Michael McKinson will face 'Ruthless' Ryan Kelly in the second defence of his WBC International title

Michael McKinson and Mikey Sakyi will put titles on the line against Ryan Kelly and Id Hill respectively when MTK Global returns to Brentwood on March 9 – live on iFL TV. 

WBC International Silver welterweight champion McKinson (15-0-KO2) faces the dangerous Kelly (13-1-KO7) while Southern Area super-lightweight king Sakyi (7-2-KO3) meets the challenge of Essex-based Hill (8-2-2-KO2).

With a lengthy undercard to be announced in due course, MTK Global President Bob Yalen is enthusiastic over another stellar night of boxing at the Brentwood Centre.

Yalen said: “We’re relishing the chance to go and put on yet another fantastic show at the Brentwood Centre, which has become one of the headquarters of the small-hall boxing scene. 

“There have already been some absolute classics on MTK Global shows in Brentwood with several titles on the line and we’re looking to step it up with each and every show in terms of the quality of the fights, the production and the event in general. 

“In addition to true 50-50s at the top of our cards, we’re looking to provide a stage for some of the sport’s brightest prospects – both domestically and internationally – to send rivals and fans alike early statements.

“The last few shows we’ve put on at the venue have sold out and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank the fans for their continued support. Without them, events like this simply wouldn’t happen.” 

Portsmouth puncher McKinson was last seen producing a masterclass against Sam McNess at York Hall to cement his world-ranking while new signing to MTK Global Sakyi stopped Siar Ozgul in stunning fashion at the same venue back in July to lift his title.
