Flanagan said: "It's always good to fight in Liverpool and I've had some good nights there. I won Prizefighter in the Olympia, so hopefully it will be another explosive performance and I'll be back at my best.

"I've watched a bit of my opponent and he looks like a tough operator. He'll come for a fight and it seems he likes to take a few to give his own so it should be a great bout.

"I'm not overlooking this fight and I always put pressure on myself. Anything can happen as it's boxing. so I've got to be in there switched on and do a job.

"It's going to be good to show people what I'm about. My weight is good and we're on track for where we need to be. We'll get this one won and then I'll be right back in the gym looking to get out again as soon as possible.

"When I get these few fights under my belt that's when you'll see the best of me. I showed that in the Diego Magdaleno fight. I was straight into that after the Jose Zepeda fight and that was one of my best performances, so if I'm active I'll get better and better."

A huge bill on Friday also features a key showdown between Jazza Dickens and Nathaniel May for the IBF European featherweight title, four-time world title challenger Martin Murray back in action against Rui Manuel Pavanito, plus the likes of Natasha Jonas, Sam Maxwell, Ged Carroll, John Quigley, and Craig Glover make up a massive undercard.
