It’s a quality afternoon of fights out of Manchester today as Terry Flanagan defends his WBO lightweight title against Petr Petrov in the main event, while Liam Smith faces Liam Williams in the co-feature.
The broadcast kicks off on BoxNation at 12:30 PM ET. The main event, which you can watch on Twitter, starts around 5:00 PM ET.
Flanagan (32-0, 13 KO) will be making his fifth and likely toughest defense against Petrov (38-4-2, 19 KO), a seasoned veteran on a six-fight winning streak. Petrov is also 34, however, and may be making his final crack at a world title.
Smith (24-1-1, 13 KO) came in heavy, so the interim WBO title will only be on the line for Williams (16-0-1, 11 KO). The planned third feature, Zolani Tete vs. Arthur Villanueva, was recently bumped to May.
We’ll have round-by-round coverage for the main event and the Liams down in the comments.
