Ward Excited to Continue USA Exposure
Unbeaten Thomas Patrick Ward is thrilled to be showcasing his skills across America once again as he prepares to return on Saturday’s huge #MTKFightNight event at the Brentwood Centre.
Ward (26-0, 4 KOs) is back in action when he faces Brayan Mairena live on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and also live on iFL TV.
It comes just a few months after he impressed American audiences with his dominant win over Jesse Angel Hernandez during his last fight in Kansas, and Ward is ready to remind everyone just what he is capable of.
Ward said: “I’m happy to be back out in the ring and it’s fantastic to be shown live in America again on a great network like ESPN+. In my last fight in America I gained a lot of fans out there, so it’s good that they can keep an eye on me during this fight.
“I’m really looking forward to this as I love fighting. When I signed with MTK Global not very long ago they said they would get me out fairly quickly and they’ve done that which is brilliant, so I can’t wait.
“I don’t know too much about my opponent as I leave my team to focus on all of that. My trainer has studied him so I’ll do what he tells me and then we’ll go from there. I’m prepared and I’m fit and I’m ready to perform.”
Ward is part of a massive card on Saturday, that includes a WBO European welterweight title battle between world-ranked welterweight Michael McKinson and dangerous Russian Evgeny Pavko, Chantelle Cameron’s grudge WBC world title final eliminator with Anisha Basheel, plus Shaquille Day’s showdown Louis Adolphe for the Southern Area crown.
A packed undercard at the Brentwood Centre also features the likes of Harlem Eubank, Jamie Whelan, Jack Martin and many more.
