What channel is Anthony Yarde vs Sergey Kovalev on tonight? Fight time, TV and live stream


In pursuit of his first world title, Anthony Yarde is taking on the experienced Sergey Kovalev in his own back garden.

The Brit has made the 3000 mile trip to Russia where he will fight Kovalev, who unified the light-heavyweight belts in 2014.

This fight is for the WBO world light-heavyweight title, and comes after Yarde knocked out American Travis Reeves in the fifth round in May.

That was Yarde’s 17th knockout from his 18 fights, and maintained his 100 per cent winning record.

Kovalev, 36, has won 33 of his 37 fights and won by knockout in 28.

Yarde only started boxing when he was 19, and the 28-year-old has enjoyed a monumental rise to the top of the sport.
