|Anthony Crolla: Still the British lightweight champion|
A million Dollar smile, a Million Dollar performance, from the Million Dollar kid Anthony Crolla, who unanimously outpointed Scotland’s Willie Limond to retain his British lightweight title, with a measured pin point performance at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre, Motherwell, Scotland on Friday night.
But the champion, always composed, calm and in control in this first defence of his Lonsdale belt was far superior to his challenger in all departments.
John Thain beat Steve Spence points over 4 rounds 40-36.
Stephen Simmons beat John Anthony points over 6 rounds 60-55.
Matthew Hall beat Chris Castle points over 10 rounds UD (94-96, 96-94, 97-95).
