“If my system didn’t work, how come Anthony is getting so good without doing any meaningful sparring?”

This probably explains why Yarde hasn't been showing any improvement for a fair while now. Surely decent sparring is vital if you want to be able to fight at the highest level?

Something else that did concern me was an interview, (with Yarde), I read where Yarde claimed he gets to decide when he's done enough training, because he knows his own limits, etc,etc. Shades of Eubank Jr there... So, basically Yarde is in charge of the the training, and doesn't do any meaningful sparring.

Can you imagine Anthony Joshua trying to tell Robert McCraken that he is going to knock off early because he knows best?

Tunde sounds like a fraud to me, and the only reason Yarde is with him is because he gets to do what he likes and is happy because he keeps winning.

I actually hope Yarde gets beat in the near future. Maybe then he’ll realise Tunde isn’t the real deal and will find a trainer who can get him on the right track.

Of course Tunde isn’t going to let him get beat unles it’s for big money, by which time it might be too late for Yarde to start over from scratch...

It’s a shame to see such talent going to waste. When Yarde first turned pro, there was a real buzz, and the way he was knocking over opponents did remind me a bit of when Nigel Benn was on the rise all those years ago (was it really that long ago, jeez I feel old).

Difference is, after four years as a pro, Benn was at the top of the sport having tear ups with world class opponents, whereas Yard isn’t hitting anything harder than the pads.

Doesn’t Yarde ask himself and Tunde why he isn’t progressing?

Ha,ha, I’ve just read another interview where Yarde claims he gets up when he feels like it and texts Tunde to tell him when he’ll be in, usually 1 or 2 pm. I’m guessing he isn’t one for roadwork either, but that’s just a wild guess...

"One time, after earlier being wobbled, Ohara stopped [current WBO junior welter champion] Maurice Hooker in a spar when their gym was packed. Later, Anthony Yarde dominated Andrew Tabiti [now 16-0] at Floyd’s gym and Junior Saba bossed [lightweight prospect] Ladarius Miller. My system was dominating the Mayweather system!
He's gonna struggle to get his fighters good sparring if he's slating their previous sparring partners. But it sounds like he's not looking for good sparring so I guess it's okay.

Ohara told a slightly different story about the Hooker sparring.
