WBO light heavyweight Champion Sergey Kolalev take on mandatory challenger Anthony Yarde on the 24th of August in his hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia.
Kovalev will be defending his title for the first time since winning the title back from eleiEle Alvarez in a rematch in February, after losing the title via knockout to him in October.
Yarde is younger and as usual should possess more energy than Kovalev who is 36 and is almost at the closing stage of his career but Yarde has never been with an opponent of Kovalev’s caliber.
Uncertainty looms over the fight because the Brit will be fighting away from home and in a hostile territory like Russia. He will be fighting against Odds.
