BOLTON'S two Jacks are determined to end 2018 with a title.

Jack Flatley made it 10 fights unbeaten in his latest bout in October, three days after fellow middleweight Jack Cullen took his 100 per cent winning tally to eight in his last outing of 2017.

Both produced the latest in a string of impressive performances to further establish themselves as two of the potential rising stars of British boxing.

Farnworth's Flatley made short work of Marian Cazacu on a Frank Warren show in London, overcoming the Lithuanian in two rounds, while Little Lever's Cullen stretched his perfect record to eight fights with a knockout show against another Lithuanian, Deividas Sajauka.

Flatley, who turned pro in 2015, is planning to fight either next month or March, with his camp hoping it will be on an undercard of a World Championship fight.

And the 23-year-old is keeping his options open about which weight he will fight in, with the middleweight and light middleweight both possibilities.

“It just depends what opportunities come up,” he says.

“I can do either middleweight or light middleweight, whatever comes first.

“I want the English title by the end of the year at either weight.

“As soon as I start getting opportunities to fight for titles, I will be taking them with both hands.”

He was particularly pleased to have put his opponent on the canvas in his last fight at the Hilton hotel in London – his first outside the North West.

And he hopes doing it in front of one particular influential figure in the audience will help his career.

“It went well, I fought hard and put on a good show, he said of the fight he won by technical knockout.

"He has only been down three or four times in 43 fights so it felt good to get him down nice and early.”

“I loved it, the atmosphere was great.

"Frank Warren was watching too so, hopefully, I can get further up the ladder.”

Cullen is also fixed on getting his hands on a title as early as possible.

“I’d like to fight for the Central Area title, " said the 6ft 3in man who is a year older than Flatley but turned professional a year later.

"It’s what I want so I’m going to do it.”

He has stormed through his early bouts with a combination of technique and power which has been too hot for any of his opponents to handle.

He took more heart from putting Sajauka on the canvas in the fourth round last time out, earning the second knockout of his professional career at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.

"He was a tough lad and could box," he said.

"He’s boxed good people and done all six rounds with former champions like Jimmy Kelly.

"For me to get him out nice and early was really good."

The man nicknamed Little Lever's Meat Cleaver believes he and Flatley are on a collision course to meet for a second time at some stage.

Cullen, who won when they fought as amateurs, said: “We’re definitely going to meet at some point, it’s just a matter of time really.

"Both of us keep winning and keeping our records up. It will be good for Bolton.”
