MTK Global have announced the signing of unbeaten featherweight Jacob Robinson – son of former world champion Steve Robinson

 
Wales’ ‘Baby Jake’ Robinson (2-0) is currently 23 years of age and is determined to follow in the illustrious footsteps of his father, who made seven defences of the WBO featherweight crown in the mid-1990s.
 
Robinson said: “I feel that MTK Global can give me the opportunities to reach my goals. My first ambition is to be Welsh champion and that could be just a handful of fights away.

“After that, I’m going to set my sights on gaining experience and challenging for the British title in a few years’ time. I have youth on my side and if I work hard then I believe MTK Global can take me on this journey.
 
“It would be great to follow my Dad’s footsteps. I’m a southpaw and I punch fast and hard with both hands. I love to counter-punch and the right hook is my favourite shot.
 
“My biggest boxing idols are Pernell Whitaker, Guillermo Rigondeaux and, of course, Steve Robinson!”
 
MTK Global International Operations Director Paul Gibson added: “We’re delighted to have secured the signing of one of Wales’ brightest prospects in Jacob.
 
“The family history is well-documented – Jacob’s father Steve achieved extraordinary things and we’ve already seen flashes of potential suggesting Jacob will do the same.

“As we continue to expand in the boxing hotbed of Wales and look forward to putting on more shows there, signing a fighter of Jacob’s quality is another coup for us.”
