Fair play Yarde. A shame there isn't a way he could win a world title and Tunde's fighter loses one.
Credit to Yarde for taking the fight. Now we get to see if he's a lion or was just lyin...
For the record I think Kovalev knocks him out.
Why are people giving Yarde props for FINALLY taking a world title shot after being number 1 for well over a year and turning down other world title shots?
Yarde is doing what most challengers do or at least should do and go and win a title in the champions backyard.
Yarde hasn't got many other options, he won't fight Buatsi or any other decent domestic fighter.
And in my opinion, he is taking on an old and beatable Kov, 36 years old, lost 3 of his last 6.
It was either Kov of one of these..
They are hoping Kov is unmotivated, past caring and they can pinch the title and hold it hostage, just like Cleverly did until they are forced to fight a solid mandatory.. funnily enough that was Kov and we know how that ended.
Does this mean we have to look for other signs of the world to end? Please give me a heads up if it starts raining blood or rising dead around your erea, or even when there's something like a locust plague going on.
Seriously though, glad it actually happens anyway.
I dont think you can moan too much to be fair...a world title fight after 18 fights certainly aint milking it too much. Sure the level of opposition may not have been that high but its the route they decided to go down. Time will tell if its the correct one, he could have milked it longer and waited for Kov to fade further IMO.
He cannot choose his rankings thats outwith his control all he and his team can do is decide how they wanna get to a position to be world champ.
I cannot call it, I have no idea what Yarde is like when its put on him or in with someone of the level of Kov. No idea what Kov has left, he is defo on the decline is it the start of his decline or is he a good bit into it we will also find out.
Can’t wait for people to say Kovalev was shot after Yarde blasts him out with a right hand.
I agree, if he wins that belt is likley being held hostage for a long time, then finally will get given credit when forced into a unification fight.
That's how I can see things unfolding, hope I'm proven wrong!
You don’t need to wait. People are saying it right now. Win or lose he’s not the fighter he once was.
The two best fighters in Europe.
People already making excuses for when Yarde knocks his block off. After saying Yarde was scared to fight anyone lol. Kovalev just boxed Alvarez head off, he is faded but nowhere near shot. Lions.
Yes but the same people in the majority are predicting an easy Kovalev win, regardless of whether they think he’s shot or not.
You are a complete joke, you should leave the forum you are embarrassingly deluded. Are you still in denial that this fight will happen? These quotes are from just last week
I don’t think Kovalev is shot. That win over Alvarez was absolutely class, it was a shut out. Alvarez didn’t get a sniff. Certainly no shame in being edged out by an ATG in Ward either. Credit to Yarde though, i’ll be cheering him on but I believe he’s getting utterly starched in this fight. Hope i’m wrong.
Fair play and good luck to him! He's going to need a small miracle or a knockout to win this though.
Yarde has fought absolutely nobody to prepare him for a fighter like kovalev, I might be wrong but I think its a terrible fight for Yarde. You can't just go from bashing Hungarian taxi drivers to beating top guys like that.
