Behind Kell Brook, Terry Flanagan has the longest winning run of fights than any other British boxer at present. Flanagan is a skilful southpaw with fast hands, great movement and is tricky to fight, probably part of the reason why he has been over looked recently when the big domestic match-ups have been made at super-featherweight and lightweight. Flanagan had won the English super-featherweight title in 2012 against Dougie Curran in his 14th fight. After one defence of the belt, Flanagan was offered the opportunity to step up in weight and enter the lightweight Prizefighter tournament. Flanagan jumped at the chance and went onto win it. It was a stellar field of opponents and Flanagan avoided his friend Anthony Crolla in the tournament, but had to beat Patrick Walsh, Derry Mathews and then Gary Sykes in the final to get his hands on the trophy and the £32,000 prize money. Since the Prizefighter Flanagan has had another four wins at lightweight and he and his team are pushing for a big domestic title shot, with British champion Martin Gethin in there immediate thinking. Flanagan seems to have developed his power since moving up to lightweight. He was a massive super-featherweight, but at lightweight he still looks big, he is filling out and looks solid as he enters the prime years of his fight career. Flanagan has plenty of skills and when he uses them to full effect, its hard for his opponents to get near him and through his southpaw right jab but he like a scrap does this hardened lad from the streets of Manchester and can sometimes can get involved when he doesn’t have too. Questions still remain of Flanagan and how far he can go, but he has answered all the questions asked of him so far and there is no doubt he deserves his chance of a big title fight soon and the oppoertunity to show British boxing what he is all about. With his continued hardwork and dedication to the game, 2014 could be the year when Flanagan finally breaks through. His first fight of the year comes on March 1 in Liverpool, an opponent had not yet been named at the time of writing. Flanagan and his team have recently signed a deal with BoxNation and the fight fans will now have the chance to see more of ‘Turbo’ Terry Flanagan. Terry Flanagan on Twitter: @terryflanagan5
