    Seem to be getting a decent promotional stable together but still no Uk TV deal yet


    Liam Walsh, Terry Flanagan, Jazza Dickens, Lee Mcgregor, Hovhannes Bachkov, Reece Mcfadden, Jack Bateson, Sean Mccomb, Pierce O'Leary, Gary Cully, Carl Fail, Jordan Reynolds, Mark Dickinson etc

    No, not unless they decide to stop letting their fighters work with both and make them work exclusively with them

    No, the drug money will eventually run out...

    Got to stop letting their fighters work with Hearn / Warren too as BritBox said.

    If Hearn goes exclusively with DAZN in the UK, then MTK could sign a deal with Sky???

    However, I'm a bit skeptical at MTK's model. How they are making money from their shows and paying fighters I will never know. They seem to be signing every half decent amateur, dropping the ones who aren't any good, and then trying to do something with the rest.

    They also have the Azim brothers too. I'm surprised they didn't sign with Hearn or Warren tbh.

    Lol in every thread youre mentioning some pakistani or arab bum fighter

    It's a shame Ilya Popov's (Russia) brutal KO of Hassan Azim in the amateurs has conveniently suddenly been taken off youtube that guy looks like he has a worse chin than Amir Khan and Atif Shafiq:lol:

    I suppose the problem they will face , outside of Coronavirus, is that they started off as a management company and now are developing a promotional element. That can be a fine line in keeping all of your fighters happy.

    Talking about MTK I was in a local takeaway yesterday and they had a poster on the window for a local fighter, mark mcgowan, for his fight in Dubai in Feb.

    it was obviously done by MTK and basically just said to support him, obv wasn’t for selling tickets but to boost his profile. I liked to see it

    Anyone involved in boxing should look at the sad life and death of Nicky Booth - drug dealing scum should not be anywhere near boxing.

    Sky are a disgrace allowing Macklin employment given his association with vermin.

    It really is a catch 22 situation with MTK, you have fighters and gyms struggling to get by with little to no help from the authorities then you have MTK stepping in at grass roots level with wads of dirty cash to hand out. I do not blame the young fighters who are trying to get on in boxing and in life but you would have to respect an old hand who stands up and says "no, I do not want your dirty money around here".

    Stumpy still seething with rage as his beloved Man side lost to Stiff Utd last night and Stevie G's Glasgow Rangers FC march on.
