Beterbiev vs Yarde: What was said?
Yarde is aware of the difficult task he faces against unbeaten Beterbiev next month.
“It’s the right time for me. I started from nothing and if I have an opportunity, I’ll take it,” he said.
“I have to stop fighting monsters, but I got into this sport to fight the best. Lions have no choice but to hunt if they are hungry.
“Since I started boxing, I haven’t spent more than a week out of the gym. Beterbiev has had over 200 amateur fights and 18 professional fights, but I want to be sharp and focused.
He added: “In the light heavyweight division he has been nothing but a wrecking ball, knocking out all his opponents so far.
“He is very powerful, but I feel that I am faster and by age I am fresher, but in terms of experience I am behind him.”
