Belfast boxer Carl Frampton has signed a deal with Matthew Macklin’s MTK Global, which will see them take on an advisory role in his career.

The former two-weight world champion recently split from manager Barry McGuigan, trainer Shane McGuigan and their Cyclone Promotions company.

The Jackal has since enlisted the services of former British, European and Commonwealth champion Jamie Moore as his trainer.

Now, Frampton has confirmed the new deal with MTK.

There was always the possibility that I could go my own way, but to have someone on your side advising you and getting you the best deal possible is always important and I feel Matthew Macklin and MTK Global can definitely do that.

– Carl Frampton

Frampton remains determined to secure a third fight against Léo Santa Cruz, ideally looking to complete the trilogy with a win on home soil.

“That would be the dream come true to fight Léo in the third fight at Windsor Park and beat him, that would be pretty perfect and ideal,” he said.

“That’s an objective of mine to fight at Windsor one day and that’s what I want to do and, hopefully, it will happen.”

We are delighted and honoured that Carl has chosen MTK to guide him through this next phase of his career and we are confident that we can help deliver the big fights he has targeted.
