    Don't worry there'll be lions in the graveyard after Kovalev deals with them.

    Real good point this.
    The opposition can soon get in your head and if your abroad in a place as hostile as Russia, you can end up beat before you've fought.
    The constant getting badgered by locals and things not going your way can soon bring an air of negativity into the team.
    Before you know it, your complaining about everything and not liking anything that's going on, it can soon take your momentum away.
    You need a strong team who no what to expect and deal with it accordingly,. Experience is the key here

    This fight depends entirely on how much Kovalev has declined.

    He's fresh from putting on his best boxing display since November 2016 so he has actually improved in recent years and has not declined that much since his prime.

    Yarde will most likely have to knock kovalev out..he's not getting a points win in russia. He will have done well if it's even slightly competitive imo.

    Firmly supporting Yarde here
    Be a fantastic win if he manages to pull it off

    I really hope he does the previously unthinkable, I think he can, we just don't know enough about Yarde because of who he has previously shared a ring with.

    So do I. I'd much prefer yarde as champion, it would be great for us all, another belt in u.k and I do like yarde and I'll be over the moon should he do it but it's a big task taking everything into consideration.
