    No it's a completely different situation. I don't criticise Hearn for rating his fighters stupidly high, it's to be expected. I slate him when he comes out and calls Wilder a "keyboard warrior" and mocks him in so many other ways and then expresses shock when he can't sign him to a fight deal.

    As I said, this is a completely different situation. My interpretation of Tunde's behaviour recently is that I think he is trying to take the focus off of Yarde so he can fight almost with no pressure. Tunde is doing all the big talking, not Yarde. You can see that in this forum alone, with posts about Tunde become more frequent.

    With Hearn, David Haye put it best when he went on the apples and pears rant. Unlike Tunde, Hearn doesn't play to the cameras to take pressure away from his fighters, he does it because he craves the limelight so desperately. He's a promoter who should back his fighter but be more neutral when talking about other fighters because he needs them for his own business interests and we saw how badly that backfired this year with Wilder.

    Anyway, it's a shame you've brought Hearn into this. As I said, Tunde is a trainer whose interest lies with one fighter. He's making these dramatic statements because he knows the fans will latch onto it and direct their criticism towards him rather than Yarde. You can see from a mile off what he is trying to do here, although I concede that Tunde is a delusional man anyway.

    You’ve just went round in circles and not addressed the point. You had a go at Hearn for saying Crolla had a chance against Loma. When Tunde says Yarde has more skill than Andre Ward and is a cross between RJJ/Tyson/Mayweather you defend him.

    Lol Tunde is the ultimate troll. If Yarde beats Kovalev this forum will go into meltdown.

    Absolute chancers.

    I have no problem with him hyping up Yarde’s attributes but the way Tunde does it is just disrespectful. Andre Ward is an ATG, don’t say you’re more skilful than him. If he wants to talk tripe, say he reminds him of Andre Ward or whoever. Kovalev as far has I know hasn’t said anything disrespectful about Yarde yet Tunde is being disrespectful of Kovalev. If he thinks he can beat him, fine, but do it solely by talking about Yarde, not saying that Kovalev gasses after 4 rounds and is past it. He should watch Kovalev’s last performance where he didn’t drop a round and won his title back.

    For this sort of thing to work it needs to be borderline believable, or have a little kernel of truth somewhere in it. But I don't see how this is deflecting pressure away from Yarde. The guy isn't much of a household name anyway, and everyone paying any attention who follows boxing would just laugh at it. It heaps pressure on Yarde by putting him into a position whereby expectations are stratospheric.

    Like a football coach saying a kid he works with is the next Messi, but better. Does absolutely nobody any good whatsoever.

    Tunde is just a guy not to be taken too seriously.

    He’s playing a character, and in some respects he does make some valid points, but he doesn’t have the charm to pull it off without getting bashed for it.

    Tunde's interview is borderline hero worship - they are in for a rude awakening a long way from home
