30 Oct MTK Global’s Sean Turner set for Gjergjaj test
MTK Global are pleased to confirm top Irish Heavyweight Sean Turner will face Arnold Gjergjaj on December 9th in Basle, Switzerland.
Turner (11-1, 7 KO’s) will make the journey to Switzerland in confident mood after a dominant victory over Blaise Mendouo at the Devenish Complex in Belfast.
The Dublin Heavyweight controlled the six round contest and won every round, landing some heavy combinations throughout the fight. Turner’s performance helped rebuild momentum after suffering his first professional defeat and will be determined to deliver the biggest display of his career to date.
Gjergjaj (30-1, 22 KO’s) suffered his only career defeat at the hands of former unified Cruiserweight and World Heavyweight champion David Haye in 2016.
The Swiss star returned with a big-punching display in December later that year and stopped Jasmin Hasic, dropping the lesser experienced Jasmin Hasic in the fourth before the referee ended the contest in the fifth.
It’s set to be an excellent clash between two exciting Heavyweight boxers and Turner will be looking to pick up the biggest victory of his career.
