    Young Danny is following in big Dave’s path and has signed with MTK Global



    Seems like a decent signing someone who will sell tickets at an area level.

    Only seen a clip of an amateur bout so its tough to say but according to Allen his game is more suited to the pros.

    I think he has lost the majority of his amateur fights. Hope the boy does well.

    Makes you wonder why turn over from Amateur if the signs of success aren’t already there.

    Guess he’ll be matched with complete cans for his first 20 or so fights while he’s learning on the job.

    He’s not bad, you can see clips of his amateur fights and training on his and Allen’s IG accounts. He’s improved massively and has a decent skill set.

    However this seems to be a move too soon to the pros and he is built like a twig with very little discernible muscle mass.

    He seems okay, moves his head well enough. However he has literally only just turned 18, and is certainly still developing. No "man" strength yet, so he is going to need a few years of soft opposition that isn't coming to win whilst he grows. I can see him being one of those that are like 16-0 with no knockouts, only faced losing opposition then loses at area / English level.

    I haven't seen all that much of him but from what Allen has shared on social media, he does have a bit of skill - think he's had roughly 30-40 am bouts and a Yorkshire title but that's all I really know. He is very very young though and will need to be moved very slowly, gain his man strength etc.

    Good luck to him though, following his dream and landed himself a good opportunity with MTK. The hard work starts now.

    Seems very early to turn over to but good luck to him. Assuming Jamie Moore will have some input with him now Dave is training with him too

    Good luck to him -- seems a nice guy on social media but has lots to learn based on clips I have seen

    Think he loses basically every AM fight he's in. I'll still watch him though. ****, I'll watch anyone at the moment

    For a promoter makes sense, will do tickets, get numbers on youtube etc. Sure they can find people bad enough for him to beat.
