Anthony Crolla has always stated that he has wanted to leave the sport before he is forced to leave it. With exciting work in coaching prospect Dylan Evans and punditry with Sky Sports presenting itself throughout the year, this was the right time for Million Dollar to walk away from boxing. Prior to his final fight, Crolla had the opportunity to fight P4P great, Vasily Lomachenko back in April.
This was a massively valuable experience against a truly elite athlete and a payday that would secure a fruitful future for his family. After the Lomachenko fight, Anthony entered the Manchester Arena for the final time as he defeated the tough and durable Frank Urquiaga.
When speaking with Dom McGuinness at our panel event, Crolla looked back on a memorable night back in 2013, which was truly make or break for his career.
