Manchester’s Anthony Crolla (29-4-3, 11 KOs) weighed in at 134lbs (9st 8lbs) a pound inside the lightweight limit for Saturday’s WBA world title rematch against defending champion Darleys Perez (32-1-1, 20 KOs).

The WBA ordered this return after the last contest in July ended in a controversial majority draw at the Manchester Arena the same arena in Crolla’s home city where Saturday’s fight also takes place.
