Anthony Yarde: That Stage I'm at Now - I Don't Need No One

Unbeaten Anthony Yarde insists he is happy with his progression as he continues his path through the Light-Heavyweight division.

Next up on June 23rd, 'The Beast' takes on Dariusz Sek, the first southpaw he has faced in his amateur and professional career.

Headlining York Hall for the first time back in February, 'The Beast' continued his knockout streak when stopping Tony Averlant.


Averlant went down twice in the sixth round from left hooks to the body and the Frenchman refused to come out for the seventh session. Speaking to Boxing Social about that win, Yarde described the performance as a "tactical breakdown".

"As I've been saying from the beginning, everything's timing. So I feel like that fight was good for me to take my time. I'll be honest, early in my career I would've stood in front of him and just started landing bombs.

"It's about learning how to box as well. It wasn't time for me to unleash on him. When someone doesn't come out of their corner, it means they've had enough. It was good to get seven rounds in. Eventually I'll have to go 12 rounds one day...maybe," he laughed.

Last summer, the Londoner was linked to a showdown with Frank Buglioni after the former British Champion called him out on Twitter, but Yarde insists he is on his own path and isn't concerned by anyone else.

"I say to myself, 'Stay on your journey and do your thing. Keep progressing, keep getting better, keep motivating people around the world'.

"You never hear me bad-mouthing anyone. I haven't called people out because I'm on my journey. The stage I'm at now, I don't need no one. My performances in the ring are speaking for themselves," added the 26-year-old.

27 years old and still fighting bums to gather experience. When will he step up? When he is 30? Guy is a bum. If pascal wins his return fight throw him against pascal to see where he is really at…

yarde seems like a very good,marketable fighter but come on I think its about time he faces someone that has the intent to hit back

Honestly his statements would be absolutely fine with his limited experience if it weren’t for his ridiculous ranking and Frank Warren continually blowing smoke up his arse. As it is he’s being talked about as if he’s the next big…

[QUOTE=Ray*;18860349]Thats the biggest thing about him, he feels ok fighting cans. He doesn;t seem to want to question his trainer (Tunde) or his promoter (Frank), he is comfortable doing this until he sees a free belt somewhere. I cannot iamgine…

Yarde has huge potential but he needs to step up to higher level opposition before making stupid statements. Eubank Jnr found out the hard way that you cannot hype your way to titles at the top level.
