Crolla Sees Many Domestic Showdowns With Title Win

Anthony Crolla is confident he will produce an improved performance when he meets Darleys Perez for a second time, live on Sky Sports next month.

Crolla and Perez will fight for the WBA lightweight title at the Manchester Arena on November 21, just over four months after their first bout ended in a controversial majority draw which saw the Colombian retain his belt.

Crolla put in a tremendous performance and thought he had done enough to win the world title but the judges were split, with one going for each of the fighters and the third making it a draw.

And the 28-year-old is confident he will perform much better in the rematch as he bids to make his mark on a weight division packed with talent.

"The lightweight division is a fantastic division and I'm lucky to be a part of it - I want to be the second world champion," he told Sky Sports News HQ.

"The division is absolutely stacked. Kevin Mitchell, Luke Campbell, Terry Flanagan - there are so many 50-50 matches to be made.

"People talk about going to America but there are so many massive fights that could be made here among British fighters.

"We're familiar with each other's styles but the second fight is rarely the same as the first and I'm expecting a better Darleys Perez in our second fight.

"But I'm also expecting a better version of myself as well."
