    I have thought from the start he looked good but last night he was top quality imo...That short left hook lead was superb...

    I understand people want everything now but he looks like he is progressing very well to me..

    Beast of a man

    Why the hate? Talks about Kovalev, fights guys barely ranked in the top fifty, and doesn't look that good whilst doing so.

    Yarde is a frustrating throwback to the days when prospects fought dross for years. The public, boxing fans and casuals like, have become more used to seeing fighters taking on challenges on a more regular basis these days.

    Personally it's because he cost me about 800 quid last night . ...think its because after what 16 or 17 fights we should know a fair bit about him and his level by now. ... And we still have no idea .. Has somehow managed to get a number one ranking off the back of fighting absolutely no one at all and bypassing nearly every domestic challenge along the way

    And that lions in the camp **** he was screaming last night, made me think he's an even bigger ****

    because he fights average to below average guys.. then him and his camp brag about how good he is... plus lions in the camp is annoying as hell and cringeworthy

    I feel like he is just playing the system like someone with a council house.

    Talks a good game but

    Won’t fight for the British title, Euro title or world title so what’s the point???

    He will cash out soon

    I don’t think it’s so much hate for him as hate for Fwank’s matchmaking as well as his ridiculous ranking with some of the governing bodies.

    He looked decent last night

    His lions in the camp nonsense is horribly ironic considering he fights no bodys

    And I don't even blame Frank to much with the match making
    His trainer and Manager is to blame for that

    Frank will go along with it as his list of prospect's is short so plays along rather than upset the apple cart

    I didn’t see the fight. Can someone share what the ‘lions in the camp’ thing is about?

    The Yarde camp are a bit corny in their attempt to hype Ant ! They talk this and that with rubbish about Lions in the camp .. quite harmless I suppose . The issue for me is the WBO crazy rating of Yarde and you argue that’s not Yarde’s fault ! However Yarde’s camp use the rating to avoid fighting rated British fighter but won’t fight top ten fighters because of his limited experience! Forgetting all of this based on last night performance against a decent, albeit a 38 year old , boxer Yarde showed he is a decent prospect. Will he fight Kovalev this year ? I think not but not my call.

    Hasn't fought anyone in the top 50, has avoided all British rivals whilst holding the #1 WBO position hostage
