Crolla Admits That A lot is Riding on John Murray Clash

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

ANTHONY CROLLA has promised to restore pride to the red half of Manchester this weekend.

The United fan goes up against Manchester lightweight rival and City supporter John Murray.

The pair are good friends and old gym mates but Crolla has had to endure plenty of stick for United's slump this season while Murray has had all the bragging rights.

Crolla, 27, has vowed to be the one who is left smiling on Saturday night at Manchester's Phones4U Arena.

He said: "It's a great chance to restore a bit of pride for the Reds.

"I was at the derby a few weeks back and it was a tough pill to swallow with City beating us again.

"He has something to be smug about at the moment but he won't after the fight. It's a chance to get him back."

Crolla has suffered four defeats and a draw in a stop-start 32-fight career career but he is determined to reignite his world-title hopes against Murray.

He added: "This is my chance to kick on now. I've a lot riding on this.

"My career has not been straight forward. It's been a rollercoaster but I'm a better fighter through that."
