Anthony Crolla grabs final 'Prizefighters' slot
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.
The Manchester man will be gunning for revenge against local favourite Derry Mathews who ripped his British title away from him in Oldham in April in a shock sixth round stoppage. The hotly tipped 25 year old from Manchester also has a score to settle with another high profile former British champ in the line-up, with Dewsbury’s ex-British super featherweight strap holder Gary Sykes defeating him in an eliminator for the title in May 2009.
‘Prizefighter is back with a bang with our strongest line-up ever,’ said promoter Eddie Hearn. ‘I never expected a dream line-up like this and Anthony’s inclusion is the icing on the cake. Ideally we would’ve loved to have this in a 5,000-seater arena but the fans will experience an atmosphere like never before in the Liverpool Olympia and this is a must see night of boxing on Sky Sports on October 6.’
Tickets for ‘Rocky and the Betfair Prizefighters’ on Saturday October 6 at Liverpool Olympia are priced at priced £30 unreserved, £50 reserved floor seats and £100 VIP and are on sale now from Matchroom Sport on 01277 359900 and at www.matchroomboxing.com
