Crolla-Perez Rematch is Being Targeted For November

Manchester’s Anthony Crolla could return to action in November as his promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, wants to swiftly arrange a rematch with Darleys Perez, who clung onto his WBA lightweight title after holding the Mancunian to a draw on Saturday night.

Liverpudlian Derry Mathews is the mandatory challenger for Perez, but Crolla could be granted a return bout before the Colombian has to fulfil that obligation.   

“I think realistically we've got a good chance of them ordering a rematch," said Hearn. "I think everybody felt that Crolla had won. I haven’t found one person who scored it a draw or gave it to Perez.

"They haven’t called the mandatory on yet. Perez has just become champion. Of course from Mathews’ side they are going to be pushing for that as hard as they can.

“There is much more money for Perez in a rematch. I have spoken to Gary Shaw his promoter already and they are certainly up for considering a rematch." 

Revealing a potential date, Hearn added: “November, back in Manchester. They have both done 12 rounds, it was quite a tough fight. They will need three or four weeks then get back into camp, middle or end of August.”
