Crolla: The Fans Will Energize Me

Anthony Crolla made weight for his fight against Jorge Linares and the Mancunian has vowed to feed off his supporters to get the win.

Crolla is facing Linares in a rematch of their first fight, which ended in a points win for Linares at the Manchester Arena.

Both boxers weighed in at 9st 8lbs 4Oz, which is under the lightweight limit at the weigh-in for their WBA lightweight title fight rematch on Saturday.

The British boxer is out to avenge his defeat to Linares last September and is hoping to feed off the support of his home fans.

“I’m going to feed off this energy, feed off the crowd tomorrow night,” Crolla told Sky Sports News HQ. “If I let it get to me emotions and start playing on that against a sharp counter puncher like Linares, it’s a dangerous thing to do.

“I’m going to feed off that in the right way and use it to spur me on, to get me over the line, to make sure the titles stay here in Manchester.”
