    I’m going for Yarde by stoppage.

    We need to come together and do a proper round by round next week!

    Kovalev's got home advantage and that's HUGE but his power, skill set and most importantly experience will make pretty light work of Yarde.

    Also corners, in my opinion Tunde is a liability, delusional and will also be exposed badly.


    Kovalev inside 5.

    I think Kov just picks him apart for 6/7 rounds and then if Tunde has any competence he would put the towel in. I don’t think he has though so I imagine Yarde then is brutally KO’d.

    This is about as close as Canelo vs Khan, or Loma vs Crolla.

    Remember guys there's a reason why Yarde avoided the entire British and Euro circuits.

    Kovalev stops him in 5 rounds or once reality kicks in and Yarde is taking a pounding I think he’ll pull out with an iffy ‘injury’ at the end of one of the rounds.

    If Krusher still operating at 80% or above his best levels, he will stop Yarde in 5-6 rounds.

    Yarde will need a KO to win the fight and it is possible although he remains untested with a CV full of Ritz Hotel puddings.

    Yarde is a bit of an unknown at this level. He's younger, fresher, and seems to have some pop.
    Having said that, this is about levels. Yarde has a small chance if Kov hasn't taken this fight seriously, and not trained right.
    This won't go the distance, that's for sure. I've got it 85-15 in favour of a Kov stoppage.

    All I keep thinking is what a blinder tunde has played. He's gotton yarde who on paper was a novice to the fight game but had the looks for pin up /marketablity which is half of what makes a professional fighter. He has to bring something to the table which makes people interested in you.
    Tunde has probably handpicked all the fighters, yarde has had as opponents as well.
    He's (tunde) kept yarde away from the British scene and it's hard to find anyone in the UK apart from tunde himself who has even sparred yarde. This no one in u.k has any first hand info on his true ability.
    He's played the siege mentality and made it a game of us against them with yarde and the lions in the camp and consequently cementing his own security as the leader of the pride. He's drilled yarde with this positive energy /self belief malarkey which is been reinforced by the fact that yarde is unbeaten, has had good sponsorship deals, (far better than 99.9% of fighters at his lvl).
    And he is now mandatory and on his way to the biggest fight of his life with a big payday to top it all off.
    Tunde will of told yarde that this all part of yardes destiny, which was revealed to tunde whilst he was meditating, and in perfect harmony with a higher power.
    All yarde has to do is think positive and have self belief.
    It will become apparent to yarde after a rd or two that his self belief is no where near as important as experience and not just that, it's experience at a good level.
    All the moves that kov is going to use will be outside of yarde experience, he will realise that this game is about levels not fantasizing.
    Tunde has played a blinder as I believe tundes goals are to line his own pockets, that's why he's so secretive and holds the siege mentality.
    He wants to keep the rest of the boxing world at arms length. As the further away they are, the less he gets questioned.
    I wish Anthony all the best tho, I think that for him, tunde has delivered, so it's hard to call him out on his b.s.
    The only chance I give him is if kov has either totally taken his eye off the ball, which tbf, the incident on the airplane recently makes it look as tho there may be a bit of evidence to say he is taking his eye off the ball. Or he's totally overlooking this fight and has hardly trained. But if we get the kov we all know, this fight is only going one way. K.o!

    My heart wants this to be a competetive fight but my head says Kovalev stops him in the opening six rounds. Hope I'm wrong.
