Default Crolla V Matthews predictions

Decent scrap this, Mathews certainly underated fighter by many and I see him providing Crolla with a tough test here and don't think he has been in with someone of Mathews level yet.

I see Crolla's skill just being enough to grind past Mathews in a close affair

It lasts for as long as it takes for Crolla to land on Derry's nose.

Good fight is this.

Matthews maybe able to nick a few of the first 6 rounds, but Crolla's accuracy and workrate will wear Derry down.

Crolla TKO 10.

Askin/Dickinson could be FOTN.

Askin has the talent, but is still inexperienced. 50/50 fight IMO.

I really like Crolla, the most improved british boxer at the moment IMO.

I think he will be far to quick for Derry, and stop him around the 8th

Can't see past Crolla winning this one, probably mid to late. Can see Derry getting pulled out.

Too much work-rate, too fresh. I think a few of us saw the Marsili bout coming and as much as the Italian was awkward, Crolla will bring a similar intensity.

i fancy dickinson to beat Askin.

Crolla wins a UD for me. Matthews has heart and Crolla lacks true power at LW.

Fighters with less power than Crolla have stopped Matthews.

Crolla's going to be banging that drum all night, and Derry has always been susceptible to the body...

I dont think that Crolla will be too quick Derry has very fast and accurate hands. Its the pressure Derry cant deal with he is brave and has heart but he is vulnerable and thats a fact sadly.

I see him getting broken down to the body and possible corner retirement. I love Derry though always comes to fight and brings the entertainment.
