MTK Global has announced the signing of former lightweight world champion Miguel Vazquez.
Vazquez (42-10, 16 KOs) has operated at the highest level in boxing for over a decade, and reigned as IBF lightweight champion from 2010 to 2014.
The 33-year-old Mexican star was recently in action when he put in a superb performance against Lewis Ritson, who walked away with a highly controversial twelve round split decision win.
Vazquez said: “I’m very happy to join MTK Global. They have a very serious team that has delivered everything that they have committed to. It’s a great company and I’m so glad to join them.
“I’m happy that people are recognising my talent and style and that I’m getting support from different corners from the world. I had a rough start in my career but have been quite solid through it, and that people recognise this hard work is very fulfilling for me.
“It’s an honour to be working with a company that manages such big names. It is huge motivation for me to work even harder and put my name among the elite fighters in the division and sport. I know that MTK Global will give me good fights and I know they will give the opportunities that I need.”
MTK Global Chief Strategy Officer Paul Gibson added: “It’s a pleasure to welcome a fighter of Miguel’s pedigree to the team.
“He’s been operating at the highest level for more than a decade and UK fans know him well from recent battles with MTK trio Josh Taylor, Ohara Davies and Lewis Ritson.
“Luck hasn’t always been on Miguel’s side but he remains as determined as ever to become a two-time world champion and our job now is to help him reach that goal.”
