In the last round of their main-event clash, Yarde planted some brutal body shots. They were enough to take out one’s soul, but Arthur regained his position till the fight ended.
According to Arthur, he felt the pain on a couple of occasions. Nevertheless, he claimed to have overcome the fight comfortably and billed himself as the real winner.
‘King Arthur’ said, “I wasn’t hurt. The body shot is what hurt me.”
He added, “I am not lying when I am saying this s****. The punch knocked me off balance because I came when I was screwed up. I came square one as he hit me with the right hand. So not enough ones a bit, I didn’t feel (anything).”
