JORDAN Flynn was moments away from a second consecutive TKO as he beat Jahfieus Fahre at York Hall.

The Cowley boxer had to settle for a points victory at the iconic venue as he extended his professional record to 6-0.

Flynn was pleased with his display in the capital, but admitted he was slightly frustrated he could not follow his TKO against Constantin Radoi in April with a repeat showing.

“I’m happy with the performance, I was just annoyed I didn’t get the stoppage,” the 26-year-old said.

“I only saw him (Fahre) for the first time when I got in the ring.

“I could tell straight away he was in really good shape, so I knew he took it seriously.

“I was expecting him to be a southpaw, so when I saw him standing orthodox I thought he was trying to trick me.

“I got stronger as the rounds went on, I’ve got that in the tank.

“I was taking my time. I felt like I won every round but in round six I stepped things up.

“The ref said if the fight had gone on ten more seconds he would have stopped it.”

It shows the high standards the lightweight has set after a flawless start to his pro career.

Flynn’s first three fights were staggered over nearly two years due to the disruption caused by Covid, but this bout was already his third of 2022.

It has enabled the rising star to gain momentum and he showed his staying power again, even with trainer Kevin Mitchell unable to attend.

There was also the welcome distraction of BBC show Sunday Morning Live covering his fight, with the programme following him from weigh-in to the final bell.

By the time the feature goes on air Flynn will most likely be back at work after a short break.

He continues to train ferociously in the gym in Essex and is looking to move from six rounds to eight when he next steps in the ring.

He said: “Definitely before the end of the year, if not the next fight then the fight after.

“When you’re training this hard you want a fight that goes on a bit longer.”

Flynn hopes to fight again in September.

Meanwhile, Ciaran Flanagan was unable to make it a perfect weekend for Oxford boxers at York Hall.

The featherweight, 24, lost on points to Luke Fash the night before Flynn’s fight.

It was still a milestone for Flanagan, who finally contested his first professional bout after injury forced him to wait more than six years.
