Frank Bruno Gets Trainer's Licence From BBBofC

By Elliot Foster

Frank Bruno is set for a return to boxing.

The former world heavyweight champion has been granted his trainer’s licence by the British Boxing Board of Control.

Bruno, 55, won 40 of 45 fights in his career, with 38 of those by knockout.

And now, after not fighting since 1996 following his knockout defeat at the hands of Mike Tyson, Bruno has a way back in.

"Great to be in the ring coming from a different angle," Bruno, who made his professional debut in 1982 and has suffered with bipolar disorder in recent years, said on his Instagram page.

“Looking forward to start training people next year… watch this space.”

Further details regarding the names who will be trained by Bruno will be revealed in due course.


Ciaran McVarnock is no longer being managed by MTK Global.

The news was revealed in a statement on the managerial outfit’s website recently.

McVarnock impressed in his last outing with a first-round knockout over Ben Mulligan, but the talented lightweight –– who is undefeated (8-0-1, 2 KOs) and from Belfast –– will continue his career without the backing of MTK.

Meanwhile, Irish amateur star Taylor McGoldrick will turn professional with MTK.

Decorated in the vest, McGoldrick is planning on making a massive impact in the paid code.

He is set to campaign at super-middleweight and is targeting his debut before the year is out.

“I’m extremely pleased to be turning professional with MTK,” McGoldrick said. “They are one of the biggest names in world boxing. This is a huge dream of mine and I’m really excited to get going.

“I’ve been boxing since the age of nine, competing in several competitions and beating some of the best competitors from all around Ireland.

“I feel my style is well suited for the pro game; I hit hard, have a lot of heart and bring excitement to the ring.

“I want to get adjusted to the pros and make my debut this year. In the long-term, I plan on becoming a world champion. I know it’s a long and hard road ahead but that is my goal and something I’ve dreamed of since I started boxing.”
