Central Area lightweight champion Kieran Farrell recently told us that his December 7th English title fight against Anthony Crolla is, In one word ‘Tasty!’ And we certainly agree with that.
 
Former British champion Crolla (23-4) against up coming unbeaten fellow Mancunian in the fiery Farrell (14-0) at the Bowlers Arena, Trafford Park, in the heart of the biggest Industrial Estate in Europe, is yes, very ‘Tasty’ 

Given the Industrial setting for this meeting of British lightweight contenders, another word could used to sum up this fight, industrious! Both are hard working, come forward aggressors, both throw many punches per round, neither are willing to give ground or take a backwards step, and as the late great commentator Reg Gutteridge used to quip; ‘This one could be fought in a telephone box’.

The fight will be promoted by Dave Coldwell, who is putting on a cracker here for the fans. Apparently this fight isn’t being shown on TV? Hey come on get a grip TV! – Tickets for the fight have almost sold-out and there would be a clamour to watch it on the box! So any Broadcasters who have somehow managed to accidentally miss this potential corker off your schedule, don’t worry here are the promoters details below, but hurry up, someone might beat you to it!
