Review: 2014-09-13, when a fight ends in this way we can’t give more than two stars… Anthony Crolla entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 28-4-1 (11 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.15 lightweight in the world, he suffered two consecutive defeats in 2012, against Derry Mathews and Gary Sykes, but since then he collected five victories and one draw (the rematch against Mathews).
His opponent, Gamaliel Diaz, has an official record of 38-11-2 (17 knockouts) and he entered as the No.66 in the same weight class, he lost twice in 2013, against Takashi Miura and Dante Jardon (=Jardon vs Diaz), but he came back to win in 2014 beating the unknown Eduardo Canales. Crolla vs Diaz is valid for the WBO Inter-Continental lightweight title (Crolla’s third defense); undercard of Scott Quigg vs Stephane Jamoye. Watch the video and rate this fight!
