Quotes

Lyndon Arthur: “Dec might have lost a couple of fights, but he leaves it in there and is a tough, come forward fighter, can take a shot and could be in there for the long haul.

“He is rock solid, but he hasn’t been hit off me. He hasn’t been in with anyone who hits as hard as I do. I am looking to knock him out.

“I have not fought since October last year so it will be good to get out before the [Anthony] Yarde fight.”

Dec Spelman: “All I’ve heard about since the fight was made is how Lyndon’s going to beat me and then get his big night against Anthony Yarde.

“I’m sick of people looking past me, I’m sick of Lyndon Arthur looking past me. It’s all fun and games for him until he gets in the ring on Friday and realises he should never have taken this fight.”

 

Background

Mancunian Lyndon Arthur (16-0, 12KOs) makes the first defence of his Commonwealth light-heavyweight championship against challenger Dec Spelman (16-3, 8KOs) in the third instalment of Frank Warren’s summer series.

Scunthorpe’s Spelman, trained by Carl Greaves, is one of the toughest 12st 7lb men in Britain and it will be a big ask for Arthur to end his challenge inside 12 rounds, even though the champion is adamant that's what he plans to do.

29-year-old 'King Arthur' hasn’t boxed since last October when he claimed his title by outpointing Ghana’s Emmanuel Anim, who he floored in round four.

The winner will face light-heavyweight superstar Anthony Yarde next.

 

Predictions

BBN Editor, Tim Rickson: “Lyndon Arthur is the favourite to win, but he has a formidable foe in front of him in Dec Spelman. I expect this to be an exciting see-saw battle, with plenty of thrills and talking points, with Arthur eventually prevailing on points.”
