EDDIE HEARN has responded to the statement rival promoter Frank Warren released last week with regards to a potential fight between lightweight world champions Terry Flanagan and Anthony Crolla.

Warren, who promotes WBO boss Flanagan, claimed a meeting between the two Mancunians could be aired on Sky Sports Box Office, as long as it was made on a 50:50 basis.

Hearn, who handles WBA titlist Crolla, does not feel the fight warrants such a split, and also revealed there are no available pay-per-view dates this year.
