    The man KO'd Zepeda in 2 rounds, who just really should have beaten Jose Carlos Ramirez.

    He also KOd Magdeleno 5 rounds quicker than Teofimo Lopez who everyone thinks is the n xt big thing.

    Does Turbo Terry still have a chance at making waves at 140? His loss to Hooker was unfortunate and Prograis is a top class operator.

    Terry always seemed to me to be a good boxer but only really seems to have one gear, at 135 he had a size advantage that obviously helped out a lot but at 140 I think he's going to come unstuck

    Well I think his real advantage was his size and since he moved in weight he is having a really hard time. Even if he goes down to 135 again he has no chance to compete with the top dogs there. Yes his performance against Zepada was impressive but wasn't this like 4-5 years ago already?

    How does that hold any relevance? Both guys dominated Magdaleno. It's not like Lopez struggled in there. He toyed with the man.

    Flanagan is solid, but as stated above; he had a size advantage at 135 and fights in mainly one gear.
    He is OK at everything he does, but there is nothing special about him.

    Flanagan is good enough to maybe one day pick up a belt at 140. Him vs Ramirez would be a fun fight and a winnable one for Terry.

    Zepeda injured his shoulder in the match, and had to have surgery on it to repair it afterward, had that not happened he would have UD'd Flanagan, just like I predicted he would, he won the first round relatively easily.

    As far as the win over Magdaleno goes, it's very simple southpaw vs southpaw makes the other guy susceptible to right hooks when he usually isn't, Teofimo Lopez didn't have that advantage with Diego. Then when you add in that Diego was moving up in weight, against a huge lightweight, that's a recipe for disaster. It's the same reason John Ryder has been a killing machine at super middleweight, he's been matched very well against other southpaws.

    Terry Flanagan is decent, tough as nails and has a hell of a chin, that's about it.

    I don't consider his loss to Hooker unfortunate. He was well beaten in his own backyard.

    LMAO, please do not check only Boxrec and talk like it's a fact. Terry Flanagan never stopped Zepeda or knocked him out / down. It was an injury doctors stoppage in the corner because of a really bad shoulder injury. This topic is an epic fail.

    Pretty sure Zepeda dislocated his shoulder against Flanagan? But anyway, Terry was a big lightweight with reasonable but fairly rudimentary boxing skills, southpaw stance and he has a good chin. Apart from that, not too much to say. Terry at 140 is Euro level, like a Yigit type. In fact Yigit probably would beat Turbo Terry.
