John O’Donnell signs with MTK Global after two-years away

MTK Global have announced the signing of former Commonwealth and English champion John O’Donnell as he looks to have a big impact in 2019. 

O’Donnell (32-2) has mixed at title level for a number of years, and he has fired out a warning to the rest of the welterweight division as he prepares to make his return. 

O’Donnell said: “I'm over the moon to sign with MTK. They’re doing wonders for boxing and they are one of the best teams in the business. 

“I want to get in the ring as soon as possible. It’s been nearly two years since my last fight. I’m ready to get as active as I can and get some titles in the next 12 months and make a statement. 

“After signing for a big company like MTK I’ve got the buzz back and the fire in my belly. I’ve been training hard over Christmas and New Year. Welterweights watch out, I’m coming.” 

Promoter Lee Eaton added: “It’s great to welcome John to the team. He’s a great fighter and is a former Commonwealth and English champion who has been involved in many great fights in the past. 

"After nearly two years out he will have one fight back and then will be straight back into those sorts of big fights.”
