Betfred has agreed on a deal to serve as title sponsor of the boxing rematch between Anthony Crolla and Jorge Linares for the WBA, WBC Diamond and Ring magazine World Lightweight titles.

The bout will take place on March 25 at Manchester Arena in England.

Betfred was also the title sponsor for the first meeting between the two at the same venue in September when Venezuelan Linares came out on top.

Betfred boss Fred Done said: “Following the fantastic first fight, I had no hesitation in sponsoring the rematch.”
