HC Promotions ltd are delighted to give fight fans a unique opportunity to meet with one of the boxing industry’s biggest hitters when Former World Lightweight Champion Anthony Crolla comes to Warrington’s, Eagle Sports Club Thornton road WA5 2SZ.
Hear Anthony deliver his ‘heartache to hero’ testimony of how an angel-faced, meek-mannered adolescent stormed to a senior English ABA title whilst still in his teens, then embarked on a 13 year, 44 fight professional career that saw him reign on the British lightweight throne and, ultimately, conquer the boxing world.
Learn the inside details on Crolla’s dust-ups against fellow domestic champions like Brodie, Mathews, Rees, Murray and Burns. Discover how, with a first world title shot signed and sealed, both his career and life were jeopardised after he heroically confronted fleeing burglars one harrowing night in December 2014 that hit the national headlines and into the public consciousness.
That ordeal left Crolla nursing a fractured skull and broken ankle …in addition to broken dreams. Astonishingly, seven months later, he was back inside a world championship ring but, on this occasion, after dominating feared WBA World Champion Darleys Perez, got robbed by the judges who allowed the Columbian to retain courtesy of a highly contentious draw.
But this most driven of competitors refused to be deterred and, four months later, was finally coronated after puncturing Perez with a perfect body shot in round five.
The ‘Bible of Boxing’ Ring Magazine honoured the achievement by bestowing ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla with its Most Inspirational Fighter of the Year Award. Subsequently, Crolla shared the canvas with contemporary greats of his era like Jorge Linares and current pound-for-pound best Vasyl Lomachenko in memorable unification matches. Listen to Crolla’s assessment and your chance to ask him yourself a burning question
Anthony has contested six world title fights and dueled seven fellow world champions and throughout his illustrious career has served as the personification of class both inside and outside the ropes. He has been described as ‘the nicest guy in boxing’; the ultimate ambassador for the sport.
Followed by this unmissable night you will be able to watch the AJ vs Ruiz re-match on one of our 3 big screens and enjoy a pie supper all for the unbeatable price of £20 plus fee or £30 plus fee including professional pic taken with Anthony to take home.
This evening all hosted by interviewer to the stars and bliss fm sports pundit Charlie hale.
