Derry Mathews Sends a Chilling Warning Over To Crolla

DERRY MATHEWS has delivered a chilling warning to British lightweight champion Anthony Crolla (23-2).

The Liverpool man (29-6-1) challenges for ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla’s cherished Lonsdale belt at Oldham Sports Centre on Saturday night (April 21).

He warned: “Anthony has never been cut, been floored and got up to win.

“He is like John Murray. He comes forward, is very brave but never been hit and that is what I am going to put to him.

“I am going to take him to places he has never been before.”

Mathews, 28, also insists he has not been troubled by a nose injury that has handicapped him in recent fights.

He challenged Gavin Rees for the European crown last October, but the fight ended in a technical draw because of unlucky Derry’s broken nose.

Cut also played a part in a setback against unbeaten Italian Ermano Marsili in January.

Mathews added: I have had excellent sparring with Alex Arthur and Steve Williams. I have done over 40 rounds and my nose has held up.

“I have had it checked by a surgeon and everything is all right.”

Crolla is much improved. He'll stop Mathews by halfway and put himself in the mix for bigger stuff.

Was expecting to read Matthews had sent Crolla a horses head or something.
