BOLTON rising middleweight star Jack Flatley will soon show the fans his true quality, says his trainer.

Alex Matvienko has worked with the Farnworth fighter since he turned pro almost two and a half years ago and has no doubt he has a big future.

The Bolton coach says people within the sport have a high opinion of 23-year-old Flatley and that is only a matter of time before fight fans feel the same.

Flatley, who a perfect professional record of 10 wins from 10 professional fights, has been back in training for six weeks while he waits for confirmation of his next bout.

And Matvienko, who trains him at Elite gym in Halliwell, believes his fighter will continue to win and impress people.

“Jack’s shown it as an amateur,” said Matvienko, referencing wins against Commonwealth gold medallist Scott Fitzgerald and top British heavyweight Hughie Fury, the cousin of former world heavyweight champion Tyson.

“He beat a lot of people as an amateur fighter so you know he’s more than proved himself to many people in boxing, all the people behind the scenes.

“Now just needs to show it to the fans.”

Matvienko believes it is just a matter of making sure the chances come Flatley’s way, and the rest will take care of itself.

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