Artur Beterbiev Form

Artur Beterbiev is the WBC, IBF and WBO world light-heavyweight champion and has an 18-0 record, with all 18 wins coming by knockout.

Beterbiev, who was born in Russia but fights out of Canada, won his first world title in November 2017.

He knocked out Enrico Kolling in the 12th round to win the IBF title and then successfully retained it with a fourth round stoppage of Callum Johnson and a fifth-round knockout of Radivoje Kalajdzic.

The 38-year-old then added the WBC title to his collection with a 10th round stoppage of Oleksandr Gvozdyk in October 2019.

Beterbiev did not fight again for almost 18 months due to the pandemic, but he made up for lost time in March 2021 by knocking out Adam Deines in the 10th round.

He then stopped Marcus Browne in the ninth round in December of that year, setting up a unification clash with Joe Smith Jr.

Beterbiev won his sole outing of 2022, stopping Smith Jr inside just two rounds to add the WBO crown to his WBC and IBF titles.

Anthony Yarde Form

Anthony Yarde has a 23-2 (22 KOs) record as he challenges for a world title for the second time.

Yarde won the first 18 fights of his professional career to earn a shot at WBO champion Sergey Kovalev in August 2019.

The 31-year-old Londoner came up short on the night though, as he was knocked out in the 11th round for the first defeat of his career.

Yarde bounced back with a second-round stoppage of Diego Jair Ramirez and then knocked out Dec Spelmen to earn a shot at the Commonwealth title in December 2020.

However, his quest for another world title shot hit another road block as he dropped a split decision to Lyndon Arthur.

Yarde has not lost since though, reeling off three consecutive wins to get back into the title picture.

He stopped Alex Theran inside a round in August 2021, and four months later avenged his loss to Arthur with a fourth-round stoppage win.

The British light-heavyweight then made it three-in-a-row in his sole outing of 2022, knocking out Stefani Koykov in the third round.
