Manchester Hero Anthony Crolla Backs Lyndon Arthur to Win IBO World Title and Secure Big Fights

Former world champion Anthony Crolla has thrown his support behind Lyndon Arthur ahead of his IBO world title fight against Braian Nahuel Suarez. Crolla believes that Arthur has the ability to become a major player in the light heavyweight division and pave the way for some exciting showdowns with other top UK fighters.

Crolla, who himself was a beloved figure in Manchester boxing, has urged Arthur to seize the opportunity presented by the IBO title and use it to secure bigger fights. He noted that many great fighters, including Klitschko and Golovkin, have held the IBO belt and that it can be a powerful bargaining tool.

Arthur, a product of the famous Collyhurst and Moston ABC, already has a win over Anthony Yarde and has been identified as a rising star in the light heavyweight division. Crolla believes that a victory over Suarez will put him in contention for some major fights against other top fighters in the UK.

According to Crolla, the light heavyweight division is one of the strongest in the UK and Arthur has the talent to become a major player. He added that Arthur has the potential to deliver some massive nights of boxing to Manchester and that the IBO title will be a key factor in securing big fights at the Manchester Arena.

Crolla’s support for Arthur highlights the importance of having local heroes in boxing and the role they play in generating excitement and support for the sport. With Arthur’s fight against Suarez set to be broadcast live and free-to-air on Channel 5 tonight, it is clear that there is still a strong appetite for boxing in the UK and a hunger for local fighters to succeed on the world stage.

As the fight approaches, all eyes will be on Lyndon Arthur to see if he can seize the opportunity and become the next big thing in UK boxing.
