Anthony Yarde claims victory over Sergey Kovalev would go down as the greatest win by a British fighter on foreign soil.

Yarde will travel to deepest darkest Russia to take on the light-heavyweight world champion on Saturday week.

The Londoner is the outsider heading into the bout but believes he is capable of causing an upset, but knows he will likely have to win by knockout.

“It would be the No.1 in history,” he said. “I have to talk about the facts here and this is why it’s so exciting for me.

“Am I anticipating a few tricks? Yeah, I feel like you have to be silly not to pay attention to reality.

Anthony Yarde trains for Sergey Kovalev

“I don’t focus on the negative but if you’re going to somebody’s back yard it could happen. I’ve seen dodgy judging at York Hall, I’ve seen dodgy decisions out in America, I’ve seen a lot of things.

“I don’t think like that – my tunnel vision has been this: go to Russia and win by KO. That is it; it’s very simple and plain, I haven’t complicated it.

“I haven’t said I’ll go out there and throw a 25-punch combination or predicted what round it will happen but Anthony Yarde is going to go out to Russia and win by KO. That’s it.”

Kovalev has won all 18 of his professional fights, knocking out 17 of his opponents.

Yarde is confident of victory

And he added: “I started boxing at the age of 18, 19 and had my first amateur fight just before I turned 20.

“So this kid, 18 years old doesn’t know what he’s doing with his life, enters the boxing gym and falls in love with it straight away.

“Then he literally just dominates; in the amateur scene, dominates, then turned professional in 2015 and has been dominating ever since.

“I had this in my mind. I said I was going to steamtrain everyone and make a name for myself. People can’t help but talk about me; when they can hear the punches, it’s exciting.”
