The latest edition of the Betfred Boxing show saw Anthony Crolla join Dom McGuinness to look back on this weekend’s action, which further intensified the domestic light-heavyweight scene.
Saturday evening saw Lyndon Arthur’s win over Davide Faraci which likely sets up a rematch with Anthony Yarde, a battle that Crolla emphasised would be completely different to the pair’s first clash last year.
Moving down the weights, Lerrone Richards also joined the lads as he underlined his ambitions to capture the world title and reach the pinnacle of the sport, a journey he believes is bolstered by the knowledge and mentorship of his new trainer Dave Coldwell.
The show touted a fight between Richard and Rocky Fielding, one that would inevitably enliven the appetite of British fight fans and excel one of them to world level.
As fights are being made at domestic level, bouts are being hindered at world stage, with the delay of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder leaving fight fans frustrated.
It comes after much chaos within the heavyweight ranks after the widely touted battle between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua falling through following a court ruling.
Nonetheless, this weekend marks a key undisputed fight as Crolla and McGuinness looked ahead to Jermell Charlo and Brian Castano, opening up a stellar period for the boxing schedule and marking a significant test for Charlo.
The show concluded with Crolla’s surprising perspective on this year’s Love Island, as the former world champion questioned how many Islanders are there for ‘true love’ and how many are there for deals with fashion brands.
