British lightweight Anthony Crolla is moving freely in the gym after suffering a broken ankle and a fractured skull in a December attack by burglars.

The 28 year-old was attempting to help out a neighbour who had been the target of thieves but ended up in hospital with serious injuries for his trouble.

Crolla subsequently missed out on a world title challenge against WBA champion Richar Abril in January and is now on the road to recovery, according to trainer Joe Gallagher.

A 17 year-old youth was questioned by police but released without charge.
