Man City fan and WBO Lightweight Champion Terry "Turbo" Flanagan is set to defend his title against Petr Petrov in Manchester on April 8th.
The true blue Mancunian headlines a bumper night of boxing at Manchester Arena when he takes on the 33-year-old.
Petrov (38-4-2, 19 KOs), a native of Russia who fights out of Spain, previously challenged for the world title in 2011 when he was stopped by former Floyd Mayweather foe Marcos Maidana and is on a six fight winning streak heading into the contest.
“If I’m not 100 per cent against Petrov I could slip up,” said Flanagan. “If I’m not on my game he’s a potential banana skin and I won’t get those big unification fights later on in the year. First and foremost I need to get in the gym and do the hard work. Me at my best beats him at his best."
