It?s a huge question!

Much will depend on pre-fight preparation, the mind-set on the night and how Crolla reacts to being put under pressure by the hard-punching Linares.

However, the word from the Crolla gym is that the WBA champion is looking the business with his stable-mate, Scott Quigg, remarking about the Manchester fighter,

‘We’re under no illusions, we know this is going to be a very tough fight for Anthony style-wise. But believe me, he’ll pull it off. He’s firing in the gym, things are starting to come together.

‘You know it’s a big fight when it’s for the unified Ring Magazine belt, you don’t get any easy fights for that. I have a prediction in my head. Anthony doesn’t win on points, but Anthony will stop him.’

A bold prediction from the Bury fighter, let?s hope he?s right.
