Anthony Crolla beats Ismael Barroso with a 7th round knockout!

Anthony Crolla retained his WBA Lightweight World Title in the Manchester Arena with a 7th round stoppage of heavy hitter Ismael Barroso.

Crolla had to defend hard in the early rounds to keep himself from being hit by big puncher Barroso but his tactics were spot on and as Barroso tired in round 5 Crolla took over the fight.

With Barroso running on empty by round seven, a few hard body shots by Crolla ended what was an extremely exiting fight.

Anthony Crolla was robbed.

Anthony Crolla was robbed for his world title fight against Perez, in the Manchester arena last evening.

He seemed to be just ahead all through the fight and then when Perez was dedected a point in two late rounds due to persistently throwing low blows it seemed to everyone except the scoring judges, that Crolla was pulling away and easily won the fight.

However the judges seen it differently.  With ones of the judges scoring Crolla well ahead, another had Perez well ahead and one scored the fight 13-13. So with a split drawn decision the clear loser on the night, Perez, as the reigning world title holder kept hold of his title to the massive disappointment of the Manchester crowd.

Hopefully Perez will agree to a rematch and give Crolla the chance to win the title again, as this was a shocking decision!
