Beterbiev vs Yarde LIVE! Boxing Fight Stream, TV Channel, Latest Updates and Undercard Results
Artur Beterbiev takes on Anthony Yarde in a massive clash for the unified light-heavyweight world titles in London tonight. Wembley Arena hosts a much-anticipated showdown in the stacked 175-pound division, with one of boxing’s most feared and formidable champions competing on British soil for the first time since losing to Oleksandr Usyk at the Olympics of 2012.
Beterbiev is putting his WBC, IBF and WBO belts on the line and will be confident of extending his frightening record of winning 18 professional fights via stoppage. The clinical Russian is a heavy favorite to stay undefeated and put on a huge undisputed contest against WBA champion Dmitry Bivol later this year, although mandatory challenger Yarde should not be underestimated as a heavy hitter himself who doesn’t has nothing at all to lose in his second world title tilt.
Tonight’s undercard in the capital saw Karol Itauma stopped in a huge upset, as he suffered the first defeat of his professional career. Artem Dalakian defended his WBA flyweight title with a points win over David Jimenez as Moses Itauma’s professional debut then lasted 14 seconds as he stopped his opponent.

Tyson Fury cracks up at ringside, just to say he doesn’t take this very seriously. Well Named.
“It’s been going on for too long, way too long,” says Tommy. Okay.
Paul brought clothes. Very predictably, they both rush in and security has to separate them. Both follow the script perfectly.
Fury says, “He will never box again. I’m not 50, I’m not 40, I’m not an MMA guy. I swear to God, you finished February 26th.
Paul responds, says Fury has only fought “cab drivers” and has nothing but “fake confidence”.
Well, first we have a little side show. Chisora among those in the ring for some reason.
Either way, it’s Tommy Fury and Jake Paul in the ring. We’re going to see these two bashing each other for a few minutes, before their fight next month.
Fury prancing topless – I don’t know why.
Itauma’s reaction after the fight…
Not even a smile from Itauma as he is interviewed after the fight.
He’s clearly very depressed after his brother’s loss earlier tonight, he seemed to be fully focused on that.
It must not have been easy for Moïse to manage that in the locker room before his debut.
The left hand did the damage. The first staggered Bode, and the second hit the gloves but was still powerful enough to knock him down.
We learned absolutely nothing from this – Bode didn’t feel like it at all. 14 seconds the official time.
Bode is still sitting in his corner and taking oxygen. This fight probably should have taken place about two hours ago.
Itauma wins by stoppage in the first round!
ALSO AFTER 12 SECONDS!
Dear me. Wobbling suddenly, knocked down a second… AND IT’S REMOVED!
It really wasn’t worth warming up to.
Here we are!
Itauma on his professional debut, four rounds of heavyweight action ahead. Or at least it’s expected, Itauma plans to finish his job much faster than that.
They are in the ring, about to engage in this final fight on the undercard.
Moses Itauma vs. Marcel Bode is next, the final fight before getting to the main event.
Recall that Itauma’s brother Karol was knocked out earlier tonight, losing for the first time in his professional career.
Itauma, who believes he will become the world’s youngest heavyweight champion, is making his debut very soon.
