There are number of undercard fights scheduled on the night Shayne Singleton to take on highly rated Adil Anwar and several UK established boxers are also set to feature on the night including Martin Murray.
Looking at the record of these two Barroso comes across as more accomplished boxer and with much more power considering his 18 knockouts in last 19 fights including that of Kevin Mitchell a few months back. Crolla on the other hand was injured badly on his skull and leg when he was robbed by buglers but since than he has came out stronger and won the world title.
