Nurse win earns Brubaker MTK Global contract

RINGSIDE 22/10/2018

MTK Global is proud to announce the signing of welterweight Jack Brubaker following his victory over Tyrone Nurse back in May.

The 26-year-old ‘Gelignite’ (14-2-1-KO7) outpointed former English and British champion Nurse in Sydney and is now looking to push on towards the world stage.

Brubaker, who fights out of Cronulla in New South Wales, has already claimed WBC world youth honours and defended the Oriental & Pacific titles three times having won the Australian Golden Gloves despite a relatively short amateur career.

Brubaker said: “The reason I signed for MTK Global is simple: they want to sign future world champions and I want to win world titles.

“A lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone into getting me to this point. I owe it to myself, my family and my team to give this everything I’ve got. I’m a tall, aggressive boxer who always comes to fight.

“Mike Altamura and MTK Global are the best in the business and I’m humbled to be given this opportunity.”

MTK Global International Consultant Altamura added: “Jack is a very talented kid with a warm personality. I’m looking forward to seeing his career unfolds under the MTK Global umbrella.

“I feel a lot of opportunities will be presented to him over the next 12-18 months. As he continues to learn his craft, he’ll be able to mix it with the world’s best in due course.

“Jack brings a very fan-friendly and exciting brand of boxing to the ring and as for his nickname ‘Gelignite’ – he packs some dynamite in those hands.”
