Sergey «Krusher» Kovalev
Sergey Kovalev is a Russian professional boxer.
My tunnel vision has been this: go to Russia and win by KO.
That is it, it's very simple and plain, I haven't complicated it.
Anthony Yarde is a British professional boxer.
Yarde remains undefeated as a professional.
He calls himself a lion, but I would say he is a lion cub. I’m going to take him to school.
Due to his experience, it doesn't really bother me - there’s tonnes like him.
I think that the timing is right from a standpoint of his age, his physicality and all that stuff. But he just hasn't fought the right fights at this stage, that's the issue.
You can't go from a C level to an A level, or A- level, or B+ level. Some guys can pull it off. You've got the Floyd Mayweathers of the world, you've got Muhammad Ali when he fought Sonny Liston. You've got those types of guys. But I don't know if Yarde is that guy.
