Anthony Crolla speaks to Marc Gatford of The Sportsman ahead of his fight in Los Angeles with Vasyl Lomachenko, who is currently 12 wins from 13 with 9 by way of knockout.
In this piece Anthony Crolla talks Manchester United, Ricky Hatton and Love Island as The Sportsman unveils his Social Life and goes beyond just the usual interview before a big fight.
Crolla comes into the Lomachenko fight off the back of 3 wins, with his last fight as recent as November 2018, where he beat Daud Yordan by unanimous decision in his hometown of Manchester.
Prior to that, he beat Ricky Burns and Edson Ramirez, both by unanimous decision after going the distance.
However in our betting preview filmed not so long ago, Marc Gatford predicts a Vasyl Lomachenko win in Los Angeles against Anthony Crolla, which would give the Mancunian fighter his first defeat in over 2 years.
Let’s not forget, Anthony Crolla was the victim of a violent armed robbery of his house in 2014 and his recovery has been well documented, helping to elevate his name and profile in the sport as well as in the public interest. Crolla is a real tough fighter and one not to be ignored, but Marc believes that Vasyl Lomachenko is one-step-too-far for the plucky Brit this time around.
Anthony Crolla vs Vasyl Lomachenko takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the same venue where Tyson Fury fought Deontay Wilder in December 2018.
The fight is live on Sky Sports Main Event on Friday night, into Saturday morning in the UK and the ringwalk is expected to be at 5am, with coverage starting at around 3am.
