26th November 2016 - KO win v Orlando Cruz

Terry Flanagan in profile

11th July 2015 – a night Terry Flanagan will never forget.

Jose Zepeda’s injury allowed for Flanagan to fulfill every boxers' dream and become a World Champion.

It wasn’t the way "Turbo" would have wanted to win a World title which spurred him on to go out and put an impressive display against mandatory challenger Diego Magdaleno on October 10.

Southpaw Flanagan’s record remains a perfect one with 29 victories (12 KO).

In May 2012 he captured the English title at super-featherweight in a 12 round tear up with Dougie Curran.

Flanagan’s sole defence of the title was over Troy James before moving up to lightweight.

It was straight into the thick of it, lifting the Prizefighter trophy over now stablemate Derry Mathews in the semi-final and edging Gary Sykes with a split decision in the final.

Another retirement saw Flanagan become a British Lightweight Champion when Martin Gethin retired with an ear injury in their clash on the bumper Manchester show at the end of July 2014.

First World Title defence

Turbo put in a spectacular display to demolish mandatory challenger Diego Magdaleno in the second round to retain his WBO World Lightweight Title at the Manchester Arena on Saturday 10 October.

Magdaleno was floored three times before referee Terry O'Connor stepped in to bring proceedings to a halt in the second.

Flanagan v Mathews: A Tale of Two Cities

On March 12th 2016, Flanagan retained his WBO World Lightweight Champion after a unanimous decision points victory after colliding with Liverpudlian rival Derry Mathews at Liverpool's Echo Arena.

Flanagan v Mathews

Turbo went on to pick up a landslide points victory over the experienced Mzonke Fana on the big Cardiff undercard featuring Rigondeaux v Dickens and Williams v Corcoran.

Headliner in Cardiff

On November 26th 2016, Flanagan headlined our big show at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff. He didn't disappoint the Welsh crowd, stopping Orlando Cruz in the eighth round after an excellent performance.

After the victory, the WBO Champ spoke of having big fights in 2017 against the likes or Jorge Linares and Dejan Zlaticanin, or even current Super-Featherweight ruler Vasyl Lomachenko. There are a number of huge match-ups on the horizon for Turbo...
