Scot MacIntyre signs with MTK, set for April outing

Ringside 20/01/2018

Undefeated Glaswegian Craig MacIntyre will return to the ring in April for his first bout under the MTK Global banner.

MacIntyre has signed a management deal with MTK after building an 8-0 (3KOs) record, most recently stopping Czech opponent Michal Vosyka in a quick-fire, one-round victory in Edinburgh last November.

A talented amateur, the 22-year-old super-lightweight started his professional career under the guidance of former British and Commonwealth champion Willie Limond, who will remain a part of MacIntyre’s team.

“I am delighted to be joining Team MTK and look forward to the journey ahead,” said MacIntyre. “I want to start challenging for titles soon and I think MTK will help me do that.”

MTK Scotland’s Sam Kynoch believes his new signing has great potential and he has already moved to book a fight date for the promising six-foot super-lightweight.

“Craig is a fantastic talent – he’s a very stylish boxer and he’s big for his weight,” said Kynoch. “He is a great addition to our stable and his first outing under the MTK banner will be on our April 7 promotion in Paisley.”
