Manchester icon Ricky Hatton is predicting a very even match when rivals Anthony Crolla (27-4-1, 10KOs) and John Murray (33-2, 20KOs) clash on April 19th at the Manchester Arena. Crolla has gone 4-0-1 since losing back to back fights in 2012, against Derry Mathews and Gary Sykes.

"I don’t want to go out on a limb just yet to predict a winner. You can make a case for both fighters. It is a genuine 50-50 fight, which is why it will generate so much interest locally. There’s always something special in these kind of domestic scraps and this has all the makings of being one of the best. It is going to split the city."
