Review: 2014-04-19, very nice fight thanks to a great performance by both boxers: Anthony Crolla vs John Murray gets three stars. Anthony Crolla entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 27-4-1 (10 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.25 lightweight in the world, he lost twice in 2012, against Derry Mathews and Gary Sykes, but since then he has collected four wins, one draw (the rematch against Mathews) and he managed to win the WBO Inter-Continental Lw belt defeating Gavin Rees (=Rees vs Crolla).
His opponent, John Murray, has a record of 33-2-0 (20 knockouts) and he entered as the No.61 in the same weight class, he suffered his only two defeats in 2011: the first time against Kevin Mitchell (=Mitchell vs Murray) and the second was defeated by Brandon Rios in a bout valid for the vacant WBA World lightweight title (=Rios vs Murray). Crolla vs Murray is valid for the WBO Inter-Continental lightweight title (Crolla’s second defense); undercard of Scott Quigg vs Tshifhiwa Munyai. Watch the video and rate this fight!
