Lyndon Arthur On Anthony Yarde rematch: “We saw what happened in first fight”

On December 5, 2020, Commonwealth Light Heavyweight titlist Lyndon “King” Arthur (18-0, 12ko) pulled off the biggest upset of his career, defeating hard-hitting Anthony “The Beast from the East” Yarde (20-2, 19ko).

The undefeated British light heavyweight also walked away with the vacant WBO Inter-Continental title. Furthermore, he was awarded a bump in the rankings, moving up into the number three position.

King Arthur injured the right hand in the fight and British promoter Frank Warren claimed that both fighters are all-in on a rematch. Furthermore, he is now apart of the conversation with fellow countrymen Yarde, Joshua Buatsi, and former championship contender Callum Johnson as a top British light heavyweight.

While recovering from the hand injury, “King” Arthur spoke with 3kingsboxing affiliate Pro Beez of Peptalk UK and he was very candid about being a major player like his fellow countrymen counterparts.

“You have to put up there now, and I’ve been said this from ages ago. Eventually, you will talk about me. It was kind of leaving me out and it wasn’t annoying. But it was just like, ‘alright watch when I get there, I will show you,’ and I am there, so you can’t ignore me anymore.”


The interviewer also asked about Arthur’s and trainer Pat Barrett’s mindset on moving forward, looking at the light heavyweight landscape.

“I am just going to go with the flow and see what happens. I know I want to be a world champion and I will be. We put ourselves in a good position. We are arms’ lengths, and it’s going to be a fun next couple of years.”

When asked what can be expected from a fully recovered King Arthur when the rematch takes place, he replied:

“Well, we saw what happened in the first match. So regardless, I win.”
