In the primary occasion Lyndon Arthur (19-1) made an emphatic return to the ring and was as spiteful as he stated he can be within the build-up this week in response to shedding to Anthony Yarde in a rematch in December final yr. He confronted Walter Sequeira, a tricky Argentine who got here with a very good report of 25-9-1 with 17 knockout victories to his title.
