MTK sign 46 year-old Lolenga Mock as title hunt continues

RINGSIDE 02/05/2018


Lolenga Mock has signed with MTK Global after his clinical victory over Dmitrii Chudinov earned him a spot in the WBC top 15.

The Congolese super-middleweight, who is based in Denmark, has just turned 46 and is on an 11-fight winning streak stretching back to 2013.

Mock (42-14-1-KO13) famously dropped David Haye way back in 2003 and despite his advancing years, he’s adamant he’s in superb shape and world title glory awaits.

Mock said: “I’m ranked 15th in the world now and the WBC is the route I’m going down. I want to fight for a world title. That’s always been the dream.

“I’ll be looking to fight in England again. Before I fought Haye, nobody knew about me. Then everyone did and it’d be great to be back there.

“I’ve done things the hard way since my last defeat in 2013. I came back and had seven fights in 12 months – winning all of them against tough contenders in order to improve my ranking.

“I’m very glad to make this link-up with MTK Global. I know they’re the best managers out there and they’ll get me the chance to fight to become a world champion.”

MTK Global International Operations Director Paul Gibson added: “We’re pleased to welcome a fighter of Lolenga’s experience and stature to our team. We believe he has a real chance of achieving his dream late in his career.

“Since he’s been afforded the chance to fight in his adopted home country of Denmark, his results against top quality opposition speak for themselves. Now it’s up to us to deliver him a shot at the big time.”
