    If it doesn’t happen and Kovalev vacates then I hope we at least get Yarde vs Boesel for the title, I don’t want to see Yarde vs some blown up polish super middleweight for the vacant belt as the wbo rankings are pretty poor compared to the other governing bodies

    Wouldn't Ramirez get the shot?

    That was before the first purse bid, it may have ended up a PPV card if it had that fight also

    Purse bids tomorrow evening. Any predictions?

    FW to win and Kovalev to pull out is my guess.

    It might be, it might not be. Let’s be honest none of us have a clue. Whatever it is it’s pathetic. 3 months of “deep negotiations”, just how deep are they trying to get? They must be at the earths core by now.

    These negotiations are deeper than AJs thoughts the day after losing his titles to Andy Ruiz.

    How "might it be" Yardes fault, explain this to me.

    The fight was SIGNED and AGREED by both sides for June 29th, and the RUSSIAN ORGANISERS called it off due to issues on their side.

    Explain to me how you blame Yarde for the Russians failing to come up with the money and venue and date agreed.

    None of it makes sense:

    Why would Kovalev choose the unknown Yarde in the Twilight of his career?

    Why would Yarde’s team jump from blown up super middles ranked outside the top 30 to fighting a recent P4P top 10?

    Who’s funding the fight to be held in Chelyabinsk, Russia?

    That is true, but given it has been the Russian side delaying etc. It appears to be their end.

    Climb down off your defensive. I haven’t criticised/blamed Yarde, We simply don’t know. Have you seen any signed documents? I haven’t.
