Frank Warren: Buglioni Rejected Over 100K For Yarde Fight

ANTHONY YARDE headlines the bill at the Brentwood Centre on Saturday when he defends his WBO Intercontinental Light-Heavyweight title against Argentina’s Walter Gabriel Sequeira.

Wembley traveller Gary Corcoran and Peckham’s Johnny Garton contest the vacant British welterweight title on another top Frank Warren card, live on BT Sport.

Two of Britain’s top super-middleweight prospects Umar Sadiq and Zak Chelli meet over eight rounds. Chelli won a toss of the coin to be in the home corner.

Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Nathan Gorman is also in action.

Here are a selection of quotes from yesterday’s press conference.

FRANK WARREN

"This is part of Anthony’s education moving forward. I am told by his management that Walter fancies the job.

Regarding Frank Buglioni, we offered over £100,000 and he did not want to know. This is about Anthony moving up the rankings.

Johnny Garton and Gary Corcoran are two tremendous competitors and it will be something special. What you see is what you get and it will be a good fight.

Zak and Umar is a pick ‘em and both called for it. Whoever wins will go on quickly and it will not be the end for the loser.

It is tough matching Nathan up. He is one of the most underestimated boxers in Britain and one of the most improved.

The job Ricky Hatton has done is amazing.

If he keeps moving forward, we will see some fight between him and Daniel Dubois next year.

ANTHONY YARDE

I could fight for a world title and win it, but it is about getting to that stage and staying there. I had 12 amateur fights and just 16 professional fights so I am inexperienced.

I want ten years in boxing and I have been professional for three years, so with seven years left there is no rush.

My talent has to be improved in all areas. Boxing is not a sport where you can be at a low level at all.

I'm confident and when you have power like me, it relaxes your nerves.

People complain about my opponents, but Walter is ranked above every other British rival apart from Callum Johnson.

The Joshua Buatsi fight can build. If he is as confident as I am, it is a big event down the line.

WALTER GABRIEL SEQUEIRA

Anthony is a very good boxer, but I am well prepared and cancelled a fight in September to take this.

Anthony has few weaknesses, but I have got a surprise in store on Saturday.

I always face bigger men and this will not be a problem. I have experienced this.

And yarde shamelessly refused a title shot against beterbiev

[QUOTE=Bigblackted44;19205294]I wouldn't go near Butasi if I was Yarde, he has a lot to learn before then.[/QUOTE] Yeah, and to be fair, it's the right call. Buatsi is an Olympic Bronze medalist of elite pedigree and Yarde had 12 amateur…

Buglioni's worth is about the same as a bag of Mr. Tayto...

What the heck would beating Buglioni prove anyway? The difference between Beterbiev and Buglioni couldn't be greater. Frank might want to look at something in between. He must know that Yarde is chinny as fk.
