JORDAN Flynn is aiming to announce himself to the boxing world in the biggest fight of his career.

The 23-year-old takes to the ring for his first professional bout on Saturday, December 14 at the Brentwood Centre, Essex.

It represents a major test for the Cowley boxer, who stepped up from the amateur ranks earlier this year despite recently spending time away from the sport for health reasons.

But Flynn is raring to go and looking forward to parading his talents at a higher level.

He said: “I’ve got to put on a show and introduce myself to the boxing world.

“This is my first chance to show what I’m all about.

“There’s always a little bit of nerves, it’s a big build-up to this one day.

“But I’d like to use that as positive energy to help me perform.”

The three-time national champion has stepped up his preparations ahead of the fight, with his opponent yet to be announced.

In recent weeks, Flynn has trained twice a day, six days a week, including 30-minute sparring sessions – the equivalent of ten continuous rounds.

This will benefit him at the Brentwood Centre, when he will move up from three to four rounds.

The 23-year-old is easing off in the week before the bout, but he knows the tough schedule will pay off.

He said: “I’m going in hard. I’ve got to make all those sacrifices and focus on boxing.”

Alongside his packed training schedule, Flynn is racking up the miles.

The lightweight divides his time between Oxford, his training base at Anthony Joshua’s luxury gym, BXR London, and Essex, home of trainer Kevin Mitchell.

Working with the ex-British and Commonwealth champion means travelling is necessary, but Flynn believes he will reap the rewards.

He said: “I’m with him Monday to Friday, so I’ve learnt a lot.

“My style is completely different. I’ve adapted to the pro game.”

It leaves the Cowley fighter in the best possible position before the fight, where more than 200 fans from Oxford are expected to watch on.

Two years after he was tipped for a bright future by former heavyweight champion Frank Bruno, Flynn is ready to make his mark.

He said: “I’ve had compliments from different professional boxers.

“It shows that I’m capable, because they’ve been there and done it.

“To get those kind of comments shows I’m going in the right direction.”
