JORGE LINARES returns to Manchester this weekend to defend the WBA lightweight title he won from Anthony Crolla last year in a rematch with the hometown hero.

The pair engaged in an enthralling battle in September but it was Linares who prevailed on the cards. After he recovered from a recurring hand injury, a rematch was signed and the excellent Venezuelan will once again travel to defend his crown.
