By SecondsOut.com on Doghouse Boxing. Anthony Crolla could meet Derry Mathews in the final of the Betfair Prizefighter Lightweights II at the Liverpool Olympia on Saturday night (October 6) live on Sky Sports.

  Mathews ripped the British title from Crolla in Oldham in April and the draw for Saturday’s action threw up the chance for revenge for the Manchester man as the pair landed in separate halves of the draw.  

Mathews kicks off the action against Northampton’s Jamie Spence and the winner of that clash will face either Patrick Liam Walsh or Terry Flannigan in the first semi-final.

  Crolla meets Liverpool’s Stephen Jennings in the third quarter-final, and could face another old foe in Gary Sykes. The Dewsbury stylist beat Crolla in May 2009, and Sykes meets Hull’s Tommy Coyle in the fourth quarter-final.  

Mathews is the favourite for the 26th edition of Prizefighter with Betfair, with rival Crolla at 12-5, Sykes is third favourite at 7-2 and Mathews’ fellow Liverpool fighter Jennings an 11-1 shot.   The draw:

QF 1: Jamie Spence vs. Derry Mathews

QF 2: Patrick Liam Walsh vs. Terry Flannigan

QF 3: Anthony Crolla vs. Stephen Jennings

QF 4: Gary Sykes vs. Tommy Coyle
