Anthony Crolla granted immediate rematch against Darleys Pérez by WBA

Anthony Crolla has been granted an immediate rematch of his world lightweight title fight against Darleys Pérez.

The British fighter was frustrated by the judges in Manchester earlier this month when the bout was ruled a draw. However, the promoter Eddie Hearn appealed against the decision and the WBA has now ordered the two to meet again.

Hearn tweeted: “I cannot tell you how happy I am to announce that the @WBABoxing have ordered the rematch between @ant_crolla and Darleys Perez!”.

Crolla appeared to have clinched a belt of his own in a close fight at the Manchester Arena as the defending champion Pérez of Colombia was twice docked points for frequent low blows. But the judges were split, with one ruling for each fighter and the third calling it a draw.

However, Thursday’s news has delighted Crolla. The 28-year-old tweeted: “So grateful to have this opportunity given to me with the immediate rematch to fight Darleys Perez for @WBABoxing world title. Last time was … A special night and I believe with the support of the people of Manchester and Britain it will be even more special”.
