    One of the most bizzare performances. Just looked to be totally uninterested throughout

    Was happy to take the money and get beat up. Looked like he went in there knowing his role was to do the job and put Yarde over.

    No real fighter, a man who wants to be champion would ever have such a mind set.

    He got a super aggressive Yarde from the first bell, he simply couldn't deal with it and got absolutely smashed to bits and then quit before he got fully knocked out.

    That's all there is to it

    One mans mindset is never the same every day unlike yours.

    It's actually quite obvious

    Can you imagine Mayweather, Crawford, Spence et al , showing up to a fight and thinking I'm just gonna take a beating and take my money? Certainly not, how can you ever be a champion with a mindset like that, it's a loser mindset

    Hell, even his camp mate Zelfa would never do that, Zelfa believes in himself and has a champion mentality.

    Not saying he took a dive just he clearly had no interest and as soon as he saw a way out he took it.

    Think about it though

    Why would would he have no interest?

    He beat Yarde by the skin of his teeth the first fight, split decision. Many said it was a fluke, especially Yarde and his team, they were very vocal about that. So why would Lyndon want to prove them right? Don't forget this was a grudge match and there was animosity in the build up, no one wants to lose a fight, let alone a grudge match

    It was his last fight with Warren. Going into the open market with two wins over Yarde would get him a super deal, getting wasted in three rounds decimates the financial deals on offer to him

    So not only does winning, solidify his name and his gyms name as great, they win the grudge match and he will make shed loads more money on the back of it

    Lyndon badly wanted to win, he just couldn't. He didn't expect Yarde to come out as hard and as aggressive as he did, not giving him any room, pushing the pace, constant pressure and it made him crack, he went down and quit. He knew if he continued he was going to get knocked out as did everyone else.

    Yarde is simply a far superior fighter. No excuses
