Yarde getting offered $4.2 million to fight Kovalev in his backyard, even if he gets steamrolled he can say he fought the best LHW on the planet

Never let anyone tell you you cant become a boxer, Yarde has set the blue print lol if he somehow wins he will probably get more for a rematch without facing anyone good. Age, experience and amateur pedigree doesnt matter anymore if your in it to make money you can get severely lucky

apparently yarde is getting £4.2m for this fight.

i take back everything i ever said about tunde. the guy is a fucking genius, yarde has made lifetime financial security by boxing taxi drivers. you cant argue with it, hes played a blinder if its true, especially as the rumours are hes chinny (read that on here). what a time to be a boxer.

i wonder if after the inevitable brutal ko he carries on boxing or if he changes trainer and goes the more traditional british, european etc route.

Getting a ranking and eventual shot at a WBO title is much more to do with being with Warren than it is anything else.

oh yeah im sure. realistically tunde and yarde have sleepwalked into an absolute fortune in a fight that they dont deserve. also they are fortunate to be in exactly the right position at exactly the right moment in boxing history. its not going to last forever but some people are making an absolute killing right now!

that said you make your own luck in life, good luck to them, i will definitely be watching more than anything because i havent got any idea whatsoever if yardes any good.

I think it was in dollars, but yeah that's the number floating about.

It makes the inevitability of seeing Tunde being exposed much more bittersweet...
It makes no sense at all. How much did they think Frank was gonna bid if it went that far?

Its idiotic business sense.

If the Russians's are paying Yarde that much money you can bet those Russians will do everything they can to win. Kovvy is going to be indestructible.

Will there be testing in Russia? This fight could be very entertaining.

It's astonishing how little so many people within the sport actually follow it. WTF is Mayweather talking about? He's saying Yarde is a Youtube sensation as if he's not a pro boxer, and then talks about how he looks good in the YT videos "sparring" but he hasn't seen what he can do in the ring. :lol: Tons of Yarde's fights on on Youtube to watch, and he basically doesn't spar. Two of the other older guys in the video knew fuck all too. The actual boxers and the scouse guy at the end actually knew who both men were and had evidently seen something of Yarde.
