Derry Mathews, Iain Butcher Ink With Daniel Kinahan

Following lots of speculation MGM Marbella is pleased to announce the signing of two more boxers; Derry Mathews and Iain Butcher.  After lengthy talks both fighters who already train at MGM Marbella are now set to be managed by Daniel Kinahan, adding to his portfolio which includes Tom Stalker, Bradley Saunders, Anthony Fitzgerald and Declan Geraghty.

30-year old Derry Mathews is currently two-time British Lightweight title holder and he cannot say enough about how excited he is to be managed by Daniel.  “This is a great opportunity, I will be managed by someone who I believe will be one of the best managers in the world in the next few years.” 

After training at MGM for his last fight against Martin Gethin in May, Mathews says he can´t wait to get back there. “ I think MGM is the best place for me, it will be great to team up with Taff again and be part of the team, while knowing that Daniel will get me the best deals and he has got my best interests at heart – The Future is Bright!” 

Derry is looking for 5 fights a year including a big European title fight; on 26th July when he will be defending his title against Manchester´s Terry Flanagan.  Watch this space…..

Popular Motherwell flyweight Iain Butcher with a record of 11-1 and 4 KO's is also on board and equally excited about the opportunity.  22 year-old Butcher felt at this stage of his career he needed someone to push harder for him. “I met Daniel and knew straight away he could open big doors for me, I want to be boxing on TV and I think he can make it happen.”

Butcher is trained by Danny Vaughan and ranked 9th in the WBO rankings, however ultimately he wants to box for a British title but knows he has to put in the work first.  “I need a few more 12 round fights and to put in lots of hard work with the boys at MGM, it´s a cracking gym I can´t wait to get stuck in.”.

“I´m very happy to have both Derry and Ian on board” says Daniel,  “they are both really nice lads.  Iain butcher I believe can be a future star, at the moment he is mandatory for the British title and we are hoping that’s our next move.  Derry Mathew, his career speaks for its self, he has never been in a boring fight and he always comes to win. I believe there is a lot left in Derry and hopefully we can push him towards European and World titles.”
