Flanagan vs Cruz Results – WBO World lightweight champion Terry Flanagan (31-0) faced Puerto Rico’s Orlando Cruz (25-4-1) in the fourth defense of the belt he has held since July of 2015.
Cruz was making a bid to be the first openly gay boxing world champion, and he came to fight. The former featherweight looked physically small in the physical match-up and Flanagan would quickly establish himself in the fight. By round eight Flanagan was smelling blood and looked to finish the fight, which he successfully did.
Frank Warren and his Queensbury Promotions promoted the card that featured ten fights in all. Check out this latest TBC report for highlights and more details.
