FORMER British champion Anthony Crolla has completed arguably the strongest line-up in Prizefighter history.

The Joe Gallagher-trained lightweight could come face-to-face again with Derry Matthews, who took the championship from him in April.

Stephen Jennings, Terry Needham and Nathan Brough will form the home contingent at the Liverpool Olympia in October 6, joining Kieran Farrell, another ex-British boss in former super-featherweight champion Gary Skyes, and Liam Patrick Walsh.

“I never expected a line-up quite like this, but Anthony’s inclusion is the icing on the cake,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

“Ideally we would’ve loved to have this in a 5,000-seater arena but the fans will experience an atmosphere like never before in the Liverpool Olympia and this is a must watch night of boxing.”

Rocky Fielding will also challenge Wayne Reed for the Central Area super middleweight title on the Sky Sports televised show.
