By Scott Gilfoid: Anthony Crolla was outclassed in his previous fight with Jorge Linares last September in losing a 12 round unanimous decision. That was against an injured Linares, who fought with a hurt right hand from round 6 on. This Saturday, Crolla (31-5-3, 13 KOs) will attempt to beat a healthy Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) to win his WBA World lightweight title, as well as the WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine lightweight belts at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

By Lyle Fitzsimmons - Let’s get a few things out of the way. I scored Saturday night’s fight 114-113 in favor of Danny Jacobs, but in no way do I believe – contrary to many of the social media troll persuasion – that the word “robbery” in any way applies to the goings-on at the world’s most famous midtown Manha....

In 1935, Millier departed and the owner replaced him with Sydney Ackland, who had previously worked as John Murray's assistant editor and had been taught by him. World War II brought many changes as first Sydney, then replacement Stanley Nelson, contributed to the war effort. Murray made a popular comeback as editor but ill health forced him to step down in 1941. Gilbert Odd took over until the building housing the paper was destroyed by the enemy. Odd was then called up for national service and both Masters and Murray served further terms. Now with the new name of Boxing News, the paper was bought by Australian publicist Vivian Brodzky and former promoter Sydney Hulls. Northern sports writer Bert Callis was the new editor. Odd took over for a second term upon Callis’ retirement. Odd implemented the tradition of reporting the results and fighters' weights for every single fight in the country. When Odd quit to write books, he was succeeded by Jack Wilson and then Tim Riley. When Brodzky died, Boxing News was sold twice in quick succession, and Graham Houston became editor in 1971, immediately broadening the range of coverage, especially in North America. Houston left in 1977 to work on morning newspapers in Canada. This prompted the appointment of perhaps BN's greatest Editor of recent years, Harry Mullan. Circulation increased exponentially during the Mullan years, which doubled as a time of great change in the boxing world. Most notable new developments were the proliferation of ‘world’ titles and the increase in the number of major British promoters. Mullan was fiercely principled and tremendously well respected in the boxing fraternity. When Mullan left in October 1996, he was given this glowing tribute from then BN Publisher Peter Kravitz: "His writing stands comparison with the Lieblings, Hausers and Mailers of this century of boxing.
