Promising undefeated boxer Anthony Yarde has impressed in each and every bout, most recently stopping Rayford Johnson in the first round by TKO in Arlington, Texas in a cruiserweight bout on the 17th of September.
He has gone on a tear at light heavyweight, going 8-0 since turning pro. Recently, Yarde has been sponsored by UK supplement company MaxiNutrition
This is an accolade that sees Yarde in league with stellar boxing talent including Amir Khan, Anthony Ogogo and Carl Froch. The partnership means that Yarde will have supplement support from a company that is accredited by Informed-Sport to provide science-led protein knowledge to their athletes.
Yarde has never experienced defeat in his boxing life, having spent his amateur career unbeaten and now transitioning to what looks to be a promising professional career. He has already been noticed for his technical ability, speed and solid knockout power.
Speaking of MaxiNutrition’s decision to partner with him, Yarde was appreciative: “Boxing is an extremely tough sport, and it is crucial that I am on top of my game 24/7. This is why signing with MaxiNutrition, and using their Informed-Sport-accredited products, was a no-brainer for me. I now know I have the best possible team in my corner to make me a force to be reckoned with.”
The hard-hitting light heavyweight’s next bout will be October 22nd – where he fights in Cardiff against an as-yet unnamed opponent.
MaxiNutrition’s marketing director, Craig Percival, is just as excited about his prospects as the rest of the boxing world: “We are delighted to welcome Anthony to the MaxiNutrition team. Anthony is an incredibly hard-working and powerful athlete and we hope we can fuel him to get to the top. Anthony has all the attributes required to be a world champion and we are confident that is exactly what we will be calling him in the near future.”
With a strong sponsorship behind him and a promising record already established, Yarde looks to be a serious threat to the light heavyweight division. All eyes are on him for his next bout.
