    Burton has hyped himself up for long enough based on losing to Buglioni, who in turn was rogered by Callum Johnson

    It is time he stepped up to the plate, rather than facing bums in marking time fights, and the time for him to be talking about a Yarde fight has long gone now. Yarde is onto bigger and better things with his ranking and the up coming Kovalev fight.

    Right now my money would be on Yarde to put Burton to sleep

    Travis Reeves is Yarde's best win. Serious question is whether Burton can beat Reeves or not actually, because who is the best fighter than Burton has beaten? Its probably Miles Shinkwin

    Fair point shinkwin is his best win but Reeves isn't exactly a win that sud put u in a mandatory position for a world title.. burton yarde was and is still a good fight. The fact yarde has gone down a route of avoiding the British title and European title will imo hamper him wen he steps into a real 50-50 fight. He hasn't been tested and had it all his own way at the level his operated.

    They've been dragging them up from smw and whilst you could argue it's a easy way to get yourself up into the world rankings and then eventually mandatory, you havnt had any real tests along the way.
    The other thing is that now you've reached your destination, you are now fighting career lhw. Yarde is known to be small in stature, he will now be getting in with guys who have serious height and reach advantage. Yarde just won't posess the necessary skills required to work your way onto the inside of the taller guys who will look to box you off.

    Hearn has confirmed that Burton is going to be offered the Buatsi fight on August 31. If he turns that down then it's pointless talking about him any further.

    There are only so many times that you can say the whole world is ducking you, and instead turning down those fights and fight nobodies....in 6 rounders instead.

    Burton has reached that point now.

    Let’s file him under below British level with big ego unless he takes the Buatsi fight

    It's not through want of trying is it? He lost to Buglioni, got absolutely deserted and left for dead by Hearn

    And who has Yarde fought?

    Both have fought nobodies, the difference is Burton is willing to fight Yarde and Yarde has declined when it was offered to him.

    Other fights Yarde has declined: Kovalev 1st time, Beterbiev, Sullivan Barrera, Callum Johnson, Joshua Buatsi

    In fact Burton and his team rolled up to Yarde in Vegas and lil Anthony froze.

    The only reason team Yarde is taking this fight now is because the Russians have somehow put up an extraordinary amount of money. This is a classic textbook "Cashout" fight.

    Lets see what hes like on this MTK card tonight. Bit of a sliding doors moment tho. Fighting in Bolton with a few tables around compared to Yarde who looks like he could be getting a Vegas date.
