Anthony ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla has taken the final spot in the Betfair Prizefighter Lightweights line-up to complete a fantastic list of boxers in action live on Sky Sports on October 6 at Liverpool Olympia.
Zab Judah claimed the IBF light-welterweight title with a seventh round knockout victory over South African contender Kaizer Mabuza at the Prudential Center, New Jersey.
It was an impressive performance by Judah who turned back the clock with a display of speed and defensive prowess, scoring a stunning knockout 59 seconds in the seventh round.
If British boxing could speak, it would sound like Steve Bunce. The charismatic pundit has been writing, talking and, more recently, shouting about the sport for over 25 years now. In fact, he's as much a personality as the men that inhabit the ring and would come up in the pound-for-pound rankings for the verbals outside it as well.
Now for some awesome shots from last weekend’s instalment of Prizefighter, which was a barnstorming night by all accounts. Welshman Gary Buckland came out on top and walked away with a cheque for £32,000 but all were winners in a night promoter Barry Hearn described as ‘British boxing at its best’.

Gary Buckland struck a mighty blow to Derry Mathews’ ribs to win the Prizefighter Super-Featherweights tournament at York Hall, Bethnal Green on a memorable night for British boxing.
The Welshman destroyed British champion Gary Sykes with a devastating knock out in the opening round of their semi-final before claiming the trophy and £32,000 winner’s cheque with a clinical second round knockout of Mathews in the final.
In the run-up to Prizefighter Super Featherweights on November 20th, Choi Tseveenpurev 'The Mongolian Warrior' has set about his opponents with a ferocious attack. Not a physical attack, but an assault on their eardrums.
