Former lightweight titleholder Terry Flanagan returns in action when he fights on the huge #MTKFightNight event at the iconic Ulster Hall in Belfast on October 11th.
Flanagan (34-2, 14 KOs) will be live on the streaming service ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and also live on iFL TV around the rest of the world, fresh off the heels of his thrilling stoppage win over Jonas Segu in July.
The Manchester star is excited to be part of an enormous event in Northern Ireland and plans on rewarding the fans with a performance to remember.
‘Turbo’ Flanagan said in a press release: “I’m delighted to be back in action again. Fighting in Belfast is something I’ve always wanted to do in my career and I can’t wait to compete at the iconic Ulster Hall.
“I was pleased with the win in my last fight and now it’s about building on that momentum as I work towards getting back in the mix at world level at lightweight.

“We saw over the weekend just how exciting the lightweight division is, and I’m looking to produce another major performance on October 11 that reminds everyone just what I’m capable of.”
Flanagan, who held the WBO lightweight title from 2015 to 2017, is the first Englishmen to ever hold the title at that weight class. Flanagan carried that strap until he vacated it in 2017 when he decided to move up in weight to light-welterweight. In that weight class, Flanagan challenged Maurice Hooker but lost by split decision in June 2018.
Alongside Flanagan on a special night in Belfast is a wonderful flyweight battle between Jay Harris and Paddy Barnes, Sean McComb taking on Emiliano Dominguez, while IBF European champion Marco McCullough defends against Viorel Simion.
A very busy undercard for Belfast will include Lewis Crocker, Gary Cully, Conrad Cummings, Callum Bradley, Sean Duffy, Pierce O’Leary, and Ruari Dalton.
