  • Comments Thread For: Flanagan: Time To Look at Big Fights and Big Money

    Manchester hero Terry Flanagan became WBO World Lightweight Champion after American star Jose Zepedaís suffered a shock dislocated shoulder in the second round tonight at the Manchester Velodrome.

    Flanagan is now the first ever English boxer in history to win a world title in the lightweight division and Manchesterís first world champion since Ricky Hatton.

    Californian Zepeda came into the ring with an awesome reputation as a devastating puncher with 20 of 23 wins coming by knockout. In the opening round both undefeated southpaws were starting to trade shots and it was looking to be heating up into a cracking battle.

    It's pretty pathetic that Flanagan is looking forward to easy title defenses against local Uber drivers, . The fight should be ruled a No Contest, and Flanagan should be ordered to fight the next highest rated contender in the W.B.O. rankings so he could earn the world title.

        its total bullcrap why doesnt the wbo supervisor rule a draw, i know the promoters paying the ref so he's going to appease his master but realy, he's no champion he's beat nobody just like quigg. There must be a reason why warren always go's the wbo or wba routes rather than wbc, maybe he can get more influence etc.

          What "big" fights are there for Flanagan?

          Got the sense from yesterday that he's not very popular in Britian

            he can be matched with popular british lightweights like mitchell, crolla, burns, mathews or campbell. we're kind of having a lightweight golden age in the uk right now

            but imo the zepeda fight should be ruled a no contest and he should have to face magdelano or petrov for the vacant title, if zepeda's injury proves too bad for an immediate rematch. last night's fight didn't prove a thing

              Magdaleno is the mandatory just depends on when they enforce it so domestic fights until then.

                Well there didn't seem much between them power wise, so maybe Zepedas record was padded..
