Resurgent Hosea Burton Signs Up With MTK Global
MTK Global is delighted to confirm the signing of former British light-heavyweight king Hosea Burton as he continues his hunt for a major title shot.
‘The Hammer’ (21-1-KO10) has recovered from his sole career defeat to Frank Buglioni with three ruthless victories and is determined to remind the boxing world of his talents on a big stage at the first opportunity.
Burton said: “I’d like to fight for European and world titles in the next 12 months. I’m turning 30 and in the prime of my life. If I’m going to do anything big in my career then it’s got to be soon and MTK Global will help me do that.
“MTK Global seem to be in with everyone. They’ve good relationships with lots of people. Other management teams seem to work with one promotional group only but MTK Global is different.
“The Frank Buglioni fight was probably the biggest exposure fight of my career. I’ve had three fights since and nobody’s really known about them. Now I’m with MTK Global, they can make the big fights happen again.
“I was beating Buglioni comfortably and got done in the last round. I should’ve had an immediate rematch but they didn’t want it. MTK Global is the team to get me on the right track to being known again.
“I’m at that point of my career where I’d love to fight Frank again but there’s got to be something for it. I imagine it means a lot to both of us but he doesn’t want it because he doesn’t want to get beaten.
“I’m ready to fight on a bigger stage than the British. I think everyone knows that. Since my defeat, I’ve trained properly and I have a new conditioning coach. I know what it takes to last 12 rounds properly now and I’m ready to show my best.”
MTK Global Scout Tom Stalker said: “It’s great to bring a fighter of Hosea’s undoubted class to the team.
“Hosea is one of the most underrated fighters around. He was a minute away from beating Buglioni to regain the British title but we believe he can succeed at an even higher level.”
