THE LOWDOWN

ANTHONY CROLLA

  • After suffering those two decision losses to Jorge Linares and losing his WBA title, Crolla won three on the bounce against Ricky Burns, Edson Ramirez and Daud Yordan. However, he is coming off a devastating knockout loss to Vasyl Lomachenko.
  • Crolla is the more skilful and complete fighter with a colossal experience advantage over Urquiaga as he has shared the ring with some of the best lightweights in the world.
  • Crolla makes his swansong at Manchester Arena, fittingly where he made his debut and where he won the WBA title against Darleys Perez. He will have all of the support and motivation to close the curtain on a stellar career.

FRANK URQUIAGA

  • After suffering the first loss of his career, Urquiaga bounced back with a win over Arturo Lopez but is coming off a draw with Ivan Tomas.
  • The only blemishes on Urquiaga’s record have come in his last three fights. Edis Tatli broke his unbeaten record by beating him via unanimous decision back in August last year.
  • Although Urquiaga does not have knockout power, he is a technician with great movement and speed and has earned the points in 11 of his 13 fights.

THE PREDICTION

Everything here points to a triumphant Crolla victory. This is his swansong at the Manchester Arena and he is up against an inexperienced opponent compared to recent foes. As Urquiaga has little knockout power, Crolla can afford to let his hands go and will do everything to finish his career on a high.

Winner: Crolla via KO/TKO
