TERRY FLANAGAN closed in on a money-spinning unification showdown after beating Petr Petrov on points to successfully defend his WBO lightweight title for the fifth time at the Manchester Arena.

After claiming a 116-112, 120-108, 118-110 victory on the judges’ cards, Flanagan will now hope to land a high-profile clash with either Ukrainian star Vasyl Lomachenko or Anthony Crolla’s recent conqueror, Jorge Linares.
