How to watch Anthony Yarde vs Lyndon Arthur

Just one week on from Daniel Dubois vs Joe Joyce, another two top Frank Warren prospects lock horns in a fantastic 50-50 fight.

Both world title contender Anthony Yarde (20-1, 19KOs) and unbeaten champion Lyndon Arthur (17-0, 12KOs) put it all on the line in an equally risky match for both boxers.

Undercard Highlights

'Troble Maker' Michael Ramabeletsa (18-17, 8KOs) gets his well deserved primtime slot after years of toiling and upsetting unbeaten prospects on the road. The South African from Preston, who is the current English super-bantamweight champion, goes in against unbeaten hot prospect, Chris Bourke (8-0, 5KOs), with the vacant WBC International super-bantemweight belt winner.

Managed by Martin Bowers, 26-year-old Bourke won the Southern Area super-bantamweight title in his last fight in July against unbeaten Ramez Mahmood (11-1, 2KOs), but he gets his toughest test here against a man with a very deceptive record. The 39-year-old has beaten three undefeated prospects in a row, knocking out two of them and winning two titles.

This should be a really intruiging contest, which will likely swing back and forth for the full 10-rounds.

 

Tickets

The fight takes place behind closed doors, with no spectators allowed.

Press Conference Quotes

Lyndon Arthur: "I've watched him go through the gears with the opponents he's faced and, with being from the same promotional team, it has always made sense for us to fight. We've both been winning, both been doing our thing, we're both British and, as everyone says, it makes for a great British dust-up. That is what it is going to be on the night.

We will see what happens on the night but I believe I am better and I believe I will win. I am not here to make the numbers up or be an opponent. I might be on the B-side right now but I am here to change that. I feel like I am special."

Anthony Yarde: "It is boxing, it is a compliment he wants to fight me and he will tell you himself I have done nothing but entertain and have done more than what was expected of me. That is how I've got to the level I am at so for me on Saturday night it is about doing the same thing. Being a better Anthony Yarde, being entertaining, being explosive and as smart as I can be.

A lot of people couldn't be here with what I have been through this year. Again, I didn't make any excuses and just got back in the ring. It is 'Lions in the Camp'."

 

Background

It's thanks to tough man Dec Spelman (16-5, 8KOs) that this fight has been set up so spectacularly. The English champion from Scunthorpe fought Lyndon Arthur (17-0,12KOs) on the last day of July, then he jumped in the ring with Anthony Yarde (20-1, 19KOs) just six weeks later. He had a hard 12 rounds with Arthur, but was stopped for the first ever time in his six-year career by hard-hitting Yarde.

Yarde fell short at world title level against Krusher Kovalev (34-4-1, 29KOs) in August last year, despite coming seconds away from stopping the Russian in round eight. He has bounced back with two TKOs on the spin this year.

29-year-old Mancunian, Arthur, won his Commonwealth strap in October 2019 and defended it successfully to Spelman nine months later - both times winning via UD.

 

Predictions

Mitch Mitchell fought Anthony Yarde on his debut in 2015, but is backing the other corner: "I think Lyndon will edge it on a points decision. He's more experienced, great defence and can hit hard also. Yarde is a slow starter, so if Arthur takes advantage of that, I think he will be off to a good start. Yarde is always very dangerous and very fit and hungry, so we will see who wants it more."
