In an 18 fight professional career, the pride of Bolton Jack Flatley has showcased his ability to dig deep and go to war on many occasions.
Fittingly nicknamed ‘the quiet storm’, battles involving the Bolton native have become must-see events for domestic fight fans, who can be assured that he will be relentless in his pursuit of getting his hand raised.
Now, on October 10th he prepares to take on JJ Metcalf for Commonwealth title live on BT Sport and speaking to BBTV, he emphasised it’s an opportunity he is cherishing.
He stated: “I want to fight the best, I want to take risks and I want to look back on my career and be able to say that I did take the chances. There’s no point in fighting 30/40 fights in your career and not taking any chances and not having the big nights to remember. At the end of the day, these are the chances I’m going to remember when I finish my career.
“I’ve shown I can dig deep and I’ve shown that I wear my heart on my sleeve in other fights I’ve shown I can switch it up as well, I’m not just a one-trick pony and I can be versatile when I need to be.”
The eagerly anticipated battle takes place on a card that is arguably one of the most exciting since boxing reemerged from lockdown, headlined by Liam Williams’ title defence against Andrew Robinson and featuring the return of Nathan Gorman and an intriguing clash between Anthony Cacace and Leon Woodstock.
