Anthony Crolla: WBA champion delighted at 'second chance'

Anthony Crolla says he is delighted for his 'second chance' at boxing success after knocking out Colombia's Darleys Perez in the fifth round to win the WBA lightweight title.

Crolla's world title win comes less than a year after he suffered a fractured skull when confronting burglars.

The Mancunian will now spend some time away from the gym before a potential fight with Kevin Mitchell at Old Trafford.
