From hospital bed to world champion
- From the section Get Inspired
Anthony Crolla tells us his story of how he began boxing aged 10 because he "fancied trying something different".
It has not been a simple journey for the WBA lightweight champion, who suffered a fractured skull and a broken ankle when he confronted burglars near his home.
The 'Million Dollar Crolla' continued his fairytale recovery with his first title defence in Manchester.
