Crolla V Burns fight lightweight contest – Manchester Arena “BRITISH BATTLE” – Sky Sports Action.

Ricky Burns vs Anthony Crolla big fight for lightweight division and the bout is on October 7, 2017 [England v Scotland fight]. This boxing match is between two UK former world champions Manchester’s Anthony Crolla and Scottish superstar Ricky Burns. Both fighters are coming off of defeats, and neither of them can afford a loss right now at this point in their careers. The 34-year-old Burns (41-6-1, 14 KOs) and Crolla (31-6-3, 13 KOs) fight is set for a lightweight battle but both of them are former world champion. So it is very hard to say who will win and who will lose. It is a very important fight for both men as it is thought that either could be pushed into retirement with a loss whilst the winner would likely get one more crack at a world title. Ricky Burns said, “Every fight is different”.

Crolla vs Burns big fight – Scotland and England collide in Manchester

Finally, I would like to say, it is England v Scotland fight and it is a prestigious fight for both contenders. Both are looking to bounce back from world title defeats and the winner could well get another shot at glory if they win this in style. The best man should win this fight. We don’t need the outcome to be tainted by bad judging or an over-involved referee taking points off left and right in the championship rounds. This one will probably go the distance with Burns well known for his durability and survival skills. But, Crolla should be the man with his hand raised at the end of the fight. Expect a bit of a bruiser, but we can see Crolla landing the more varied and accurate shots.
