    It was a left hand. Yarde's bodybuilder physique betrayed him. He faded bad in the championship rounds.

    Looks like it was a good fight. Excellent win by Khrusher. I would like to see the whole thing. Maybe BSPN will play it later.

    Yes the announcers talked about Yarde's physique coming into play late in the fight and after he made his ko effort in the 8th round he was too dead to do anything afterwards and was ko'd by a jab!

    Kovalev has a body of the old time boxers, he looks fit and strong but not like a cartoon character like Yarde who was probably on gear for this fight.

    A great fight and performance by Kov. He was in serious trouble in the 8th round but weathered the huge storm. Base on skill, heart and experience he was able to overcome and put a courageous Yarde away in the 11th. There is serious talk of Kov vs Canelo. If there is not catchweight or limitations on day of fight weight, Kov should be able to box Canelo and get a relatively easy win.

    I hope Kovalev and Canelo go. I don't think it will go to the cheating judges (Kovalev is too big and will knock him out), and I want to see Kovalev get a super big pay day. He has been one of our best guys.

    I like that Canelo has a lot of white in him, but I hate that he got fake wins over GGG. I thought Genady beat him both times.

    I don't like the turnaround of this fight an older fighter like Kovalev needs down time to heal and rejuvenate their bodies, Kovalev is essentially having two training camps in a row plus he took a beating in the 8th round. But this is part of the games PEDnelo and his team will pull to get an advantage in their mini-super fight.

    If Canelo demanded the November 2 date, and Kov gave in, shame on him. If he is not fully recovered from the Yarde fight, this mistake will be like the first Ward fight. Fighting in the US rather than Russia. If Kov is physically drained within 4 rounds and gets KO'd it all on him.
