Lyndon Arthur returns to action in Bolton on June 21st. The former Commonwealth light heavyweight champion will box Liam Cameron on a Wasserman show. The fight will be screened in the UK on Channel 5. 

Arthur, 23-2 (16 KOs), will box for the first time since losing a unanimous decision to WBA champion, Dmitry Bivol, in Saudi Arabia last December. 

The 32-year-old remains a major player in an active domestic 175lb scene. With his former opponent, Anthony Yarde, and Joshua Buatsi struggling to finalise their fight and Craig ‘Spider’ Richards and Willy Hutchinson due to meet on the Queensberry Vs. Matchroom ‘5 Vs. 5’ card on June 1st, Arthur will be keen to make a statement and remind people exactly what he is capable of.

“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,” Arthur said. “It’s just not happening.” 

The Mancunian represents a huge step up in quality for former Commonwealth middleweight champion, Cameron, 23-5 (10 KO’s), who will be taking part in his fourth fight since returning from five years out of the ring. The 33-year-old was hit with a four-year ban after testing positive for cocaine and then spent 12 months getting himself back into shape after ballooning in weight.

“Everybody knows what I have been through, but the struggle will be all worth it, when I cause a huge upset on June 21,” Cameron said. “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.”

Sheffield’s Cameron returned to action last October and has worked his way down to the light heavyweight limit against moderate opposition but he will catapult himself back to prominence should he shock Arthur.
