  • Comments Thread For: Reeves Motivated To Pull Off a Rahman Shock on Anthony Yarde

    TRAVIS REEVES will be motivated by his trainer Hasim Rahman's shock win against Lennox Lewis when he faces Anthony Yarde. Rahman caused one of boxing's biggest ever upsets when he became IBF and WBC champion back in April 2000, knocking out Lewis in five rounds. Reeves (17-3-2) will attempt to cause his own stunner when he challenges Yarde (17-0) for the Ilford man's WBO intercontinental light-heavyweight title at London's Royal Albert Hall on Friday March 8, live on BT Sport.

        That champion is Kovalev, so Yarde better hope Kov takes a couple fights first. Beterbiev...maybe Gvozdyk too?

                yeah, but it's not a real "step up" if it's a title shot though. If Alvarez still had the WBO Yarde wouldn't go anywhere near Kovalev.

                Also, is there a WBA Super Champ at 175? I thought it was Bivol, but it shows him as Regular. So then I thought it was Browne, but he's showing as Interim.....so yeah...?

                  I thought Browne was the wbc interim. I dont think there is a super wba champ, if anything it would be bivol. Jack won the regular title from cleverly and then relinquished it

                    Why compare Yarde (who has beaten no fighter of credit / achievement) to Lennox Lewis who was a unified HW World Champion?

                    Until Yarde actually fights a genuine opponent he remains a gym rat / hype job domestic level guy.
