Top heavyweight Tyson Fury is fully supporting unbeaten light heavyweight contender Anthony Yarde, who on Saturday night will challenge WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev, before a very hostile crowd in Russia.
Kovalev, at 36-years-old, is viewed as being near the final chapter of his career.
And Yarde is the young puncher on the way up, hoping to finally cross over with a huge win over the division ruler.
Fury captured heavyweight gold in November 2015, when he traveled to Germany to unseat the heavily favored champion, Wladimir Klitschko.
Now Yarde has to accomplish the same task.
But, he feels the career of Yarde could very well be over in defeat.
"It'll only make his career better when he wins. I've been on the road, I've been to Germany, America, I've been all over; Canada, Ireland. If you're any good you'll win; if you're not, you'll lose. Home advantage means nothing to me but it does to a lot of people because they're not natural fighting men," Fury told BT Sport.
"Some people can't fight off their own soil, me, I can fight anywhere because it's bred in me. I can fight on a cruise ship or in a swimming pool if it was emptied out. But that's me, and we're going to see what Anthony Yarde is made of. I think he'll do it.
"And I think if he can't beat Kovalev then he should forget about it because where is he going? I'm not saying Kovalev is useless but a good younger man should beat a good older one. I believe he'll do it and that he'll be a good little champion."
As previously reported, Fury believes Yarde will get the job done.
"I fancy Anthony Yarde, I really do. I think Kovalev is on the slide, he's been a very good world champion in his time and he's done very well, but i think the Andre Ward losses have beat the sh*t out of him really," Fury said.
"He lost the fight to [Eleider] Alvarez then came back to beat him but I think a young man will always beat an older one and that's my motto. I fancy Anthony Yarde to knock him out, not just beat him on points, but stop him, because thats what he'll have to do in Russia."
