Basildon’s Davis Pagan admits he can’t wait to fight under the MTK banner as he makes his third outing of the year.
Having avenged his only career loss to start the year, Pagan then went on to score an impressive win over Sylwester Walczak in April.
The 26-year-old has spent his entire life around the Essex area and reckons the chance to fight back in his home town was an opportunity too good to turn down.
“MTK are becoming a huge household name so to get the opportunity to fight on their card at the Brentwood centre was fantastic,” said the Basildon resident.
“I have been to one of their show before as a spectator and was blown away by the classy set up so I can’t wait to see what’s up when I’m fighting.
“It’s great for me as I’ve grown up in the area and my first club was in Laidon called Berry Boys, one of my closest pals Richie Gray I trained with at Berry and he’s on the card.
Then you’ve got the likes of Adrian Martin and Tey Lynn Jones, both looking really good at the minute. I’m looking forward to seeing them progress.”
As much as the welterweight enjoys preparation for his camp, he reckons that the one downside to being stuck in the gym is the lack of football in his life.
“That’s the one problem with being in camp, I don’t often get to a game!” he continued.
“I split my weekends between Arsenal and Billericay depending on who’s at home.
“Arsenal have always been my team but over the last few years I’ve gone down Billericay with my family as its local.
“They have a millionaire chairman just come in, so who knows, in a few years we might see them against each other!”
