Crolla Goes Back To School

World champion boxer Anthony ‘Million Dolla’ Crolla took a break during fight-week to surprise students at a north Manchester school.

The WBA lightweight king – who still lives just a few minutes drive from the MCMA academy in Blackley – found time ahead of his unification bout with Jorge Linares to inspire and motivate the pupils and staff. Anthony took part in a question and answer session with year seven, before giving a coaching masterclass to some of the school’s keen amateur boxers.

The Sport Community organised the event in partnership with the Manchester United Foundation, which delivers coaching and life skills at the school.
