LOS ANGELES, – The Anatomy Of A Fight or as most would refer, “The Tale Of The Tape” gives you the physical measurements of a fighters advantages and disadvantages over the other. Only one will prevail when Antonio Tarver pits his athleticism, versatility and great defense against a young, hungry and power punching Lateef Kayode. But there is one thing that the “Tale Of The Tape” cannot give you, the size of a fighters heart, determination and will to win. And that’s where this fight will be measured.
