Former world title challenger Jamie Conlan has been working outside the ring with MTK Global the last two years, and now the 33-year-old from Belfast has been named Vice President of the company.
Conlan, the older brother of Michael, was a standout amateur who went 19-1 (11 KO) as a pro between 2009 and 2017. He retired following a one-sided defeat in challenging IBF junior bantamweight titleholder Jerwin Ancajas.
“It really is an honor for me to step into the role of Vice President,” Conlan said. “I’ve seen how much MTK has done to shape a future for boxing, opening the door to real opportunities, particularly for Irish boxing, all over the world so it’s a very proud moment for me and I am 100% committed to continuing this charge.
“Through pure heart and determination, MTK has changed the game in boxing, putting the fighter first and as someone who started my journey as a boxer this is my biggest motivation to succeeding in the role.”
