Photos: Maurice Hooker Hits Manchester, Goes Right To Work

Dallas, TX native Maurice Hooker arrived Friday morning in Manchester and headed straight to Arnie's Gym to shake off the travel rust in preparation for his June 9th world title clash for the vacant WBO junior welterweight strap. Flanagan-Hooker will serve as the chief supporting bout underneath the Tyson Fury-Sefer Seferi main event that will take place at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, UK.

The exciting match-up lands on the same card that features the return of former Heavyweight World Champion Tyson Fury.
 
Flanagan is stepping up to 140 pounds after vacating his WBO Lightweight World Title, and is confident of becoming a two-weight World Champion.

He currently holds the longest undefeated record in British boxing (33-0, 13KO’s) and will be aiming to unify the Super-Lightweight division once he triumphs at his ‘home’ Arena on June 9th.
 
American challenger Hooker has been training with pound-for-pound star Terrance Crawford in preparation for his showdown with Flangan and has had plenty to say about the Ancoats star since their match-up was first announced earlier this year.
 
Hooker, whose record reads 23-0-3 (16 KOs) has claimed that ‘Turbo’ is a dirty fighter and has torn into the Mancunians tactics.

Terry Flanagan is just dead quiet. Just shells up in front of a camera. Personalities sell here. I’m sure he’s a good lad. If I was him I would be really bitter the Crolla fight didn’t happen at lightweight

[QUOTE=GlassJoey;18824996]Is he really that dirty? I can’t tell if his lack of unifications is Frank protecting him and clinging onto the belt or if the other fighters were avoiding him... He’s relatively unknown in the U.K. despite having the best…
