YOU can rely on Anthony Crolla for two things.
One: good manners. You’ll come away from being in his company sure you’ve just met the nicest guy in boxing. It’s something everybody says.
Two: he has absolutely no issue fighting fellow British boxers. Working back, Crolla has shared a ring with Ricky Burns, John Murray, Stephen Foster, Gavin Rees, Derry Mathews, Kieran Farrell, Willie Limond, John Watson, Andy Morris, Michael Brodie and Gary Sykes.
