Anthony Yarde vs. Walter Gabriel Sequeira Set, October 20

By Elliot Foster

Anthony Yarde will be back in the ring in less than three weeks’ time.

The undefeated light-heavyweight, who holds a lofty position in the WBO rankings, was most recently in action in June and holds a record of 16-0 with all but one coming inside the distance.

Yarde, 27, stopped Polish southpaw Dariusz Sek inside seven rounds at the O2 Arena in London, exclusively live on BT Sport.


And he will fight on the same platform again on October 20 at the Brentwood Centre in Essex.

The Ilford man, nicknamed ‘The Beast’, is set to defend his WBO Inter-Continental title against Argentina’s Walter Gabriel Sequeira (21-4, 15 KOs) at the top of a card being promoted by Frank Warren.

Sequeira, 31, was last in action in April when he retained his Argentinian title with a sixth-round stoppage of Gaston Alejandro Vega.

Also on the card, there will be action for the Joe Mullender, whose last outing came against Lee Churcher for the vacant IBF European middleweight title last December, and the vacant British title will be at stake when welterweight pair Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran square off.

Bradley Skeete, the man who recently relinquished the Lonsdale belt but was stopped inside two rounds when he challenged Kerman Lejarraga for the vacant European welterweight belt back in April, will return on the bill, while there is a super-middleweight contest between rivals Umar Sadiq and Zak Chelli set.

Further details regarding the card will be revealed in due course.

Not exactly sure what he's going to learn from this fight and taking fights like these. Padding up records with no real testing opposition is just delaying the obvious as soon as he faces someone who can move and also…

[QUOTE=redmish;19153680]If he was with matchroom, yarde would gave fought on some massive undercards in stadiums by now. He chose Frank Warren and is fighting in the Brentwood centre in Essex. Poor choice. Say what you like about Eddie Hearn but…

[QUOTE=VatoMulatto;19154145]Let's make [B]Joshua Buats vs Yarde[/B].[/QUOTE] Frank Warren reply was why? “Hearn should focus on his own fighters” but he wants his fighter Fury to fight Joshua.

This guy sure gets a lot of hype for someone who only fights bums.
