In a fight that never heated up, unbeaten Commonwealth light heavyweight champion Lyndon Arthur (17-0, 12 KOs) scored a twelve round split decision over Anthony Yarde (19-2, 18 KOs) on Saturday night at the iconic Church House in London. Yarde couldn’t get past Arthur’s jab in a surprisingly non-competitive fight early on. Yarde started coming on when his corner realized Arthur wasn’t throwing ANY right hands. Scores were for 115-114, 115-114 for Arthur and 117-111 for Yarde.
