Composite Wood Company in Anthony Crolla’s Corner

As Anthony Crolla prepares to face Vasyl Lomachenko for the WBA (Super), WBO and The Ring lightweight titles on April 12th, we are excited to announce our sponsorship of the Mancunian boxing great.

Composite Wood Company have proudly supported Team Crolla over the last couple of years with recent fights giving us some memorable experiences.

Our relationship will take another step forward when the Composite Wood Company logo takes up residence on Saturday’s ring and entrance gear.

This is a landmark moment for us with the fight airing live from the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on Sky Sports Main Event and ESPN+.

Vasyl Lomachenko has a fierce reputation as one of the most formidable fighters on the planet and is widely regarded as the pound-for-pound greatest in the sport today.

Be that as it may, Crolla is intensely focused on defying the odds to upset the unified lightweight world champion. It’s an underdog story we’re right behind.

Speaking in a recent interview with BNTV, he said:

“He’s an unbelievable fighter, but every man has weaknesses and no one is invincible. He is that good, but [other fighters] have recently had [more] success so I can watch and study clips of that to try and emulate it in my own way.”

 

Despite having only 13 contests as a professional, the two-time Olympic gold medallist Lomachenko has won world titles across three weight classes. He prized the WBA Lightweight title, along with The Ring lightweight titles, from Jorge Linares who had previously beaten Crolla in 2016 and 2017.

Let’s not forget that Crolla has reached the pinnacle of the world stage before, holding the WBA Lightweight title between 2015 and 2016 after a Manchester Arena win over Darleys Pérez. We know that Anthony will be fully intent on creating a massive moment in boxing history and we’re backing him all the way.

 

“It’s going to take a career-best performance or punch, I’m a huge underdog. But I’m not going over there for the experience, I’m going over there to shock the world.”

 

We recently fitted one of our prefabricated garden rooms at Anthony’s home. Despite the weather, Lee and the team only needed a day and a half to get the structure up and watertight.

Everyone at Composite Wood Company wishes Anthony the very best of luck on the night. He’s already done the city of Manchester proud and we are over the moon to be backing him as he plans to shock the world.
