Lyndon Arthur v Braian Nahuel Suarez: Fight date, Tale of the Tape, Undercard & Odds

Lyndon Arthur has had to wait patiently for his fight against Braian Nahuel Suarez for the vacant IBO world light heavyweight title and the Manchester fighter will be determined to seize his opportunity on Friday 1st September.

Arthur and Suarez were scheduled to meet at the University of Bolton Stadium in March but the Argentinian had to withdraw due to a fitness issue just 24 hours before the fight.

'King' Arthur beat Suarez's replacement Boris Crighton on points after a dominant 12-round performance but his main objective in 2023 has always been the title clash with the Argentinian which has now finally materialised.

Of the five leading men in the British light-heavyweight division, Lyndon Arthur is on the outside looking in.

Callum Smith takes on Artur Beterbiev in January, Anthony Yarde is proven at the highest level, while Joshua Buatsi and Dan Azeez are closing in on a world title shot.

Arthur’s win over Anthony Yarde in December 2021 was proof that on his best day his skillset can trouble the best in Britain. 

Just beating Braian Suarez on September 1 isn’t enough. A dominating performance is a must against the Argentine fighter who is exciting to watch but defensively suspect.

Defeat for Arthur is simply not an option.

Lyndon Arthur Profile:

Against Braian Suarez, there is evidence to suggest that Lyndon Arthur could have things all his own way.

The Argentine is a come forward South American bull whose style should play into Arthur’s hands, and Arthur would have no problem playing the role of a Mancunian Matador.

His laser jab should be able to pick off the on-rushing Suarez who isn’t difficult to find.

One downside to an opponent like this is Arthur can’t invite pressure, spend too long on the ropes and, as he often does, seek perfection. 

Suarez will unload everything he has at any opportunity and will hit any part of Arthur’s anatomy. 

A win for Arthur would give him the IBO title at 175lbs. This is not a world title, but it gives him a bargaining chip to land better fights. 

Between Arthur and Suarez there is a significant gulf in skill, but South American fighters don’t stop until the referee steps in. And he has proven he can get off the canvas and win having been dropped three times in his last three fights. 

Arthur doesn’t often let his hands go and this is the perfect opportunity to do so and prove that he is a level above the opponent in front of him on 1st September.

Braian Nahuel Suarez Profile

Braian Suarez is your typical all-action Latino fighter that takes as many as he lands. 

His suspect chin makes him exciting to watch but there is a lack of basics, which he likely possesses, that he chooses to ignore. 

Beating Lyndon Arthur will change his life and if the Briton isn’t at 100% Suarez will throw the kitchen sink until he has nothing left. 

Getting involved in a boxing contest isn’t going to end well for the Argentinian so he must go all out. 

It will be boxer vs brawler, and history has shown that the latter can overcome the sweet science from time to time.
