Last two shots weren’t needed. Just out on his feet.

Ref tried to run in there.

Arthur got out of jail with that bodyshot lordy, tough test from Suarez who was dangerous with the right hand from the bell, Arthur got nailed with it a few times in the 1st but Arthur made good use of the jab and boxed well behind it, Suarez put him down right at the end of the 4th with the right, bell just in time, torrid 5th for Arthur as well as he got battered, things settled down a bit though but Arthur still looked to passive amd Suarez roughed him up on the ropes and was still dangerous, I had Suarez building up a handy lead before Arthur found the finish out of nowhere in the 10th, left hand to the body, didnt look a hard shot and there was some delayed reaction from Suarez but he was winded , smash and grab from Arthur that

Reminded me of one of the better Friday night Sky shows from back in the day.

Small arena, decent atmosphere, not a massively high level but 2 good, hard fights with guys trying to win in well matched fights.

Lyson got caught in a poor position to see what was happening - cartwright basically out on his feet and took 2 solid head shots that he didnt need to take .

Antwi and Cartwright serving up a cracker, Cartwright was losing the fight but he is nails and just never stopped coming forward, Antwi was able box him, his offence and defence was sharper and he countered Cartwright with some eye catching shots, real textbook stuff from Antwi he looked good against a tough aggressive opponent who never gave him peace


The KO in the 12th was brutal, Antwi caught Cartwright with a big right hand which him out on his feet before a left then a right slept him, great ending to a great fight, what a way to become British champion

Enjoyed this card, Boxing King Media got some good interviews. Was funny how laid back Lyndon was even after the fight. Zelfa was made up for him. Sunny too. They seem a tight unit with Pat. Lyndon has such a good jab, was good to see him get a knockout.

Didn't see a particularly big body shot in that Arthur fight.

Antwi seems likeable and that was a cracking finish. What's his level?

excellent question, looking forward to watching him in future to find out the answer.

Really good fight for Arthur. I agree with Comms that he could make the straight right more of a weapon by committing more, but when your jab and chin are so good then why take the risk? Composure is such an underrated skill and he has it.

his chin isnt really that good, might be why he's hesitant to commit

+1.

Loved the two fights. Only two downsides for me. First, the insistence that it was a "world title fight". Don't insult our intelligence, particular of those of us who have lived through the epic Steve Roberts/Secret Williams/Takaloo/Anthony Farnell
"world" title era. Second, for those of us who had recorded it and were watching on a Saturday while working through a pile of ironing, can Channel 5 please stop cutting off the recording when the fight goes past the scheduled end time. Round 11 of Antwi-Cartwright just starting, then - end. Meh.

PS - I particularly loved the unspoken discord between Kalle and Lyndon in the post-fight interview. Lyndon clearly wanted to go home for a cup of tea and an early night, but no, Kalle wants to party "long into the night". If an IBO title justifies an all-nighter, how long would Kalle party for if Arthur won a proper title? Oof...

You'd have to have a heart of stone to not smile at the almost childlike sense of delight on Lyndon’s face when he was announced as world champion.

He should be proud and enjoy his moment because I don’t think are many more happy moments left in his career.

What a great little show this was, two cracking fights and C5 covered the action brilliantly

It was avaliable on Ch5 on demand on Saturday so no need for the recording faff

All round great show. I like the presenter too. Yes, Logans talk about world champion was risible and he should have been challenged on it

I agree with all you’ve said. Like many on the board I think there should be more respect for intermediary belts. We seen a great British titled scrap there, why can’t we see great British commonwealth or even European title wars like that any more?

Someone on twitter once called a fighter out for winning the “Beef and Black Bean Title” and it’s always stuck with me.

You don’t need two world class operators to make a good fight. You just need two hungry kiddas who are on a similar level.

my thoughts entirely. Zelfa was so pleased for him too.
