On Saturday night, Anthony Crolla returned to Manchester in spectacular style, defeating Ricky Burns in his home town by unanimous decision.

It was a big step for the Million Dolla man after his previous defeat at the hands of Venezuelan fighter Jorge Linares.

The same evening, the highly-rated Chris Eubank Junior also pulled out a stunning victory, knocking out Avni Yildirim in the third round.

It was a very good night for British boxing and certainly one for Eddie Hearn, with the promoter particularly over the moon for Crolla.

The Manchester boy spoke after the fight and appears to have decided what his next bout will be; Luke Campbell.


"I certainly don't mind the fight with Luke," Crolla told Sky Sports.

"He did very well a few weeks back, even more so following the news that came out about him losing his father, it must have been so tough.

"But he showed he's world class. It's another 'Battle of Britain' and it's a fight that makes business sense.

"It's something that I'd be happy to go with. I'm just interested in being involved in big fights just like on Saturday night."

In victory, Crolla was his usual sporting self towards his opponent but, he did accidentally mug off his promoter.

Hearn came into the ring after the 12 rounds and tried to shake hands with both fighters.

Safe to say, his attempt with Crolla didn't go well.


Ouch, not Eddie's finest moment and he was also brilliantly ignored by Tony Bellew when he defeated David Haye in their first fight.

Hearn tried to wildly celebrate with the Scouse fighter but was expertly pied, much to the delight of viewers.

The promoter will now turn his focus to Anthony Joshua's fight with Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff, with the heavyweight champion desperate to earn yet another win and then arrange a unification fight with Deontay Wilder.
