ISKA world champion Jamie Whelan turns to boxing

MTK Global is delighted to announce the signing of Jamie Whelan ahead of his professional debut. 

Whelan has won multiple world titles in kickboxing, and he is excited to now make the transition into boxing. 

Whelan said: “I’ve been kickboxing since a young age but I’ve always been more comfortable with my hands, so this has led to me heading towards my boxing career. 

"I’m so grateful to MTK Global, and after signing with them it’s given me a huge drive and made me even hungrier.

“I’ve had title fights in kickboxing and been under pressure in big fights under the lights, so hopefully that experience will go in my favour and I can perform well. 

“Everything steps up now training wise, and I’ll push as hard as I can. I’m confident that working alongside MTK, we can achieve good things.” 

Promoter Lee Eaton added: “We’re extremely happy to welcome Jamie Whelan to the team. He’s had a lot of success in other combat sports and now we’re confident he can bring that into boxing.
