Reckless Eddie Hearn delivers yet another lamb to the slaughter as Anthony Crolla is destroyed by Vasyl Lomachenko in the 4th round of their WBA/WBO Lightweight bout in Los Angeles.

 

Many British fight fans raised their concerns across social media when it was announced that Anthony Crolla would be challenging arguably the best boxer of his generation in Vasyl Lomachenko for the WBA and WBO Lightweight Championships of the world. Former WBA Lightweight Champion Anthony Crolla had previously suffered back to back defeats to Jorge Linares who himself suffered at the brutal hands of Lomachenko back in May 2018. Therefore this led many fight fans to believe why Eddie Hearn would agree such a mismatch for his fighter.

As many anticipated Crolla was completely out of his depth and looked like he did not belong in the same ring with the Ukrainian, who hunted his man down from the opening bell.  Crolla took a ferocious beating at the end of the third round but amazingly his corner allowed him to come out for the fourth.  Thereafter the manner in which Crolla went down was very disturbing to watch with the inevitable coming to pass.

 

This isn’t the first time Eddie Hearn has behaved irresponsibly when promoting his fighters. In September ‘16 Eddie Hearn delivered Kell Brook to Gennady Golokvin when negotiations between Golovkin and Chris Eubank Jr fell though. This resulted in Kell Brook getting his face broken in the fifth round and his career has never recovered.

In December ‘18 Eddie Hearn agreed another mismatch with Rocky Fielding to defend his WBA ‘Regular’ Middleweight strap against Canelo Alvarez.  We won’t bother reminding you how competitive that fight was.

During Anthony Crolla’s post fight interview he stated that he found Lomachenko very hard to hit, but in all honesty this was probably due to the fact that Crolla was too busy taking a beating. Crolla failed to use his post fight interview to call time on his career and suggested fighting again back in Manchester. However at the age of 32 and a former world champion we can hardly see the point and hope that Crolla can lay the ego to rest.
