MTK Global is proud to announce a partnership with world-renowned trainer and advisor Andre Rozier and his company Havoc Management and Advisory – allowing the two boxing powerhouses to work together moving forward.
Rozier’s Havoc has been a mainstay in New York and throughout the world for over 20 years, with Rozier guiding the careers of eight world champions in multiple capacities. He officially formed Havoc Management and Advisory in 2019, signing an array of international talent that ranges from established world champions to amateur standouts.
The new link-up now creates plenty of fresh opportunities for boxers, and sees MTK Global continue to branch out in the US with another extremely exciting move, following the recent groundbreaking launch of MTK Miami, and huge signings of IBF super-featherweight champion JoJo Diaz, plus up-and-coming sensations Lorenzo ‘Truck’ Simpson and Jonathan Lopez.
MTK Global Vice-President Jamie Conlan said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with world-renowned trainer and advisor Andre Rozier and his company, Havoc Management and Advisory.
“This is something we have been speaking about for some time now. Both MTK and Havoc share the same vision in boxing and will continue to put the fighter first and give our fighters the best opportunities possible to showcase their talents.
“This is another one of many moves we are making stateside as we continue to grow globally, and having someone as knowledgeable as ‘Dre’ as a partner will only enhance our brand, and our foundation in New York is now set for exciting times ahead.”
World-renowned trainer and advisor Rozier added: “I am delighted to sign a partnership with MTK Global and Havoc. MTK Global is the world leader in athlete management when it comes to combat sports, and Havoc has been ingrained in world boxing for over two decades. Uniting two major entities together with the common goal being delivering success for the athletes seemed a natural thing to do.
“I think what Jamie Conlan and MTK Global have been doing with athletes is tremendous and they also recognised what Havoc has been doing too, so to reach a US-based partnership made a lot of sense to the team and me.
“MTK Global have an array of talent as do we, so I am very excited for all the possibilities that our partnership can create, and even more excited to see the short and long term results of it. The future is very bright.”
MTK Global signs world-ranked Pagara
MTK Global and D4G Promotions are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated super-bantamweight contender Albert Pagara on an advisory deal.
Filipino star Pagara (32-1, 23 KOs) is regarded as one of the best 122lb fighters in the world, and is currently ranked no. 7 by the WBO.
With 23 knockouts in 32 fights, he is one of the hardest-hitting super-bantamweights in the division, and proudly becomes MTK Global’s first signing from the Philippines.
He teams up with MTK Global and D4G Promotions in a collaborative effort after having his career superbly guided by ALA Promotions, and the 26-year-old is looking forward to the future.
Pagara said: “I am really excited to join with MTK Global and D4G Promotions. It’s a great honour to be part of the same team as some of the biggest names in professional boxing, so I am happy and thankful for this opportunity.
“I have a good record and I’m pleased with what I’ve achieved so far, but I feel I can still do so much more. That’s why I signed up with MTK Global and D4G Promotions.
“I started boxing when I was eight-years-old because of my father, and it led to my brother and I both becoming professional boxers and joining ALA Promotions. I give big credit to ALA Promotions for my success and most of what I have achieved in my career as a boxer. I wouldn’t be where I am now if not because of them.
“I hope to soon fight for a title, and I know MTK Global and D4G Promotions will help me in this regard. I have complete trust in them to help me achieve my dreams.”
MTK Global Chief Strategy Officer Paul Gibson added: “The Filipino market is one we’ve been interested in for a long time so it is a pleasure to announce Albert Pagara as our first signing from the country.
“He is a fantastic addition to our super bantamweight stable where he sits high in the WBO rankings alongside Michael Conlan, Thomas Patrick Ward and Davey Oliver Joyce.
“We were very sorry to hear our friends at ALA Promotions were forced to close but we are determined to work with Filipino stars like Albert and help take them to the next level.”
Ahmed A. Seddiqi of D4G Promotions said: “We’re thrilled to announce the signing of Albert Pagara, and we’re confident that by working with MTK Global we can help him achieve his dream of becoming world champion.
“He’s an extremely exciting talent, and we’re looking forward to seeing him showcase his skills when he returns to the ring in the near future.”
