Two weeks ago I took the long trek up to Bolton to see current WBA lightweight world champion Anthony Crolla in training for Sport. They crank up the heat in the gym, both literally and in Anthony's training ahead of his huge fight against Linares. It was a great insight and experience to track Anthony and sit down for some portraits after the session (I say 'sit-down'; I was his opponent).
Check out the current issue of Sport, out today. Along with words by Alex Reid it's a good read.
Thanks to Sport and Matchroom for the commission.
