BEN Thomas' manager insists his professional record thus far does not reflect how he is developing as a fighter. 

The Breightmet light-heavyweight has a win, a loss and a draw on his record after three fights.

The 27-year-old was stopped on his debut by Ben Douglas before rebounding with a knockout win of his own against Darren Snow.

Last time out in March came a frustrating draw against Harry Matthews at the Bolton Whites Hotel. 

Thomas is back in action this Sunday afternoon at the Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre in Wythenshawe where he will look to get back to winning ways against the durable and dangerous Daryl Sharp.

"I felt like he won his last fight," said Thomas' manager Kieran Farrell. 

"I was telling him to keep doing what he was doing in the corner because I thought he was winning every round. 

"But we ended up with a draw and it is what it is. 

"When he lost his debut that was unfortunate as well, he was winning the fight and then with 10 seconds to go dropped his hands and got caught. 

"We've got to build him up. His record doesn't look good on paper but he's a better fighter than that. 

"He could be 3-0. Now we've got to get him towards 10-1-1 and see what he's all about."

Farrell looks after both Thomas and Sharp meaning it is an interesting match-up for the Heywood-based trainer, manager and promoter. 

"They've sparred so many rounds together I kind of know what to expect," he said. 

"Daryl is a hard, tough man who will fight anyone. 

"But Ben is the better boxer and should have enough to beat him on points. 

"I don't think he'll go in there to knock him out because that will leave him open. 

"He's got to use his longer arms and his ability to get him through." 

The Wythenshawe show has been put together by Farrell and Joe Gallagher, who trains his fighters at Amir Khan's gym in Bolton.
