LAST year, the story around Anthony Crolla was about how he returned from serious injuries sustained while trying to prevent a burglary to win a world title.

He was hospitalised after two thugs, who were fleeing from Crolla’s neighbour’s house, which they had just ransacked, dropped a concrete slab on Anthony’s head.

It cost him a world title shot at Richar Abril and almost ended his career.
