IT’S already been compared to Rocky IV but the much discussed fight between Anthony Yarde and Sergey Kovalev isn’t completely signed off just yet.

Yarde’s trainer, Tunde Ajayi, told Boxing News, “It’s 99.9% done. We know the date. The 24th of August. The date’s out there.”

Despite recent rumours Ajayi insists that a touted fight between Kovalev and Canelo Alvarez won’t stand in their way. “There’s not enough time for the build up” he said. “There’s not enough time for the media. Even if he did take it, we’re only going to get better because of our system.”
