Yarde stops Arthur in rematch
In the WBO Light Heavyweight Eliminator former world title challenger Anthony Yarde (22-2, 21 KOs) won a spectacular fourth round KO victory over a previously undefeated Lyndon Arthur (19-1, 13 KOs) in the main event of the evening at the Copper Boxing Arena in London.
Yarde started the fight extremely aggressively and spent the whole fight in a similar fasion. He pressed Arthur well and in the fourth round was able to land a good right hand. Arthur got up, but the referee decided that he had had enough and stopped the meeting at 1:27. Thus, Yarde took revenge for defeat to Arthur by split decision a year ago.
