Based in Mexborough, Yorkshire, and a miner by trade, Harry Crossley began his boxing career with two bouts in his hometown in 1924. A run of wins up to 1928 saw him fighting tougher opposition and he travelled to Berlin in April 1928 to fight Ludwig Haymann, losing a points decision. After two fights back in England he returned to Germany for a series of fights in the second half of 1928, including a drawn match with the experienced Rudi Wagener.He fought for his first title, the Northern Area light heavyweight title, in June 1929, losing to Len Johnson on points. When Johnson vacated the title, Crossley got another shot later in June against Young Fowler; This time Crossley took a points decision to win the title. He followed this with a win over Gipsy Daniels, and then fought heavyweight Larry Gains in Cologne, losing on points. At the time he was the only British fighter to take Gains the distance.
