The Anthony Crolla vs Burns decision ultimately went the way of hometown Manchester man Crolla. Here’s the pick of the reaction.

The Crolla vs Burns decision read out as a unanimous points decision victory in the end for local man Anthony Crolla at the Manchester Arena.

But that perhaps didn’t tell the full story in what proved to be a fantastic scrap between two true warriors.

Ricky Burns gave Crolla all he could handle in spells in the contest in what proved a popular fight with those that attended and watched on TV.

As always, boxing fans are a passionate bunch and have been vocal across the board in their thoughts overall on last night’s sweet science action:

All in all, most people seem to think it was at least somewhat of a decent scrap. Those in live attendance certainly seemed to have a good time.

Whether or not we see a rematch remains to be seen.

Their styles matched up decently enough, to be fair, but Crolla may look to use this as a springboard to make another run at a world title.

Two of the sports most likeable fighters produced in the ring yet again. Showing trash talk before a fight isn’t always necessary.
