JACK FLATLEY is back on track after starting 2022 with a hard fought points win over Spaniard Kelvin Dotel.
The win came three months after Flatley had travelled to Bilbao and challenged Dotel’s countryman Kerman Lejarraga for the European Super-Welterweight title.
He gave an excellent account of himself, but Lejarraga’s impressive power eventually told and Jack lost in the ninth round.


The Alex Matvienko trained boxer did win the English 154lb belt in May 2019 when he outpointed Craig Morris.


Four months later Jack was dethroned losing on points against 7-0 Harry Scarff in what was considered an upset at the time.
But perhaps the fight fans will never forget is a brutal eight round draw with old amateur rival Troy Williamson in June 2018, a contest that was one Britain’s best that year.


Williamson is now British champion, but a rematch later in the year is a possibility if Flatley can maintain his winning form.
Flatley who had his first professional fight in October 2015 had a fine unpaid career and beat Hughie Fury in three of their four amateur meetings.
Jack also caused a string of upsets in the 2015 ABA Championships before losing on points against Williamson in the final.


Among his victims in an unexpected final charge that earned him the monicker ‘Jack the Giant Killer’ was Scott Fitzgerald who he defeated in the North-West final.
Despite boxing being such a huge part of his life, Flatley also studied Sociology at University of Manchester where he got a Bsc.
