Two extremely talented fighters will be making their professional debuts next month – as Paul Ryan and Carl Fail will both compete on the huge #MTKFightNight event on March 19.
The show takes place at the University of Bolton Stadium, and will be broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and worldwide on IFL TV.
Irish prospect Ryan enters the paid ranks after a memorable career as an amateur, winning three national titles, a European silver medal, a world bronze medal and much more.
Northampton’s Fail was just as successful during his time as an amateur, becoming a multiple-time National and GB champion and a two-time European silver medallist. He will now look to follow in the footsteps of his brother Ben, who won his professional debut back in September.
MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton said: “We’re thrilled to add Paul Ryan and Carl Fail to our MTK Fight Night card on March 19. Both fighters look destined for huge things in their careers and it’s going to be great to see them get things up and running.
“Next month’s card is going to be stacked from top to bottom, just like all of our other planned events this year, so we can’t wait to get our schedule underway.”
Elsewhere on the March 19 card, Lee McGregor challenges Karim Guerfi for his European bantamweight title, while Liam Walsh faces Paul Hyland Jnr for the vacant British lightweight title. More fights for the card will be announced in the coming days.
