Manchester’s Lyndon Arthur (21-1,15 KOs) will top the bill of Wasserman’s card on Friday night against knockout artist Argentinian Braian Suarez (18-1, 17 KOs). The pair will be clashing for the vacant IBO light heavyweight world title, with the action aired live on Channel 5.
The world title clash will take place at the University of Bolton stadium, with Arthur having the home advantage. Arthur looks to win the belt in order to open new doors, in what is an exciting division domestically and world-wide at light heavyweight.
“He’s a solid opponent and he’s obviously confident”, “I look forward to this fight on Friday”- Arthur assured BBTV.
The undercard will see Arthurs gym mate and former Muay Thai champion Niall Brown (7-0, 3 KOs) appear in his eighth pro fight against Bahadur Karami (1-4-1, 1 KO). Brown has also been a sparring partner for Arthur, before his fight with Anthony Yarde (23-3, 22 KOs). “I’m looking forward to showing what I’m about”- Brown told BBTV.
Former team GB boxer and youth commonwealth gold medallist Chloe Watson (4-0, 0 KOs) sets to make her 5th appearance as a pro against Romina Sosa (3-1-4, 0 KOs). Watson trains at Ricky Hatton’s gym in Manchester and is certainly a prospect to watch.
