Prizefighter results: Flanningan on to finals with win over bloody Mathews

Derry Mathews came out of his quarterfinal matchup with two bad cuts, and somehow was allowed to fight on in today's Prizefighter tournament. It proved to be a bad idea, as the cuts were quickly reopened, leaving the tough Mathews in a no-win situation, eventually outpointed by Terry Flannigan, 29-27 on all three cards.

Mathews (31-8-1, 16 KO) was the betting favorite to win the tournament, but cuts suffered against Spence really did him in, even though he swept his quarterfinal matchup. Flannigan (17-0, 4 KO) now is in a good position to score a big upset tournament win, as he awaits the Crolla-Sykes II winner in the final fight.
