Promoter Frank Warren secured Terry Flanagan his dream of a world title shot on home soil when he faces Jose Zepeda for the vacant WBO lightweight title on July 11 in Manchester.
With Flanagan’s world title fight sealed, the showdown with Zepeda has to be staged within a certain time frame and with a fight of this magnitude it requires a large venue to host it.
This has meant that the Queensberry Promotions show on Saturday 20th June at the Liverpool Olympia – featuring Paul Butler, Jack Catterall plus top talents Tom Stalker, Adrian Gonzalez, Steven Lewis, Joe Costello, McCaulay McGowan and Andrew Cain – will now form the undercard on the Velodrome show.*
An announcement for ticket on-sale date will be made shortly.
The Channel Of Champions, BoxNation, will televise the show live and exclusive on Sky 437/HD 490, Virgin 546 and Talk Talk 525. Subscribe at BoxNation Or watch online at Livesport.tv and via iPhone, iPad or Android.
Flanagan headlines the blockbuster show ‘Turbo’ that also features British stars Billy Joe Saunders and Liam Walsh in championship title bouts on one big night of action, live and exclusive on BoxNation.
