ROBERT McCRACKEN, the British light-middleweight champion, scored a trouble-free 21st straight victory at London's York Hall last night. There was no hint of the crowd violence which marred his previous fight at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre a month ago as McCracken stopped Bristol's Dean Cooper in the fourth round of a non-title bout.
