Anthony Crolla knocked out Darleys Perez to become WBA world lightweight champion in Manchester.

Crolla was denied a world belt in July when his first clash with Perez was declared a draw – the decision robbing the Manchester fighter an emotional win in the wake of him sustaining serious injuries while trying to detain a burglar earlier in the year.

However, it was a different story at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night, as a bodyshot proved the Colombian’s undoing with 30 seconds of the fifth round remaining.
