MTK Global is proud to announce the signing of its first Mexican fighter in national champion Chris Florez.
The 23-year-old southpaw, who fights out of Sacramento, CA turns professional after amassing an extraordinary amateur record of 116-11 and winning bronze at the American Continental Championship in 2017.
Florez said: “I’m very excited to turn pro now and I am happy that an international top brand such as MTK Global has given me the trust to become a professional champion.
I’ve heard so many good things about MTK Global and I had a chance to see first-hand how they work when they took Frenchman Nordine Oubaali to the WBC world title in Las Vegas this year.
“That is where I want to be as well and I know my will, my talent and MTK’s guidance will take me there.”
Manager of Latin American Operations Mariana Caballero said: “When MTK Global decided to step into Mexico last year we wanted to be sure to bring on board people that matter.
“Chris has been a bantamweight champion of Mexico and anyone who knows Mexican boxing knows that becoming a national champion in that division usually leads to professional world championships. That is exactly what we have in mind for Chris.
“We feel that his style and his ring smartness will make him a household name in Mexico and in the USA since Chris has the US nationality as well.
“We are very excited to officially start our operations in Mexico now. Viva MTK Global! Viva Mexico!”
