Joshua: Crolla Has My Support

share on:

Anthony Joshua is backing Anthony Crolla to beat Jorge Linares and reclaim his title in the rematch on Saturday.

Linares emerged victorious in their first encounter, winning the WBA lightweight belt on points at the Manchester Arena.

And Crolla who is hoping to bounce back better has vowed to come out on top at the site of his loss to the Venezuelan boxer.

IBF world champion Joshua enjoyed the first fight and thinks Crolla can emerge victorious this time around.

“First fight, phenomenal,” Joshua told Sky Sports. “Jorge Linares, phenomenal fighter. ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla, phenomenal fighter.

“I like them but I am going with the hometown fighter. Crolla, you are doing it for all of us and I wish you the best of luck.”

“Everyone on the undercard too, I hope you shine through,” he added.

“Lawrence Okolie (who makes his pro debut), I am watching you bring that sauce!

“Have a good fight, enjoy it and I hope you get a victory.”
