We caught up with Joe Gallagher at the Crolla vs. Barroso press conference in Manchester to discuss a wide range of subjects including Crolla vs. Barroso, Hosea Burton, professionals in the Olympics as well as predictions for Brook vs. Bizier, Canelo vs. Khan and Joshua vs. Martin.

Crolla and Barroso will square off at the Manchester Arena on May 7th. Tickets are available from
