Hatton calls for meeting with Warren to discuss Crolla-Burns showdown

Promoter Ricky Hatton says he is willing to sit down with rival promoter Frank Warren to try and make a Battle of Britain between Ricky Burns and Anthony Crolla. The former two-weight world champion promotes fast rising British 135lb title holder Crolla, and believes he’ll become a world force next year. Hatton wants the Mancunian to face Warren’s WBO interim champion Burns next. “The main forces in the domestic lightweight scene are Ricky Burns and Anthony,” Hatton said. “Promoters should try and work together in order to give the British boxing fans the fights I’m sure they would love to see. Although I and Frank have had our differences in the past, the respect I have for him has neither been in question. I would sit down with Frank in order for British fans to see the best fights.”

Burns was ringside to watch Crolla retain his title with a points thrashing of Willie Limond two weeks ago, and the England vs Scotland showdown between the pair has been mooted since then.
