Norwich to dominate Liverpool, says Sexton

Sam Sexton reckons Liverpool sporting fans will be sick of Norwich by the middle of next month.
The proud Norwich heavyweight is predicting a sporting double starting on Saturday when Paul Lambert’s men face Liverpool at Carrow Road. But big Sam (15-2) believes the biggest shock will happen when he travels to Merseyside and challenges David Price (12-0) for the vacant British and Commonwealth crowns.

The bruisers clash at Aintree Racecourse on Saturday May 19th and both are promising plenty of thrills and spills at the world famous Grand National home.
Sexton, 27, said, “I reckon Norwich has a great chance of beating Liverpool this weekend and I aim to complete a famous sporting double. Price is a good fighter and I have the upmost respect for him, but I will take him to places he has never been. I have fought far better quality opponents and I think that will show.”
Both of the former Commonwealth champion’s losses have come against Dereck Chisora and he insists, “I will be in the shape of my life for David. I have had some brilliant sparring with Richard Towers who is 6ft 8in tall just like David.”
In the chief support Ashley Theophane (31-4-1) defends his British light-welterweight crown against local Steve Williams (12-1). A special attraction sees classy Leeds boxer Adil Anwar (16-1) tackle Lenny Daws (23-2-2) in a vacant English title and eliminator for Theophane’s crown.
Other fights include: John Donnelly (13-2) v Mike Robinson (5-4-3) (English super-flyweight title), Paul Edwards (9-1) v Kevin Satchel (7-0) vacant English flyweight title, Bob Ajisafe (9-2) v Travis Dickinson (12-0) English light-heavyweight crown.

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Scott Quigg

Bury's Scott Quigg retained his WBA world super bantamweight title at the Phones 4 U Arena with a second round stoppage of South African Tshifhiwa Munyai, and now looks towards unification fights with Leo Santa Cruz, Kiko Martinez and, hopefully at some point, Carl Frampton.
