Terry Flannigan Wins PrizeFighter Lightweights II By Split Decision

After a gruelling time in the ring between eight of the best Lightweight contenders this evening, it was Terry Flannigan of Manchester who lifted the Prizefighter Trophy and took hold of the £32,000 cheque. Even though Gary Sykes managed to get Flannigan on the ropes in the 3rd round it was not enough for him to win. Flannigan was awarded a split decision at the Liverpool Olympia in this final match and the man who talked less during the night produced the best; he fell down on his knees when he heard the result.

The night developed with Flannigan winning against Derry Matthews in the semi finals after he backed him onto the ropes, and clashed with his opponent receiving a cut on his eye. After the doctor examined him he was rearing to go. Matthews wanted to knock Flannigan out, however he just did not find his form, as the final round was explosive and Flannigan took the fight on points.

The second semi final was between Anthony Crolla and Gary Sykes, where both boxers put on an impressive show. Crolla had a discharge of blood from his nose in the 2nd round and the 3rd round also proved to be crucial, as Crolla received a further injury in form of a cut under his eye. In the end, Sykes finished stronger, winning that bout.

The quarter finals results were Jamie Spence being beaten by Derry Matthews on points, Terry Flannigan beating Liam Patrick Walsh, Anthony Crolla winning over Stephen Jennings and Gary Sykes dominating Tommy Coyle.
