The undefeated and newly crowned Southern Area champion, fights for his second consecutive title at the Copper Box Arena on July 8, live on BT Sport and BoxNation.
Speaking to BoxNation’s social media team last week, Yarde was in good spirits and urged viewers to place a bet on round 4.

Yarde, who was in the midst of a sit up routine with trainer Tunde Ajayi, also added that the ‘hash tag’ for the fight would be #YouReachITeach.
The hype continues to grow around ‘The Beast’ after he knocked down Chris Hobbs six times on his way to picking up the Southern Area title last month.
