step closer to that by beating Yarde.

This is the top opponent in this division that he can face and the fact that it is Yarde, of whom big things are expected, it’s even better for Arthur.

What will he do in terms of tactics? Will he use the jab again? Will he switch it up?

In his one fight since beating Yarde, Arthur stopped Davide Faraci with a 9th-round knockout in the summer.

This, however, looks completely as if it will go the distance again.

Arthur by Decision is at 7/4* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021).


Anthony Yarde Preview – Yarde wants revenge

Anthony Yarde firmly believes that he won that first duel with Arthur, which was behind closed doors.

But he was handed the loss and never really looked as if he settled into the fight.

There has been one fight for Yarde since then, beating Alex Therna in the first round of a mismatch in August this year.

So the two fighters are coming in fit and sharp and we can expect another enthralling contest.

Yarde is the narrow 4/6 odds-on favourite for boxing betting* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021).

Had he beaten Arthur, Yarde would have likely had a world title shot by now.

He’s a very hyped boxer, and talk of title fights has been there for the longest time, totally having been pegged as a superstar.

It could still be of course.

However, it looks like Yarde is coming in with a grudge to settle, but will that give him a clear head on the night?

Anthony Yarde did cut a frustrated fighter in that first battle with Arthur. He couldn’t get his clean shots off.

Yarde has a famous track record of stopping opponents.

All but one of his career wins have been by a knockout.

The overall career record for Yarde is 21-2, the losses against Arhuter and a previous one against Sergey Kovalev in which ‘The Beast from the East’ was stopped.

There is a sense that Yarde’s best route to success is going to be by a stoppage.

A Yarde KT, TKO or Disqualification boxing betting option is at 13/8* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021)


Lyndon Arthur vs Anthony Yarde Betting Advice

If Yarde doesn’t get settled into this fight quickly, then the frustrations may kick in once again.

We think that Arthur, who is often underestimated, can do a number on him again.

So for boxing betting, the Arthur to win option is at 11/10* (odds recorded 19:17 GMT 1st December 2021).
