One of boxing’s true nice guys and former world champion Anthony Crolla of Manchester has landed himself a huge opportunity to take on one of the very best fighters in the world today.

Pound for pound.

Dan Rafael confirmed this week that Crolla will challenge pound for pound supremo Vasyl Lomachenko next up:

Excellent news and certainly a superb, well deserved opportunity for ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla.

Obviously he’s going to be very up against it here.

Even he would surely admit that, but make no mistake, he’ll be going in with everything he has to win.

That said, fight fans are all saying the same thing about the fight for the most part in terms of it being competitive:

No doubt Anthony Crolla will look to prove all the above wrong come fight night.
