Jordan Flynn believes that training alongside Conor Benn and Joe Cordina has made him better than ever – as he prepares to return to the ring on this Friday’s action-packed #MTKFightNight.
Undefeated Flynn (3-0) takes on Marian Marius Istrate as part of the stacked card headlined by Danny Dignum’s WBO European middleweight title defence at York Hall in London this week, which will be broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV.
Flynn was last in action in October, earning a dominant points win over Lee Connelly, and he has relished the time spent in camp with elite fighters such as Benn and Cordina.
Flynn said:“The plan is to get in as many fights as I can this year. Hopefully I can four, five or even six. I stay in the gym 24/7 and I’m working every day, so I’m always ready to fight.
“I was meant to fight a week before Christmas and had a full camp with Conor Benn and Joe Cordina, but then the guy didn’t even turn up on the day of the weigh-in. I’m now fighting on Friday and it’s good to get out and keep things moving.
“I’ve been getting better and better in the gym, so people haven’t seen what I’m about yet. I need to keep getting these fights to show what I can do. I know the level I can get to, so I need to get on the big platform to show my skills.
“Kevin Mitchell trains me and he’s like a second dad to me. I’ve moved up near the gym and I’m fully focused on boxing as that’s what it’s all about. I’m constantly sparring top fighters, and there’s no reason why I can’t be on that level soon as well.
“Even without the backing of a big promoter, I’ve still got a big fan base, so all I need is the fights. I’ll keep working hard and getting better and better.”
Elsewhere on Friday’s card, undefeated sensation Lee McGregor returns against Diego Alberto Ruiz, Nina Hughes takes on Bec Connolly, Bilal Fawaz makes his professional debut against Vladimir Fleischhauer, Joe Giles meets Lewis van Poetsch, plus Paul Ryan and George Mitchell are both in action.
