Comments Thread For: Gallagher Confident Crolla Will Get Glory at Prizefighter
By Adam Norman
Trainer Joe Gallagher is confident Anthony Crolla can use Prizefighter as a platform for further title glory this weekend.
Crolla is one of the main draws in the latest instalment of the eight-man event, featuring some of the best lightweights in the UK.
The 25-year-old is on the comeback trail after losing the British title to Derry Mathews - whom he could face in Saturday's final - earlier this year.
Gallagher took his brightest talents to the famous Wild Card gym in LA recently and the trip gave Crolla the spark he needed.
"Crolla's had time to come away, let his injuries heal," he told Sky Sports. "He's had good training at the Wild Card and that was a good confidence builder.
"He sparred some good kids over there, and it gave him a lot of belief and confidence.
"The Mathews defeat was a bit of a car-crash, and as such it takes a bit of time to get over it. But the Wild Card experience brought him back and we've had around 16 sparring partners before Prizefighter to keep the variety going." [Click Here To Read More]
