THREE world title fights will take place on October 10 at the Manchester Arena. WBO lightweight champion Terry Flanagan will make the first defence of his title against mandatory challenger, America’s Diego Magdaleno.

“From what I’ve seen of him he’s a good fighter and it’s going to be a good fight,” said Flanagan.

“This is a winnable fight for him. It won’t be easy but he can win this fight,” said promoter Frank Warren. “He can cement himself as one of the best lightweights in the world.”
