Charlie's happy to do the rounds.

Charlie Flynn has warned his fans not to bet on him winning by KO in his second professional bout - because he's determined to go the distance.

Lightweight Flynn (21) reckons he could have stopped Englishman Ibrar Riyaz in his pro debut in December.

But on the advice of trainer Peter Harrison he settled for a points win.

And he'll be happy to do The same at Glasgow's istle Hotel on Friday.

Flynn - who won gold at Glasgow 2014 - said of his debut ght: "Peter told me I didn't have to try to knock my opponent out.

"He pointed out that I wouldn't gain anything from doing that and he was right. So I decided to outbox him for the four rounds.

"That worked out perfectly because I'd never boxed for four rounds before. When I'm training I spar for 12 or 15 rounds but that's not the same - it's the di-erence betwe - football training and playing a game.

"Now I've got rounds under my belt. If I'd just gone in for the kill I'd have learned nothing."

Flynn's opponent is yet "I" to be named but he said: "I won't be jumping in at the deep end when it comes to title ghts. I'll wait until I'm good and ready."
