FARNWORTH middleweight boxer Jack Flatley returns to the ring tomorrow night looking to make another statement in front of a big crowd at Manchester Arena.

The unbeaten star, nicknamed ‘The Quiet Storm’, is hoping to stretch his unblemished professional record to 12 wins against Darlington’s Troy Williamson on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s return to ring action.

The bout sees 23-year-old Flatley take on a man who beat him as an amateur at the senior ABA elite championship finals three years ago.

But while he admits revenge would be nice, he insists the main aim is to notch up another win and continue his progression through the middleweight ranks.

Flatley told The Bolton News: “It is not about revenge because the amateur days are long gone, though it would be nice.

“For me it is a good chance to further my career with another good win against an unbeaten opponent.

“It is a big venue and good exposure for me live on BT Sport and BoxNation. It is a chance to show people what I’m all about again.”

Flatley says he will be undaunted by the size of the venue, having fought twice previously at the Manchester Arena.

And he will have the backing of more than 160 friends and family from the Bolton area, as well as club-mates from the Elite Gym in Halliwell where he is trained by Alex Matvienko. He says training has gone as well as ever and he feels in good shape and in confident mood with just over 24 hours to go before the big fight night.

Flatley added: “Training camp has been brilliant and I have been sparring well.

“I am comfortable at the weight and had my last session yesterday so I am ready now.

“He’s a good fighter but I am ready for what he brings – I can adapt if I need to.

“I feel I am improving all the time with Alex and always want harder fights to keep getting better.

“I have done all I can now and am all set.

“I cannot wait to get in there. I have sold around 160 to 170 tickets so will have a lot of support there cheering me on.

“Jack McGann, who trains with me, is making his debut on the bill as well so there will be plenty of fans supporting both Elite fighters.”

n Coverage of the Fury bill begins on BT Sport tomorrow night from 7pm.
