Willie Limond Inks With MTK Ahead of His Comeback

Former British, Commonwealth, European and world champion Willie Limond has signed for MTK Global and warned rivals he's returning to the ring with major titles in mind.

The 39-year-old Glaswegian (40-5-KO12) is one of Scotland's most successful ever fighters and has already fought the likes of Erik Morales, Amir Khan and Anthony Crolla during a career that has yielded titles at both lightweight and super-lightweight.

Limond said: "I know I'm getting on a bit but believe me - there is still a major title left in me. The up-and-comers will see me as a stepping stone but stepping stones can be slippery.

"I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring and winning big. This is my 20th year as a professional and I've still got the hunger for this game.

"I don't think I would come back and lace up the gloves under any other banner but MTK Global. I spoke with Danny Vaughan who I've known for years and he made it happen for me."

MTK Global CEO Sandra Vaughan said: "Willie is an icon of Scottish boxing and we are delighted he has chosen us to guide his return.

"Willie is an example to all aspiring fighters in terms of his skill, heart, professionalism and dedication and we are proud to welcome him."

Limond last fought in December 2016 when he stopped Michal Vosyka inside two rounds in Glasgow.
