British light heavyweight Ben Whittaker showcased his dominance in a commanding victory over Eworitse Ezra Arenyeka in a highly-anticipated co-main event clash at Selhurst Park in London. The event, broadcasted on Sky Sports and Peacock+, featured an electrifying ringwalk set to the tunes of music icons Missy Elliott and Drake.

Whittaker, the 2020 Olympic Silver medalist, strolled into the ring amidst an orchestra-backed entrance, setting the stage for what would be a one-sided showdown against unbeaten rival Arenyeka. The crowd at Selhurst Park was treated to a unique blend of musical performances and athletic prowess, solidifying Whittaker’s growing reputation in the sport.

A heated build-up to the fight saw tensions rise between Whittaker and Arenyeka, with the latter resorting to taunts and showboating during the early rounds. However, Whittaker’s technical skill and defensive prowess quickly overshadowed Arenyeka’s bravado, as the British boxer took control of the bout with precise jabs and powerful combinations.

Arenyeka, known for his aggressive style, found himself unable to break through Whittaker’s solid defense, leading to a series of failed offensive attempts. Despite a few moments of flare-ups, including a headbutt and an elbow from Arenyeka, Whittaker maintained his composure and continued to dictate the pace of the fight.

As the rounds progressed, Whittaker’s superior footwork and ring generalship became more apparent, frustrating Arenyeka and limiting his effectiveness. Whittaker’s strategic switch to southpaw added another layer of complexity for his opponent, showcasing the young boxer’s versatility and adaptability in the ring.

In the final moments of the fight, Whittaker unleashed a barrage of punches that had Arenyeka reeling, but the bell signaled the end of the bout before a knockout could be secured. With the judges scoring the fight unanimously in favor of Whittaker, the British fighter celebrated a convincing win and solidified his position as a rising star in the light heavyweight division.
