Rising star Anthony Yarde opened the big Canelo v Smith show in Dallas on Saturday night with a bang.

'The Beast' dispatched experienced American Rayford Johnson with a crushing short, swift left hook to earn victory on his first oversees bout in fine style.

In doing so Yarde extended his unbeaten record to 8-0, with seven of those victims coming inside the distance.

Recently turned 25 years old, the Londoner enhances his reputation as one of the brightest U.K prospects with each passing performance.

Fans will be eager to see Yarde back out and can look forward to another dazzling display on our October 22nd show in Cardiff headlined by Liam Williams v Ahmet Patterson.
