Retired middleweight boxer Darren Barker has claimed that he feels "gutted" for Anthony Crolla after the British lightweight was attacked by burglars.

The 28-year-old suffered a fractured skull when one of two burglars hit the boxer on the head with a "brick or concrete slab" after he confronted them.

On Twitter, Barker wrote: "Gutted to hear what happened to @ant_crolla speedy recovery pal and I hope those dirty bastards get found and taught a lesson!"

Promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that Crolla, who also suffered a broken ankle, is in a "stable condition" in Oldham hospital.
