Round and about
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.
The biggest dimwit of them all (and that's saying something!) is 'legendary cut man' Stitch Duran. He's not just totally ignorant about every single fight but he seems really, really proud of it. It's the same in every damn video that shower put out. Why keep asking the silly old duffer. :lol:

Exactly. Massive pride at being a complete ignoramus is always odd.

First time I have watched an actual fight of Yarde..other then the Ko highlights.

Yarde looks like he learned to box by watching youtube videos of Mayweather.

His balance is good..but has a bad habit of backing away in a straight line. Shoulder role does not really work for him, it does not help him evade punches or block them he gets easily caught, whole purpose of the shoulder role is to role with the punches and counter. His Jab not sure what to make of that not much power behind it just sticks it out for its own sake ,not a range finder either. Vicious uppercut though. He does not put his full body weight behind all his punches, but when he does do it the left hook to the body and overhand right to the head are fairly good punches.

Given his physique and stature he would be better learning boxing by watching youtube videos of a young Darnell "Ding a Ling" Wilson. Just walk forward and throw bombs like the guy stole something from you.

He does not have the I.Q or grounding to emulate Mayweathers moves.

Okay after reading alot on this forum of this Tunde Ajayi...character I looked at a video of his padwork.

Oh my goodness lol...this guy is like a 14 year old who is trying to emulate the padwork of Roger Mayweather. But not having a clue about what he is doing no technique work no practicing of combinations.. Just moving his hands really fast and tapping Yardes gloves and body.

No wonder Yarde does not put power behind all his punches or jab...Tunde Ajayi does not give him a chance Yarde is too preoccupied getting tapped all over the body by those pads. Kind of a weird massage technique or something.

Wow....I gotta rate this guy Tunde just for his hustle....lol.

Yarde could be a pretty good wordl class fighter if he hires a proper trainer.
