Tyson Fury has backed Anthony Yarde to KO Sergey Kovalev and become world champion.

Londoner Yarde will travel to Russia to take on the formidable light-heavyweight ruler next weeked.

The fight represents a considerable step up for the inexperienced Brit who has fought just 30 times amateur and professional.

But he has knocked out 17 of his 18 opponents in the paid ranks and Fury believes he can continue that form against an ageing Kovalev.

“I fancy Anthony Yarde, I really do,” he told BT Sport . “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 s*** out of him really.

Anthony Yarde prepares for Sergey Kovalev

“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.”

Fury also believes home advantage should mean nothing for Kovalev and that Yarde should be confident of causing the upset.

“It’ll only make his career better when he wins,” he added. “I’ve been on the road, I’ve been to Germany, America, I’ve been all over; Canada, Ireland.

Tyson Fury believes Kovalev (right) is on the slide

“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.

“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.”
