MTK Global confirm new ring announcer after search

RINGSIDE 21/01/2019

MTK Global is delighted to announce Terry Kavanagh as its new MC after sifting through countless audition tapes from around the world.

Dublin’s Kavanagh, who has worked on a wide variety of combat sports promotions already – including TG4 TV, K1, Fightbox and more – will become the in-ring voice of MTK Global’s hugely popular fight nights broadcast live on iFL TV.

Kavanagh said: “I’m over the moon to be working with MTK Global. I already know a couple of fighters under its umbrella but it’s such a huge company and I can’t wait to get this going. 2019 is going to be a huge year.

“I’m thrilled with the opportunity to build a huge platform with a sole company rather than various promoters. At least 24 shows in a year is great for me. I believe we’re all going to work well together and I look forward to bringing my contribution to the team.

“There are a good few celebrity MCs by now. You notice them on the shows now and it’s a good thing. It’s a great thing to stand in the middle of the ring in a tuxedo, look and sound the part and then hear the crowd roar back at you.

“We do have the easier job compared to the fighters, obviously! We’re not getting in there with blood, sweat and tears like the boxers are so fair play to them as well.”

MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton added: “We’re proud to welcome Terry to the team after a fiercely contested competition. There were oceans of applicants from all over the world but he stood out for us.

“Having already signed up an elite commentary team in Alex Steedman and Barry Jones, we wanted to bring in an MC who could also mirror the growth of these iFL-streamed fight nights and of our company in general. We believe we’ve found that in Terry.

“We look forward to welcoming fans to enjoy this new and improved experience. With six fight nights in six weeks kicking off at York Hall on February 22, we’re going to hit the ground running; and running fast.”
