Terry Flanagan to make MTK Global debut in Liverpool on July 12

RINGSIDE 28/05/2019

Former world champion Terry Flanagan will make his debut as an MTK Global fighter on the #MTKFightNight in Liverpool on July 12 – live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV.

‘Turbo’ (33-2, 13 KOs), who held the WBO world lightweight crown between 2015 and 2018, signed up with MTK Global last week and immediately has his first task on a starry card that already includes Rocky Fielding, Martin Murray and Jazza Dickens vs. Nathaniel May.

Manchester’s Flanagan said: “I’m happy to be fighting on a huge card so close to home. I’m buzzing to be out again and the plan is to stay busy to get myself back in contention at lightweight. MTK Global are giving me what I wanted by keeping me active.

“A lot of times in the past I would have a fight and then not know when I was fighting again for a while so by having a set out plan I know I’ll be keeping the ball rolling and it always feels more natural and normal when I fight. That’s when I’m at my best and that journey starts on July 12 in Liverpool.

“It’s a big show on ESPN+ with some great names on the bill but I’m sure my fans will be louder than anybody and make lots of noise. I’m looking forward to getting back out there and proving a bit of a point. This will probably be the final chapter of my career under MTK Global, but I feel the best is still yet to come.

“There’s a great atmosphere in the gym at the moment and everyone is pushing everyone on, and I’m excited to remind everyone what I’m capable of when I return on this big bill in Liverpool on July 12”

News of further fights and fighters will be forthcoming in due course.
