Arthur vows to make easy work of Spelman

On Friday, June 21, at the Bolton White Hotel in Bolton, United Kingdom, Lyndon Arthur (23-2, 16 KOs) returns for his first fight in 2024 against Sheffield fighter Liam Cameron (23-5, 10 KOs) on Channel 5 in the UK. [tgdcta items="1" id="180856"] Arthur returns to the ring for the first time since losing to Dmitry Bivol by unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the bout 120-107x3. Liam Cameron has endured a plethora of personal problems, which resulted in him not fighting for five years until he won a narrow points decision over Robbie Connor. Since that win, "Cannonball" has won his two fights in 2024, which led to this huge opportunity against Arthur, who will be keen to prove he's a level above Cameron. Can the Sheffield fighter cause the upset, or will Arthur prove he is still a class act in the division? All eyes now turn to Bolton on June 21, where these two light heavyweights collide for the WBA inter-continental title. How to Stream and Everything Else for Lyndon Arthur vs. Liam Cameron Betting Odds Per Sky Bet, Arthur will enter the bout as an overwhelming 1/12 betting favourite. Cameron is the 8/1 underdog as we get closer to fight night.

Arthur vows to make easy work of Spelman

With his contest on BT Sport and ESPN+ in the United States against Dec Spelman today, ‘King’ Lyndon Arthur has declared himself ready to conquer the United Kingdom’s Light Heavyweight landscape.

“Forget Yarde and Buatsi,” said Lyndon of his two most high-profile rivals at light heavyweight. “By the end of the year, I’ll be the guy you’re all talking about.”

Prior to Lockdown, Arthur had been scheduled for a blockbuster bust-up with ‘The Beast’ Anthony Yarde but those plans were scuppered by the Lockdown and subsequent postponement of a planned April 11th card at the O2 Arena.

That fight remains part of Frank Warren’s plans for later this year, but first Lyndon must overcome a tricky defense of his Commonwealth Light Heavyweight title against a tough opponent in Dec Spelman.

Spelman is confident of victory himself and in his first interview since arriving in London for fight week, the Scunthorpe scrapper vowed to take Lyndon’s “head off” in the main event that will close out the broadcast.

The ‘King’ isn’t worried about the threat to his crown… or his head.

“Friday it’ll be the same old story. I’ll beat him down and I’ll knock him out. Easy work.

“I keep hearing people say this is my hardest fight but I’m going to make it look like my easiest. Dec Spelman has never been hit as hard as he will be on Friday night.”

Spelman enters the ring boasting an impressive record of 16-3, but the undefeated Mancunian thinks he’ll be able to prove he’s a level above his opponent.

Lyndon is 16-0 with 12KO’s to his name and believes he’ll soon prove himself worthy of his royal nickname.

The ‘King’ said: “Dec’s a good fighter but he doesn’t belong in the ring with me.” He’ll look to back up that statement when they face off today.
