JACK Flatley is sure there will be a "Battle of Bolton" fight with Jack Cullen – but not yet.

Farnworth ace Flatley will be looking to take his unbeaten professional record into double figures a week on Monday.

The middleweight is not sure who his opponent will be in London after Welshman Alex Hughes pulled out, but he is sure he will go toe to toe with Little Lever rival Cullen one day.

He just doesn't know when and in the meantime he is concentrating on his next fight.

“To focus on one person at an early stage in my career would be a bit daft,” he told The Bolton News.

“It’s definitely going to happen [a fight with Cullen], I just don’t know when. I just want to concentrate on my next fight and myself."

The two Bolton fighters met as amateurs in a fight won by Cullen, who turns 24 next week.

But the professional game is a different world and both have progressed a lot in terms of skills and experience since then.

Flatley, who turned 23 last month and has been a professional for just over two years, is looking to show his promoter Frank Warren what he can do at the London show.

He said: "I want to impress Frank Warren, show him what I’m about and hopefully move on to some big event and fights next year.

"I’ve been training twice a day, six days a week, and on Sundays I coach boxing.”

“Because my opponent pulled out a few days ago we’ve not got another one yet, but I’m trying my best to get another undefeated opponent that’ll put me in the running to fight for the English title next year."

Cullen turned professional a year after Flatley and will be looking to extend his own unbeaten record to eight fights in Manchester a week on Friday.
