    Yeah, Arthur winning, no complaints really, but the commentators are giving Spelman little credit for coming forward and letting his hands go.

    They are all in on Arthur, which doesn't surprise me, they want this Yarde fight.. but from what I've seen Yarde beats Arthur rather comfortably.

    But anyway, Arthur winning this unless Spelman pulls out a mini miracle.

    Arthur won that fight in second gear, it was almost nonchalant the way he fought at one pace on the back foot. Spelman was working his backside off but he took that many jabs moving onto the inside that he had very little to fire off himself and he was just pushing his shots out. There looked about a stone difference in there, too.

    Arthur v Yarde is a tough one. They’re both essentially cruiserweights who somehow boil down to 12 1/2. That said, Yarde has more muscle mass and was so gassed against Kovalev that he got starched by a jab. Arthur has the better skills for me, and certainly a better jab. Yarde does have some power though. They both fight at a pedestrian pace. It’s 50/50 but hold a gun to my head and I’d lean towards Arthur.

    It was all a bit too one-sided to be a good card but it was better than nothing. Arthur always had something to spare but I think Yarde will be a step too much for him. I'd like to see Nick Ball again.

    Good win for Lyndon.
    Dec gave a good account of himself with his constant pressure. He has a good jab but his right hand and left hook are nothing to write home about. He struggles with foot and hand coordination once he starts shortening the range.
    Also had some good headmovent but never capitalised on it. He never threw off his slips nor did he step off the slips and shorten the range.
    Lyndons upjab has developed since his last fight. He's learned to throw it from 2 different positions and it gave Dec hell tonight.
    Lyndon Looked really relaxed. Maybe a bit too relaxed,in fact. As I felt there were times Lyndon could of done with an increase of tempo and urgency in his shots.
    Maybe he'd of stopped Dec.
    Good fight.

    This is bull**** btw, cain never been to prison in his life. Had an argument with a shopkeeper aged 15 which they blew up and gave him a little slap on the wrist for 2 years later, nothing more to it.
