McCrory and Nelson: going head-to-head for charity

McCrory and Nelson: going head-to-head for charity

The Sky Sports pundit was not only at York Hall to see the Welshman scoop £32,000 and the light-welterweight title, but he also backed him to win.

McCrory and colleague Johnny Nelson are going head-to-head for charity by predicting the outcomes of the major fights, usually live on Sky Sports.

The pair are donating their winnings to Children With Cancer and UK Parkinsons respectively, but it is the former that is ahead on the cards.

McCrory had taken the first round by backing Anthony Crolla to beat Gavin Rees and doubled his lead this week by predicting Wales would be smiling thanks to Jenkins.

Delighted

"What can I say, I've won again!" said McCrory. "I am delighted because the Prizefighter line-up was made of guys we hadn't heard of or seen.

"There is usually a bit of luck involved, especially if Johnny Nelson picks a winner, but Jenkins was good. Very good."

Unsurprisingly, both pundits predicted a revenge win for David Price against Tony Thompson which meant that Prizefighter was the decider.

The eight boxers were far from famous but McCrory's man Jenkins won all three fights with ease while Nelson's pick, Liam Shinkwin, was beaten in the first round.

It mean McCrory came out on top again and is now 2-0 ahead - and with £200 up for grabs every week, he has doubled the prize money!

This weekend, we have Olympic hero Luke Campbell making his pro debut in front of his home fans in Hull, Anthony Ogogo in action, Kell Brook facing Carson Jones again and Derry Mathews taking on another local lad, Tommy Coyle!

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
