    Kovalev vs Yarde

    Absolutely fair play to Yarde.

    Well boxing is a business and fair play to tunde, he's done extremely good with his product. All the way to a massive payday now guaranteed and picked up good sponsorship deals along the way. All this with a lad who most of us don't have down as a world level boxer, and hasnt had to have no proper fights yet to get to the pot of gold. It's a bit of a master stroke from funds tbf.
    Unless kov is absolutely done this will be a beatdown and yarde will probably end up looking silly.
    I do hope it doesn't turn out like that as I do like yarde but I can't see it going any other way.

    Well done. For once we are actually getting a great fight for the fans.

    Also now Canelo is free and looking for a fight, Frank and BJS can make an offer.

    Yep, what a coup that would be.

    I'm 100 percent sure Yarde gets absolutely bodied but even with that knowledge I'm quite intrigued by the fight.

    I think a lot of people owe me an apology, I broke this news before anyone saw it coming

    After Yarde destroys Kovalev I want to see Yarde v Eubank Jr at LHW for the world title. Eubank has said he’d fight at LHW in the future. Great potential fight for the fans.

    good stuff, a great fight to see, one for everyone to tune in to. We get to see what level Yarde is, see if Kovalev is past it.

    We could have another big name to promote from the UK. Lets all get behind Yarde it would be great.

    Actually wait .....thats the mrs birthday weekend, were away to Tenerife for the long weekend!? Ah F%^K OFF !!

    Overated fight this one Kov is past it and Yarde is bum. forget it guys!

    :)

    Is one where for boxing over here it would be a great result if he won.

    You would also imagine Canello would take the opinion Kov was past it and Yarde could be an easy night.

    Makes all the late nights in the office investigating sources worth it when you get to break a story like this for the fans

    Kovalev in a KO4Clev like demolition job. Krusher KO2. This will be hard to watch.

    In the same boat. I am interested in just how Yarde does considering he's never really had a test, and is being thrown straight into this
