AFTER picking up a good win over Ricky Burns in Manchester in October, Anthony Crolla will box next in spring 2018 as he plots his route back to a world championship at lightweight.

“If Matchroom did a show in New York in March, I think Anthony would like to box on that, on the undercard while a title opportunity became available,” his trainer Joe Gallagher told Boxing News.

He suggests a rematch with Ricky Burns is not hugely appealing. But Crolla told Gallagher: “If they’re going to throw a load of money at me to do it, you can’t turn that down.”
