CROLLA WINS AND GETS WORLD TITLE SHOT AGAINST ABRIL

World lightweight contender Anthony Crolla improved his record to (29-4-2, 11KO’s) with a 60-54 shut out victory over former European title challenger Gyorgy Mizsei Jr in Dublin, Ireland this evening.

All waited with baited breath for the fight to reach a conclusion as a fight with WBA lightweight world champion Richar Abril had been agreed for January 23rd earlier in the day, with the Crolla team and management hoping for no cuts or hand injuries.

WBO #4 contender Crolla will get his shot at the ultimate crown on home turf as promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom managed to secure the shot at the Manchester Phones 4 U Arena after the Christmas break.
