It seems that any serious prospect is, at this stage in his career, a potential upset in the making for Kovalev. I recall Kovalev looking off and distracted the last time he was fighting in Chelyabinsk, and would not be surprised at all to see the same again. He turned in a fine boxing performance against a fairly limited opponent in Alvarez last time out. Still, he didn't exactly show the world that the Krusher of old is back. The question is then: is Anthony Yarde the serious prospect to snatch the advantage on the declining booze hound? I was curious until I saw a video of what goes on in the gym he trains out of. It's hilarious. Yarde reminds me of crossfit guys who walk into a gym and light up a bag with terrible form and a would be bad boy vibe who soon see their moment of truth in the first minute of their first spar. Oh wait, Yarde doesn't spar. Wearing a grill while your trainer slaps your gloves with mitts and horses around with you in the ring probably won't make you a champ; we'll see how hungover Kovalev is fight night.
