    I like the guy and I certainly don't wish him ill or want to see him humiliated. I do think he's being very carefully matched and suspect this is for good reason. I think ranking him 1 with the WBO says more about Frank's connections there than it does about Yarde's true status.

    I just want a competitive opponent who can throw back and test Yarde's defences with plenty of notice to put in a decent training camp. Hosea Burton was mentioned, that sounds like a better test than some of the guys he's been facing.

    Buatsi. Hearn and Buatsi want it but I doubt Warren and Yarde's managment do.

    Hopefully Callum Johnson, I'd love to see him knock Yarde's peanut head across the ring with one of his hooks.

    I refer you all to my thread on the British forum, which investigates the increasingly growing theory that Yarde isn't actually a profesional boxer at all

    Either that or it will be Israel Duffus

    Seeing as Yarde is number 2 in the WBO rankings, lets see him against Joe Smith Jr.

    I would also be interested in him facing Umar Salamov.

    These are opponents who are ranked 8th and 9th with the WBO. So it shouldnt be too much difficulty for Yarde:stirrpot

    Ha ha, Smith Jr and Pascal would both tenderise Yarde at this point....
    The Burton fight would be good but I feel Yarde may need to step-up a bit even before taking that one! Ha ha Madness that his ranking is so high.

    Probably the most likely scenario is that Warren makes a Yarde-Kessler superfight at Wembley, with Mikkel completing the trilogy with Froch late 2019.....on a cruise ship.....

    I wonder what this means for the WBO mandatory situation. The mandatory is up next after the Kova/Alvarez rematch and ,whoever wins, I can't really see Yarde take that huge leap at all.
