Lyndon Arthur, a British professional boxer, has had an accomplished career in both the amateur and professional ranks. During his amateur days, he had around 50 bouts and represented Collyhurst & Moston ABC. He competed in various national championships, including reaching the finals of the 2012-13 ABA National Development Championships at 86 kg, where he finished as the runner-up to Jermaine Kelly. At 81 kg, he won the 2013-14 ABA Senior Development Championships and also reached the finals of the 2014 and 2016 ABA Elite Championships, finishing as the runner-up to Joshua Buatsi and Tom Whittaker-Hart, respectively. In 2016, he was part of the British Lionhearts team in the World Series of Boxing.
Lyndon Arthur began his professional boxing career on 24 September 2016 with a victory over Andy Neylon via a four-round points decision at the Manchester Arena. He continued his success in the pro circuit and gained a disqualification win over Tayar Mehmed on 4 November 2017 after Mehmed was repeatedly warned for spitting out his gum-shield.
In his sixteenth professional fight, with a record of 15-0 (12 KO), Arthur faced Emmanuel Anim for the vacant Commonwealth light-heavyweight title on 12 October 2019 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. Arthur showed his skill and determination by dropping Anim in the fourth round and went on to win a unanimous decision, with judges scoring the fight 117-111, 117-110, and 115-113 in his favor.
He was scheduled to defend his title against Anthony Yarde on 11 April 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the fight was rescheduled to 5 December 2020. In that bout, Arthur achieved a significant victory, defeating Yarde via Split Decision to retain his Commonwealth light-heavyweight title and claim the vacant WBO Inter-Continental light-heavyweight title.
However, in their rematch on 4 December 2021, Yarde managed to secure a knockout victory over Arthur in the 4th round. Despite the loss, Lyndon Arthur’s career has been marked by notable achievements and competitive performances in the light-heavyweight division.
