Good news for the filthy Yanks among us.
In addition to being a seething mass of faceless rage perpetually shrieking racial slurs, Twitter will also serve as a boxing network this Saturday, hosting the WBO lightweight title fight between reigning champion “Turbo” Terry Flanagan and challenger Petr Petrov for American viewers.
The rest of the card, which includes the Clash of the Liams and some hotly anticipated debuts, will be on BT Sport. We here at BLH should have live coverage, so those of you without the network don’t need to worry your pretty little heads.
Flanagan (32-0, 13 KO) won the title in 2015 with an injury stoppage of Jose Zepeda and has defended it four times against middling opposition. Petrov (38-4-2, 19 KO) figures to be a stiff test, riding a six-fight winning streak. His only prior losses came to Marcos Maidana and Dejan Zlaticanin.
Be sure to tune in; I’m sure it’ll be Turbo-tastic.
