Globular clusters (GCs) are rich of millisecond pulsars (MSPs) and might also host single or binary intermediate mass black holes (IMBHs). We simulate 3- and 4-body encounters in order to test the possibility that an IMBH captures a MSP. The newly formed system could be revealed from the timing signal of the MSP, providing an unambiguous measure of the BH mass. In current surveys, the number of expected [IMBH,MSP] binaries in the Milky Way is ~0.1. If next-generation radio telescopes (e.g. SKA) will detect ~10 times more MSPs in GCs, we expect to observe at least one [IMBH,MSP] binary.
