MTK Global announce signing of unbeaten super-bantamweight sensation Lucien Reid

The Londoner (7-0-KO4), who was a standout amateur before turning professional, is trained by the world-renowned Adam Booth and is a gym-mate and sparring partner of Michael Conlan.

Reid said: “I beat everyone in the amateurs and hopefully joining MTK Global will mean that I’m much more active now.

“Turning professional has been hard so far but I know I’m going to make it work. Punching people in the face for a living is what I love and joining MTK Global is going to help my career, my mindset and everything else.

“I’ll have a few warm-up fights and then I want to go straight for the British title. I need a few rounds because I’ve been out of the ring for nine months but there’s no point in looking at the Southern Area or the English titles.

“I couldn’t care less about who I fight. I spar Ryan Burnett and Michael Conlan so I’ve got the best people around to push me on. Having fighters like those two around who are so successful helps merealise boxing can provide what I want.

“Adam Booth is the best trainer I’ve ever worked with and I’ve trained and sparred everyone. Nobody has taught me like he has. He’s got the movement himself – he does it and we have to imitate.

“Longer term, to make more money you need to step up and fight bigger people. I want to titles at super-bantamweight and then once I’m established, I’ll move up a weight division.”
