WBO world lightweight champion Terry Flanagan is calling for a mouthwatering unification fight with WBA titlist Anthony Crolla to happen next.

Crolla defended his title in emphatic style at the weekend, knocking out unbeaten favourite Ismael Barroso in the seventh round of their enveloping contest at the Manchester Arena.

Crolla and Flanagan are from the same area of Manchester and even went to the same school – St Matthew’s in Moston – and Terry insists they must meet each other next.
