Cody Crowley is looking to get into title contention
Undefeated Canada Professional Boxing Council National super welterweight champion Cody Crowley, will face fellow countryman Stuart McLellan (25-2-3, 10KOs).
Crowley (25), is a southpaw looking to make a jump into the world rankings. Since moving to Las Vegas, he has enjoyed training with some of best in the business. While training at Floyd Maywether’s gym, he has shared the ring with the likes of Zab Judah, Rance Barthelemy, Chris Algieri and Jorge Linares.
It was when former Mayweather arrived at his gym saying “Canada your up,” Crowley received an experience like no other. He would use this experience well, blasting out veteran Michi Munoz in two rounds last July. He followed with another knockout victory Juan de Jesus Angulo Gonzalez in November.
McLellan, a 32-year old fighter from British Columbia, hasn’t lost since 2015. However, he has fought mostly in Mexico against minimal opposition.
A defeat would probably be the end of his career at this level of boxing. A victory would most certainly open more opportunities for him.
Crowley once served as a sparring partner preparing Mayweather for fights against Manny Pacquiao and Connor McGregor.
McLellan, is a former CPBC National champion and will be fighting at the Memorial Centre for the first time.
The Canadian champion will be looking to step things up in a very talented division, but must keep winning to remain relevant.
This fight is scheduled to take place at the Memorial Centre, Peterborough, Canada on February 9.
