Anthony Crolla gets November rematch with Darleys Perez
Last updated on .From the section Boxing
Anthony Crolla will face Darleys Perez in a rematch for the WBA lightweight title on 21 November in Manchester.
It follows their controversial clash in July, when Colombian Perez retained his title with a draw despite being docked points for low blows.
The Briton, 28, was then granted an immediate rematch by the WBA.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: "I haven't found anyone yet who didn't feel he won the first fight, but that's in the past now and he has to make this count."
Mancunian Crolla had produced a superb display against his 31-year-old opponent at Manchester Arena last month.
However, while one of the judges had scored the bout 116-111 in his favour, the other two called it even, ensuring Perez retained his title with a majority draw.
Now the pair will meet for a second time at the same venue.
"I'm so pleased for Anthony that he gets another bite of the cherry," said Hearn.
"I feel like he is destined to win a world title and on a huge night for Manchester and British boxing, I truly believe his dreams will come true."
