  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Anthony Yarde, the British professional boxer, recently spoke with talkSPORT Boxing about his opinion that boxing would benefit from a heavyweight tournament. In the video interview, Yarde is joined by Dillian Whyte, as they discuss various topics related to the sport. Yarde starts the conversation by jokingly asking if the shades he is wearing obstructed his view and caused him to walk between the camera and his fellow boxer. He then explains that he rushed off to see someone who wanted to meet him.
    Moving on to more serious matters, Yarde reflects on his recent fight against Artur Beterbiev, stating that he looks back on it as an amazing fight. He expresses his satisfaction at being involved in such a challenging match and mentions that he has a desire to challenge himself and face the best boxers in the world. Yarde believes that both Sergey Kovalev and Oleksandr Gvozdyk, who he has fought in the past, are two of the best light heavyweights in recent years.
    The conversation then shifts to the current state of the light heavyweight division. Yarde mentions that there are many exciting fights happening both domestically in Britain and internationally. He then suggests the idea of an eight-man heavyweight tournament, expressing his belief that it would be amazing for the sport. Yarde suggests holding the tournament in the Middle East due to the potential financial resources available there. He also emphasizes the importance of getting all the promoters together to make such an event happen.
    When asked about the recent decision by Joshua Buatsi to turn down a fight against Dimitry Bivol, Yarde refuses to comment, stating that he doesn't know the details of the situation. He also mentions that people have falsely accused him of turning down fights in the past, so he prefers not to speculate. However, Yarde reiterates his willingness to fight anyone if the conditions are right.
    In conclusion, Anthony Yarde shares his perspective on the state of boxing and the potential benefits of a heavyweight tournament. He expresses his desire to challenge himself and fight the best in the world. Yarde also reflects on his past fights and emphasizes the importance of making fights happen at the right time. Overall, he remains optimistic about the future of the light heavyweight division and the sport as a whole.
