Terry Flanagan-Scott Cardle Ordered by The BBBoC

By Terence Dooley

Manchester's Terry "Turbo" Flanagan has been ordered to defend his British lightweight title against Lancashire rival Scott "Scotty" Cardle by March of next year.  The mandatory defence was ordered yesterday by the BBBoC, with purse bids due in by noon of December 10th.

Flanagan, 25-0 (9), has to get past Stephen Ormond first; he will challenge for the Dubliner's WBO European title on December 13th and faces a tough test against the 17-1 (8) champion.  Ormond has notched up wins over Karim El Ouazghari (TKO 5), Derry Mathews (W 10) and Adam Dingsdale in recent fights (W 10).  Cracking "The Rock" is no easy feat, so Flanagan will have to focus on that fight before turning his mind to Cardle.

Lytham's Cardle has raced to 16-0 (4) since turning over in March 2012.  The 25-year-old earned his shot by beating Kirk Goodings by first-round TKO in September, picking up the English title and securing his shot at the Lonsdale belt in the process.

Should Flanagan get past Ormond, the 25-year-old will head straight into an all-British showdown against Cardle with a head of steam behind him.  Cardle, though, has the confidence born of an unbeaten record and he will be equally bullish going into the proposed fight.

Flannigan/Ormand looks interesting. However the WBO Euro title is worthless! He should be in with the like of Commey & Marsili right now!
