Amateur Career

  • Anthony Yarde began boxing at nineteen years old and only had 12 amateur fights prior to becoming a professional fighter. Yarde finished his amateur career with a record of eleven wins by knockout and one loss.
  • "Personally, I saw the amateurs as a learning curve and would fight anybody. I just wanted as much experience as quickly as possible. But far too many around my weight class were just hell bent on protecting their records. When I entered the Senior ABA's, the officials claimed they’d lost my card! After winning the Haringey Cup, I’d had enough of it." [1]
