Arthur vs Cameron set for Channel 5 in June

Arthur vs Cameron – Lyndon Arthur will be out to prove he remains one of the best light heavyweight fighters in the world, when he battles Liam Cameron, live and free-to-air on Channel 5, on Friday June 21.

The former IBO title holder returns to the ring this summer, fighting for the first time since his huge unification clash with Dmitry Bivol in Saudi Arabia, last December.

Arthur faces ‘Cannonball’ Cameron at the Toughsheet Community Stadium and ‘King Arthur’ is laser-focused on getting back into contention as soon as possible.

The 32-year-old emerged from his 12-round showdown against Bivol with credit and at Return of the King next month, will have the bit between his teeth, ready to remind everyone why he is one of the leading 175lbs fighters on the planet.

But Arthur must overcome the highly motivated Cameron, who wants to make up for lost time after ending a five-year absence from the ring, late last year.

And the Sheffield fighter, a former national amateur champion, faces Arthur in destructive form having KO’d his last two opponents in the first round.

Lyndon Arthur said: “On June 21, I make my return and I’m ready to start getting back into the title picture.   
“Cameron is hungry for this, and coming to ruin my plans, but I simply won’t allow him to restart his career with a win over me.  It’s just not happening.” 

Liam Cameron said: “Everybody knows what I have been through, but the struggle will be all worth it, when I cause a huge upset on June 21.
“A win over Lyndon Arthur will take my career to a whole new level and opportunities as good as this one don’t come around very often, so I am going to make the most of it.
“This will be a life-changing night for me.”

Kalle Sauerland, Head of Global Boxing at Wasserman, said: “Boxing fans will witness a new, and improved, more confident, vicious, and devastating Lyndon Arthur on June 21, mark my words.

“Over the past 12 months, Lyndon reinforced his position as one of the very best light heavyweight fighters in the world, winning the IBO world title in dramatic fashion, which set up his huge Saudi showdown with Bivol last year.

“In Bolton next month, he launches a campaign to be king of the division once again and while Cameron comes into this highly motivated and knowing he can change his career with a win, Arthur has taken his game to new levels.”
