As this fight is in Russia Yarde is going to be facing the most juiced to the gills version of kov possible.
They’ll definitely pull some shenanigans. Put him up in shitty hotel miles from the venue, “forget” to send a car for him, stuff like that.

I just be surprised if Yarde goes through with this.

FOr all the bluster and confidence - when reality sets in - they might pull out.

Aleksei Papin (11-0, 10KOs) vs Ilunga Makabu has been added to this card. Hopefully BT will show it.
Makabu is always entertaining.

Clearly Papin doesn't have the form-line of soon-to-be Dubois conquerer, Tetteh, but anybody know much about him?

Me too.

Sounds weird but it's the fight I am most intrigued about after Ruiz and Joshua rematch.
So far, this is my most anticipated fight of the year. Plenty of questions about Yarde are going to be answered.
Despite the step up in class why do I feel the upset is on the cards? ......... Has Tunde convinced me there's a lion in the camp? :lol:

War Yarde!!! :bbb
Same, I'm right up for this and until yesterday had forgotten Makubu was on the undercard.

I may be losing the plot, but I also dont think Tunde is as mad as he'd have us all believe.

Certainly is the moment of truth for the pair of them.

so we have an untested fighter that apparently does not even spar going to the home country of an absolute killer, one with the absolute highest level of experience. to top it all russia has the laxest drug testing in the world and kov has some history there.

this is only going one way, kovalev by brutal ko. really looking forward to it though.
