“I feel the next few years are going to be huge for me. I plan to win a world title at flyweight and then move up. I’m very, very excited to sign this deal with MTK Global.”
Professional Development Coordinator Jamie Conlan said in a press release: “If you know your boxing, you know that Andrew Selby is one of the most exciting talents in the game.
“Having made his name in the amateurs as one of the leading lights on the planet, we’re confident the time is right for Andrew to fulfill his undoubted potential as a professional.
