    The light-heavyweight preserved his unbeaten record having edged out by just a point.

    Arhur said: “I thought it was close.

    “If the points would’ve went on his side, I wouldn’t have said, ‘That was a robbery’.

    “But it went to me, so I’m not going to say that either.”


    This was the moment Yarde came ever so close to closing the show in dramatic fashion

    He wobbled Arthur with a chopping right hand, but could not find the finishing blow.

    It proved a similar story in Yarde's defeat to Sergey Kovalev last year.


    Anthony Yarde felt he was robbed of a victory over Lyndon Arhur after he was beaten on points.

    He said: "I'll be honest with you. Lyndon's not out here lying to nobody. There were parts where it was a bit close.

    "But if you look at who landed the clean, effective punches - the punches he landed were jabs, I landed my own jabs.

    "This is boxing, you're not going to go out there and be reckless.

    "From what I know that happened in the ring, I landed cleaner, I was pressing the whole fight.

    "This sums up 2020 for me anyway, I'll go back and watch the fight, congratulations bro, it's Lions In The Camp, I've got a strong mentality.

    "I personally and strongly feel that was a robbery. I'll be honest, I don't like to scream the word robbery but I feel like I won the fight."
