And we will be ready, no matter how difficult the upcoming battle is. I will try to show my best.”
“Going into my first world title fight, I was still very inexperienced, I had only 18 pro fights and I was new to this sport,” Yard said. But at the same time, I still had something – my heart. I went to Russia, it was a completely new experience and a lot of things happened before the fight, but I have such a mentality that once you get into the ring, you will see everything … Now it doesn’t matter, my preparation is now different, and I have since learned. Now I am a different fighter with a different life experience. I’m ready for Saturday’s fight.”
