In an emotional return to the Manchester Arena for Anthony ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla, the Mancunian hero defeated Scottish warrior Ricky Burns in a good non-title lightweight contest on Saturday night.

The officials scored the fight 116-113, 117-112, 116-114, all in favour of former WBA world lightweight champ Crolla by unanimous decision, although the scorecards didn’t reflect former three weight world champion Burns’ tremendous effort, Crolla was a deserved winner.Both Crolla, 30, and Burns, four years his elder, went into the fight off the back of world title losses. But it is Crolla who can now look forward to another possible world title fight, although a rematch in Glasgow has been touted.

There was a good undercard put together for what was an action packed night in the north.

Below are a number of photographed taken before during and after the fights, enjoy!
