BREAKING NEWS: Yarde turns down SECOND shot at world title.

Promoter Frank Warren details turning down a second world title shot for Yarde

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

A month or so ago you may remember that IntuBoxing.com reported that British light-heavyweight prospect, Anthony Yarde (15,0-14KO) has turned down a  chance to face IBF world light-heavyweight champion, Artur Beterbiev. Ultimately that shot has now gone to a domestic rival, British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion, Callum Johnson.

IntuBoxing.com has now learned that Yarde and his team have turned down the SECOND shot at a world title. Yes, that’s right a second world title shot. Promoter Frank Warren has revealed that he was offered the chance to face WBO world light-heavyweight champion, Sergey Kovalev. ‘Yarde was offered the fight with Kovalev, but we turned it down’ Warren said

We are unclear as to when this happened, or indeed whether it was before the chance to fight Beterbiev presented itself. Kovalev was looking to fight top-ranked American challenger, Marcus Browne. However, given Browne’s legal issues, Kovalev’s team abandoned their pursuit of Browne. The shot at the WBO  title eventually landed at the feet of long-time WBC mandatory challenger Eleider Alvarez.

Yarde fights this coming Saturday at London’s O2 Arena against polish challenger, Dariusz Sek (27-3-3). This bout will see Yarde challenge a southpaw for the first time. Yarde had this to say of his opponent ‘I don’t know much about Dariusz. But I go out and do my job. It doesn’t matter if he is southpaw, northpaw or westpaw. Sparring with southpaws have been different but nothing to worry me. When you have power, that relaxes you. I'm not thinking this is a pushover’.

Two world opportunities have come and gone for the young Hackney man. But one thing is for certain, Warren MUST step up the level of competition for his man. There aren’t many that turn down the opportunity of a world title, and Yarde has done it twice. Perhaps now we may finally see Warren turn to Eddie Hearn’s stable of very capable light-heavyweights as a means to test his charge’s skills at a higher level than which he has competed at thus far.
