MTK Global and Rick Mirigian are delighted to announce the signing of WBA super-flyweight champion Joshua Franco.
World champion Franco will be advised by MTK Global and managed by Mirigian, and becomes the latest big name to team up with the two boxing forces following the signing of Vergil Ortiz Jr earlier this week.
Franco was in action on Saturday, where the 25-year-old went up against Andrew Moloney at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and he now has big ambitions for the future.

MTK Global CEO Bob Yalen said: “We’re thrilled to announce the signing of Joshua Franco. He’s one of the best super-flyweights in the world and proudly becomes MTK Global’s 11th current world champion.
“It’s a privilege to again be working with our strategic partner Rick Mirigian on yet another extremely exciting talent.”
