Trainers and mangers are supposed to know their fighters better than anyone, so why was Anthony Yarde matched against Sergey Kovalev so soon.

 

Anthony Yarde’s trainer, Tunde Ajayi led the boxing community to believe that he was in possession of the best light heavyweight in world. Not only were we told that Yarde would beat Kovalev, we were told that Yarde would knock Kovalev out!

 

Team Yarde have come under a lot of negativity from fans who believed that Anthony Yarde was not the fighter they branded him to be. Doubters based their opinions on the reluctance of Yarde’s management team to put Yarde in with the best at domestic level and opting to put him against unknown European and American opposition instead.

 

In any event Anthony Yarde finally got his opportunity to show the world how good he really was and this should not have been against Sergey Kovalev. Yarde easily lost the first six rounds and when Yarde finally managed to get himself into the fight in the seventh and eighth, Yarde ran out of gas and was later knocked out in the eleventh.

 

It was a very brave and encouraging performance by Yarde, but it was clearly evident that Yarde lacked the experience to deal with a seasoned professional like Kovalev. However, both trainer and fighter will learn from this and conceive that you can’t cheat experience.
