    Frank says on the video that he’s put a complaint in to the BBBoC about Arthur.

    Mate, I know we always like to stand behind fighters and cast promoters as greedy cnuts, but there has to be give and take - this is a business after all.

    The argument seems to be the venue being in Birmingham instead of Manchester in the 20k MEN.

    I don’t think anybody on this forum thinks it’s unreasonable for Warren to want to put it in the Brum venue rather than the alternative which would be a disaster of a business decision.

    If Arthur has signed a rematch clause
    (and probably got paid more for the curtesy) he should honour the contract and also his word to his fellow fighter.

    Having said that, if it can’t be resolved satisfactory then Warren should allow Arthur to leave without legal action - this isn’t the old days, it will hurt him even if he is in the right.

    come on, I am not a big fan of yarde but arthur looked uncomfortable everytime yarde turned up the pressure. Yarde probably stops him in the second fight

    He definitely was uncomfortable. Yarde can wobble a fighter with one punch and Arthur would have been aware of that. Fact is though, Yarde doesn't really know how to set up the big punch. He's used to having blown up middleweights waiting to be chinned. He's clueless when his opponent uses their jab and footwork, he has no idea how to negate the jab (same with the Kovalev fight).

    Yarde needs to increase his workrate slightly in the second fight and he will win this fight easily. You are overrating arthurs jab especially when nothing comes behind it most of the time and there is not a lot there for yarde to be worried about in terms of power.

    If this does happen I will be backing Arthur.

    Yarde’s last opponent was bizarre. He dropped right down to road sweeper level when he has a big rematch to prepare for at a far higher level.

    He must be one of the biggest wastes of talent in British boxing. You learn absolutely nothing fighting at that level.

    Has Yarde learned how to set up his power shorts and work his way to the inside? How the **** will he ever practice it against a live dog when he is always facing road sweepers.

    Honestly mate, Arthur's domestic level for me (no shame in that). His jab and the speed in which he pumps it out is his best asset (along with decent footwork) but I think Yarde is just a one dimensional puncher who's got the aesthetics to do adverts or love Island not 12 round fights.

    According to Warren when he informed Arthur's team Manchester Arena wasn't available they said what about Old Trafford :lol: yeah it might fill one of the exec boxes.

    Why did people see talent in this man?

    His amateur career is practically non-existent (12 fights). If he wanted to gain experience in the professional ranks then he should have made his debut at 18, not 24-25 years of age.

    Yarde is 30 years old and he couldn't even beat a British level boxer (Arthur).

    Can anyone name another boxer who despite being British level at 30 years of age managed to do anything worthwhile?

    The only 12 amateur fights argument is rubbish! He just doesn't have the genuine talent ad ability. He's sold as a prospect largely on his physique (as silly as that sounds).
    He was also a ringer! He had unlicensed "white-collar" fights. Banging over your local keep-fit wannabe-boxers. The footage was on Youtube, competing under a different name but was him clear as day. It's been removed now. He then only boxed in the novice under 10 bouts class in the amateurs. That suggests a bully to me.

    Think it's for another contractual reason

    No chance mate. Hearn will not go near Arthur whilst Warren has a contract/dispute ongoing.

    Sounds like Arthur will be in Liverpool.

    Be a good move for Arthur, not many know who he is, after the fight it will be all over social media that a Frank Warren fighter was front row at the Eddie Hearn show. Could even benefit Warren if he’s still contracted.
