Team GB Starlet Blane Hyland Turns Pro With MTK Global

By Elliot Foster

Blane Hyland has turned professional after signing a managerial deal with MTK Global.

The 24-year-old southpaw from Woolton in Liverpool claimed a Junior ABA Championship, a Senior Tri-Nations gold medal and places in two ABA finals as well as selection for Great Britain in the vest and headguard.

Hyland, whose father John competed in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and whose grandfather Tommy Bache was a 1958 Empire Games silver medallist, was an amateur under the tutelage of the coaches at the Salisbury ABC in his home city.


“MTK Global is the only management company I wanted to sign for so this is great news,” said Hyland. “Ever since I first walked into a boxing gym at the age of 12, it’s been my dream to become a professional.

“I believe MTK Global is simply the best in the business and that under their guidance, I can get to where I want to go, which is the very top!”

Jamie Conlan — along with Hyland’s former Team GB teammate Tom Stalker, who is also from Liverpool — would have had a big impact on Hyland’s decision to join the management company.

And their professional development co-ordinator is ecstatic about the latest recruit to the team.

He said: “We are confident Blane can prove himself to be a special fighter as a professional.

“You don’t get on the Team GB squad without real talent and we think Blane will be even more successful in the paid ranks while providing fans with great entertainment.”

Details regarding the professional debut of Hyland will be revealed in due course.
