Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury has led the plaudits for his new stablemate Josh Taylor – welcoming the unified super-lightweight champion to the team in typical Fury fashion.
Earlier this week, IBF and WBA champion Taylor (16-0, 12 KOs) signed an advisory deal with MTK Global, meaning he is now part of the same team as the likes of Fury, Billy Joe Saunders, Carl Frampton, Michael Conlan and many more names.
Just like Fury, Frampton and Conlan, Taylor will also be promoted by Top Rank, and the ‘Gypsy King’ has welcomed his new team-mate with a very special message.
Fury said: “I’m really excited about MTK Global’s new signing Josh Taylor, so I need to welcome him to the team.
“He’s with Top Rank and ESPN too which is great. He’s one of the best fighters on the planet, but I hope he remembers that I’m still the kingpin!”
Taylor was last in action in October, as he defeated previously unbeaten Regis Prograis after an incredible battle in their World Boxing Super Series final.
As for Fury, the lineal heavyweight champion is deep into training for his faces showdown with Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight championship at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on February 22, live on ESPN+ PPV and Fox Sports PPV.
