Prizefighter Lightweights lineup completed

Anthony ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla has taken the final spot in the Prizefighter Lightweights line-up to complete the list of boxers in action at Liverpool Olympia. Crolla will be gunning for revenge against local favorite Derry Mathews who ripped his British title away from him in April in a shock sixth round stoppage. Crolla also has a score to settle with another former British champ in the line-up in Gary Sykes who defeated him in May 2009. The rest of the lineup includes Stephen Jennings, Terry Needham, Nathan Brough, ‘Vicious’ Kieran Farrell and Liam Patrick Walsh. This is the 26th edition of Matchroom Sport’s eight man, one night tournament with a £32,000 winner’s check.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
