|Anthony 'Million Dollar' Crolla|
"It doesn't cost anything to be polite to people," said Crolla. "I want to be known for my boxing, for entertaining people in the ring - not trash talking. I don't want to be known for that. I wasn't brought up like that."
Crolla also went on to say that even if he did get in a bust-up at a weigh-in or bad mouth somebodies family, his mum would give him a far worse beating than anyone in the ring would.
"My mum would kill me if she ever saw me getting in a fight at a weigh-in or something like that. If she ever saw me slap someone she'd give me a good hiding."

His next fight is tonight against Derry Matthews and his trainer Joe Gallagher believes that he is at the best he's ever been.
"For this fight I've seen even more from Anthony, some real bad intentions in his punching that wasn't there in the past."
Crolla believes that it was his decision to team up with Joe Gallagher that made him even hungrier for success. He had already suffered two losses before moving to Gallagher's gym but since then he hasn't looked back. 'Million Dollar' Crolla has quickly became one of the most popular fighters in British boxing and in a few fights time he could be challenging for a world title.
There is nothing bad I can say about this rare breed of fighter. I wish him a lot of luck in the future but he definitely doesn't need it.
