Today at 2:30 pm ET on ESPN+ from London’s York Hall, MTK Global is back with the quarterfinal round of their 140-pound Golden Contract tournament. The show will also air on Sky Sports in the UK.
Being honest, this tournament looked a lot better with its original lineup, which had Zhankosh Turarov and Anthony Yigit, who withdrew some days back. An injured Lewis Benson is also out. Their replacements are Kieran Gething, Mikey Sakyi, and Jeff Ofori, which has kind of distinctly shifted the odds, at least on paper. But it also means we could be in for a hell of a Cinderella story if one of the late subs catches fire, which is the optimistic way to take it all, so why not go with that?
Either way we’ll be here with live coverage, so join in! Here’s the lineup for today:
