Lyndon Arthur TKO10 Braian Suarez... Lyndon Arthur dragged himself up off the canvas to stop Braian Suarez in the tenth round with a body shot to become the new IBO light heavyweight champion. Shown live and free-to-air on Channel 5 in the UK and Ireland, and live on DAZN globally, the Wasserman Boxing show delivered drama, excitement and two of the best title contests witnessed in a British ring in 2023. Arthur, who was dropped in the fourth round, said: "I weathered the storm, kept using the jab and caught him with a good body shot and he went down. I've got a good chin, I can take a shot and don't mind going to war. Suarez was one tough opponent, he had 17 knockouts from 18 fights, but I weathered the storm and stopped him with that body shot."
Kalle Sauerland, Head of Global Boxing at Wasserman Boxing, said: "What a fantastic story and moments like this are what free-to-air boxing is all about. He showed heroics by getting off the canvas, against a fantastic, heavy-handed boxer, weathering the storm and then putting it on him in great fashion. Britain has a new champion, we're thrilled for Manchester and we'll come back with another huge show with him very soon. I am so privileged to be part of this journey."
Samuel Antwi TKO12 Mason Cartwright... Following Arthur's comeback victory, Samuel Antwi claimed the vacant British junior middleweight title by brutally halting Mason Cartwright in the twelfth round of a thrilling Fight of the Year candidate. The new British champion, Samuel Antwi said: "This has been ten years in the making, there have been ups and downs but it was worth it. I was told I needed to win the last two rounds so I started putting more on the shots, I pushed it and it was a spectacular knockout. What an amazing feeling to win this title. Now let's see how far we can go."
