Arthur vs. Suarez – Channel 5 – Sept. 1 – 2 pm ET
Lyndon “King” Arthur and Braian Suarez are locked in to go toe-to-toe for the vacant IBO World Light Heavyweight title. You can catch it live and for free on Channel 5, come September 1.
They were set to clash last March, but Suarez had to back out due to a last-minute health issue. Arthur didn’t waste any time, defeating the substitute Boris Crighton, but he was quick to pivot his attention back to the IBO belt and Suarez.
Wasserman Boxing, in collaboration with Ladbrokes, Numan, and Infinitum Entertainment, managed to reschedule this much-awaited bout that’s been on Arthur’s radar for months.
Securing a W at the University of Bolton Stadium this fall could catapult either fighter into a series of blockbuster international matchups. For Manchester’s own Arthur, he’s not planning on squandering this high-stakes chance.
Arthur broke it down like this: “I’ve been laser-focused on this fight and on Suarez since the year kicked off. I can’t wait to step into the ring on September 1, school him, and wrap that IBO title around my waist.
“This isn’t just another match for me; it’s a game-changer. A win here not only upgrades my career but also puts Manchester in the spotlight big time.
“So, let’s get ready for the rise of King Arthur!”
