Former world champion Terry Flanagan will make his debut as an MTK Global fighter on the #MTKFightNight in Liverpool on July 12 – live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and on iFL TV.

‘Turbo’ (33-2, 13 KOs), who held the WBO world lightweight crown between 2015 and 2018, signed up with MTK Global last week and immediately has his first task on a starry card that already includes Rocky Fielding, Martin Murray and Jazza Dickens vs. Nathaniel May.

Manchester’s Flanagan said: “I'm happy to be fighting on a huge card so close to home. I'm buzzing to be out again and the plan is to stay busy to get myself back in contention at lightweight. MTK Global are giving me what I wanted by keeping me active.

"A lot of times in the past I would have a fight and then not know when I was fighting again for a while so by having a set out plan I know I'll be keeping the ball rolling and it always feels more natural and normal when I fight. That's when I'm at my best and that journey starts on July 12 in Liverpool.

"It's a big show on ESPN+ with some great names on the bill but I'm sure my fans will be louder than anybody and make lots of noise. I'm looking forward to getting back out there and proving a bit of a point. This will probably be the final chapter of my career under MTK Global, but I feel the best is still yet to come.

"There's a great atmosphere in the gym at the moment and everyone is pushing everyone on, and I'm excited to remind everyone what I'm capable of when I return on this big bill in Liverpool on July 12"

MTK Global is delighted to announce the signing of Scotland’s unbeaten super-lightweight Craig MacIntyre.

MacIntyre (10-0-1, 3 KOs) has gone from strength to strength in his career so far, and the exciting star is looking forward to the future after teaming up with MTK Global.

He said: “I’m delighted to be joining MTK Global. They look after some of the best fighters in the world, and I’m excited to now be shown in front of a wider audience.

“Every single fighter there is happy and I know I’ll be looked after the way I should be. They’ve got some huge names so it’s great to be joining a stable like that.

“They’re all at the top of their game so it stands me in good stead when I reach that level too. I’m unbeaten so far in my career, but I’ve not been as active as I’d have liked to have been. Now I’m with the right team I’m ready to kick on and start fighting for titles.

“I’m ready to get going and I believe MTK Global can do that for me. I will be fighting a few times before the end of this year and then it’s big fights for me next year. Now I’m with the right team I’m ready to be there in the mix.

“Scottish boxing is doing brilliant things just now, and there are big nights up here in Scotland. I think it’s the best it’s ever been, so I’m happy to be a part of it.”

MTK Global is delighted to announce the signing of former Scottish amateur star Mark McKeown as he turns professional.

McKeown had plenty of success as an amateur, winning multiple titles, and he’s now excited to be taking his first steps in the paid ranks with MTK Global by his side.

McKeown said: “I am very excited about joining MTK Global as I know they are the best in the business, and to reach my full potential MTK Global are the team to be with.

“As an amateur I had over 80 fights and travelled the world boxing for Scotland multiple times, in places like Australia, Armenia, Russia, Germany and Finland, where I was fighting against the best in the world.

“After some time out I came back in 2018 and won the Senior Western District Championships, getting the Best Boxer of the Tournament Trophy, and at the start of 2019 I won the Senior Scottish Championships, once again getting the Best Boxer of the Tournament Trophy.

“I am over the moon about making the transition to professional as it’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I started boxing.

“For me personally it’s a great privilege to be part of the same team as the likes of Tyson Fury, Billy Joe Saunders and Carl Frampton as I’ve always admired them and followed their careers.

“I am really excited to start my professional career with a bang as there is no shortage of big shows and opportunities in Scotland right now.

“In my first year I am looking to climb the ladder fast and get some good fights in. The fans can expect fireworks and a explosive come forward style that will be perfect for the pro ranks.”
