RINGSIDE 03/10/2018

MTK Global is proud to confirm the signing of Iranian-born cruiserweight Mohammadali Bayat Farid as he embarks on a world title hunt.

The 29-year-old Farid (12-1-1-KO12) fights out of Dubai and having stopped every single one of his victims to date, feels ready to graduate to fighting the big names of the division under his new management.

Farid said: “I’m here to take on the best. I watched the World Boxing Super Series and I’m ready to take on the cruiserweights who fought in it.

“I’m on a great run of stoppage victories and I am an explosive puncher. I have big dreams I want to achieve in this sport and signing with MTK Global shows my ambition.

“It was an easy decision to sign with MTK Global – its reputation is growing all the time and I know they can secure me the opportunities I need to show the world how good I am.

“I only started boxing to lose weight originally but now here I am ready to take on the world. The WBC belt is the one I want the most. Bring on the challenges.”

MTK Global International Operations Director Paul Gibson added: “We’re pleased to add a fighter of Mohammadali’s undoubted class and potential to our roster.

“He’s currently on a brutal streak of stoppages but what’s most exciting is that there’s still so much more to come and he’s improving with every fight.

“The cruiserweight division is obviously dominated by Oleksandr Usyk at the moment but Mohammadali will move towards a shot at whoever is holding those world titles. He’s an exciting fighter to watch.”
