Former world champions Anthony Crolla and Ricky Burns will lock horns in an important matchup for the Lightweight division at the Manchester Arena on Saturday 7th October, live on Sky Sports. Both fighters are coming off disappointing losses in their last bouts. Crolla failed in his bid to regain the WBA Lightweight title against Jorge Linares at the Manchester Arena in March. Burns lost his WBA Light Welterweight title to the undefeated Julius Indongo via unanimous decision in April.
More details will be available at the launch press conference in Manchester on Tuesday.
