Anthony Yarde breaks boxing machine record with sonic-boom strike

There will be plenty of action to choose from this weekend in a bumper double-bill.

Lyndon Arthur faces Anthony Yarde in a light-heavyweight rematch which is followed by a lightweight showdown between Devin Haney and JoJo Diaz.

Arthur and Yarde will meet in the ring for the second time at the Copper Box in London with the latter looking to avenge his points defeat from last year.

The pair have had heated exchanges in the build-up to the clash, with Arthur bringing constant reminders to his domestic rival of his victory with just one hand after suffering an injury during the fight.

After the conclusion of the British fight night, attention will switch to America where lightweight star Devin Haney will defend his WBC title against JoJo Diaz.

He will be looking to set up a new undisputed showdown with George Kambosos who recorded a shock defeat against Teofimo Lopez last weekend.

Lyndon Arthur: “ It is completely cool for him to say I am a boring fighter because the boring fighter won. I don’t need to listen to anyone, if they think I am boring, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

“It is sport and everyone in this room has an opinion on me and him. Whether they like me or him is down to them. I don’t care.

“If I am boring, I will win boring. We will find out on Saturday whether a crowd benefits either of us. He thinks it does, but I don’t think it benefits him. I don’t care, it is a fight and the crowd can’t get in there. They can scream, they can shout and it will make a fun atmosphere. I had Sunny there before and he is like a crowd.”

Anthony Yarde: “It was just decision making and timing. My mindset was not there for the fight. I do not make excuses and I was heated straight after the fight, but you can’t reverse anything and you’ve got to go in there and take opportunities.

“He got the decision, a split decision and there are mixed opinions in boxing. One judge gave it to me by four or five rounds and two gave it to him by one round so it is just perspective and how you see the fight. At the time I thought I won it, they thought it was close and, going back and watching it from a different angle, I thought it was a closer fight as well.

“I watched it back and kept saying it was sh**, but I was going through a lot and my mind was not on boxing at all. People will probably understand that, but I am a person that doesn’t make excuses. It is all about this Saturday.”

Quotes corner

Devin Haney: “JoJo wasn’t in a rush to fight me, I feel like we had to corner him to make him take the fight, all these other guys it’s the same thing.

“They know my skills set, how much I bring to the table, if JoJo didn’t take this fight the world would have known what it really was. December 4, they’re going to see.

“I do feel like his [Joseph Diaz Jr.] style will be tailor made for me, there’s nothing that he can do to win.

“He can’t outbox me, I’ll show him he can’t out bang me, I have the size advantage, all the tools to win.”

JoJo Diaz: “If he wants to try and box, I’m just going to hunt his a** down.

“If he wants to come and bang, I’m just going to bang it out as well. Whatever he wants to bring to the table I’m going to bring it.

“I feel like I’m at my prime, I feel like I’ve already took all the steps I needed to take to be at this point in my life and my career. As far as taking fights with Jesús Rojas, Tevin Farmer, Gary Russell Jr., Javier Fortuna, I’ve already fought those top tier contenders.”
