Anthony Crolla, Sparring, fighting, persevering and retiring
Nice write up on BBC Sport featuring Ed Harrison, Craig Sumner and Stephen 'swifty' Smith who took part in Anthony Crolla's last ever sparring session. The sparring partners rotated to give Crolla his last ever 12 rounds of sparring in the lead up to his final fight. Kingscote boxing head coach Ed said "It was a real honour to be involved with Crolla's last ever training camp. Craig has loved sharing the ring with a former world champion and opportunities like this can't be missed. We would like to thank Kieran Farrell BEM for setting up the sparring and Joe Gallagher's awesome hospitality. Everyone one in the gym was extremely friendly and we got to see Callum Smith, Sam Hyde, Liam Smith, Stephen Smith, Paul Butler and a few other top fighters sparring".
