By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - Boxing Results for Derry Mathews vs. Anthony Crolla and John-Lewis Dickinson vs. Matty Askin.

On Saturday night at the Sports Centre in Oldham, Lancashire, in what is being described as an upset, Anthony Crolla lost his British lightweight title after being stopped in the 6th round by Derry Mathews.

The fight was a war.  Crolla came on strong in the opening first two rounds, but Mathews stepped up the pace in the 3rd round, flooring Crolla. Crolla was cut in the 4th (top of his left eye.)

The referee waved the fight off in the 6th round after Crolla took a barrage of punch combinations and stumbled on the ropes.

With the victory, Derry Mathews' professional record improves to 30-6-1, with 16KOs. Anthony Crolla sees his record drop to 23-3, with 9KOs.

The co-feature seemed to be yet another upset as John-Lewis Dickinson handed Matty Askin his first professional loss, defeating Askin with a 10 round unanimous decision.  Judges at ringside handed in scores of 97-93 (twice) and 98-93 for the winner, Dickinson. 

John-Lewis Dickinson professional record now stands at 11-2, with 3KOs. Matty Askin sees his record drop to 13-1, 9KOs .
