Terry Flanagan

Post by rio »

Anyone know what happened to him? Won 3 on the bounce after losing a decision to Prograis then never heard from again. Good lightweight.... Defended WBO belt 5 times and it was a travesty the Crolla fight never happened....same town, same school, both world champions. I always got the feeling it was Crolla side (Gallagher, Hearn) who didn't want that fight as they knew Turbo would be a very tough night.

It's a crime that he didn't fight Crolla.

Cheers. Presumed he's retired then. Hope he made enough in his world title reign to live comfortable. Always liked to see fighters with no top AM experience, no big promoter come through the small hall scene and win a world title. Can't think of any other than Terry, Warrington and Fielding (if you count his title as real)
