Anthony Crolla Tipped to Beat Ricky Burns In Manchester

There’s a big weekend of British boxing this weekend, Scotsman Ricky Burns will face Anthony Crolla, with the latter fighting in front of his own people in Manchester.

The winner of this lightweight clash will put himself firmly in contention for a world-title shot, the loser on the other hand will be wondering if their time is up in the sport.

Both fighters are coming off the back of defeats. Crolla’s last two bouts ended in consecutive defeats to world-champion Jorge Linares on points. Linares has just retained his title against Luke Campbell. Burns’ last fight resulted in him losing his WBA World Peso Superligero Title, he was defeated in Glasgow by Namibian Julius Indongo. There’s a lot at stake in this one.

‘Million Dollar’ Crolla will be too much for Burns to handle, Burns isn’t known for his knockout ability, and he will struggle to match Crolla’s energy. Crolla via a unanimous decision - 13/8 with Coral.

Chris Eubank JR will face Avni Yildirim in the quarter final of the new boxing super series in Stuttgart. Eubank currently holds the IBO world title, and if he is able to come through the quarter final with a win, the British public could be treated to a fight between Eubank JR and George Groves. His Turkish opponent has 16 wins on his record, he hasn’t yet lost.

Eubank’s power is something which Yildirim has yet to come up against. The speed and movement of Eubank will pay dividends. Eubank between rounds 7-9 - 13/2 with Betfair.

The undercard.

Sam Eggington defends his European title for the first time against Frenchman Mohamed Mimoune. Birmingham’s Eggington won the belt in May after he knocked out Cerefino Rodriquez. If Eggington successfully retains his title, he will be in prime position for a world-title opportunity. Having been defeated twice in 16 bouts, Mimoune will seriously struggle against Eggington’s dogged and vicious style, Eggington will be victorious between 4-6 (5/1 with Betfair.co.uk).
