Satchell And Flannigan Get Blackpool Send-Off After Signing With BoxNation
Boxing fans will get the last chance to see British and Commonwealth flyweight champion, Kevin Satchell, and Prizefighter winner, Terry Flannigan, on a VIP Promotions show on Friday November 15, after the pair were recently snapped up by Frank Warren and BoxNation TV.
The duo will form part of a top-draw card at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, along with Amir Khan’s brother Haroon and local man Jack Arnfield taking on Max Maxwell. While the whole show will be streamed live and free on VIPBOXING.TV, with VIP hoping to beat their previous best of over 15,000 viewers.
Unbeaten in 11 outings, Liverpool’s Satchell has proved sensational after stopping local rival Paul Edwards for the Commonwealth crown, and then finishing former champ Chris Edwards for the British title last year. The 25-year-old has since defended both belts and will be looking to conquer Europe next.
Former English super-featherweight king Flannigan, meanwhile, is looking strong at 21-0. The Mancunian has Prizefighter wins over former British champions Derry Matthews and Gary Sykes on his ledger, and in April this year ‘Turbo’ beat former world lightweight champion Nate Campbell inside the distance.
“Kevin and Terry are two of the best young boxers in Britain,” stated VIP head, Steve Wood. “They are both exciting to watch and when you look at the names that they have on their records it just shows their quality.
“They’ve both been overlooked by SKY TV in the past, but I’m delighted that Frank Warren has signed them up to BoxNation TV which is a dedicated boxing channel and will give them the exposure they deserve.
“We’re on a high at VIP Promotions, we’re producing champions all the time, and it’s fantastic to see Kevin and Terry get the rewards for their hard work and commitment. I believe both these lads can be world champions and can’t wait to get working with BoxNation on the path to ensuring they get their chances.
“The Winter Gardens is one of the UK’s best boxing venues and this show is top quality. It’s a going to be an exciting evening and some tickets are still available. If you can’t get along then go to VIPBOXING.TV and watch live and free on the night.”
