Both knockout specialists, the undefeated Beterbiev has won all 18 of his professional fights via KO, and Yarde has racked up 22 KOs over a 23-2 career. It’s likely to be an exciting match-up — plus we’ll get another title fight before the main event in WBA flyweight champion Artem Dalakian vs. David Jimenez.

When is Beterbiev vs. Yarde? Date, Time, Location
Beterbiev vs. Yarde is happening tonight, Saturday, Jan. 28 at the Wembley Arena in London.
Because it’s broadcasting from England, the event is scheduled to begin slightly early for U.S. viewers at 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT. Beterbiev and Yarde’s bout should get underway around 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT.
Beterbiev vs. Yarde Odds, Undercard
Although Yarde is a very accomplished fighter, he’ll enter the ring with steep underdog odds. As of writing, Vegas has the British boxer at +630 against Beterbiev’s -1250.
Yarde went pro in 2015, racking up 18 straight wins before losing to Sergey Kovalev in his first world title challenge for the WBO light-heavyweight belt. Since then he’s been defeated once more, losing by split decision to Lyndon Arthur in 2020. Then, in 2021, Yarde won a rematch against Arthur, claiming the Commonwealth and WBO Inter-Continental light-heavyweight titles.
“I never back down from a challenge, and Anthony Yarde is a top contender who asked for this fight,” said Beterbiev. “I look forward to fighting in London for the first time since the Olympics. Yarde called me ‘slow’ after my fight with Joe Smith Jr., but slow and steady wins the race. And on January 28, I will win in London.”
Beterbiev — now 18-0 with 18 KOs — has been accumulating titles since winning the IBF belt in 2017. In 2019, he took the WBC title from Oleksandr Gvozdyk, and, in June of last year, he nabbed Joe Smith Jr.’s WBO title. This run makes WBA-holder Dmitry Bivol an obvious opponent for Beterbiev, but conflicting streaming rights obligations are keeping that fight from happening.
Before Beterbiev vs. Yarde is a string of solid bouts, including another championship fight between Artem Dalakian and David Jimenez for the former’s WBA flyweight title. Here’s the full Beterbiev vs. Yarde undercard happening tonight:
Artem Dalakian (c) vs. David Jimenez — WBA flyweight title
Willy Hutchinson vs. Emil Markic — WBO Inter-Continental light-heavyweight title
Karol Itauma vs. Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna — WBC International light-heavyweight title
Charles Frankham vs. Joshua Ocampo — Super-featherweights
Umar Khan vs. Sandeep Singh Bhatti — Featherweights
Sean Noakes vs. Santiago Garces — Welterweights
Tommy Fletcher vs. Darryl Sharp — Cruiserweights
