MTK Global have added another world-class gym to their roster by launching MTK Marseille

The superb facility, known as the 'Boxing Club Larbi Mohammedi,' is located in Southern France, and will be ran by highly-respected trainer Norredine Mohammedi.

MTK Global already boasts an impressive collection of talent in France, including WBC bantamweight champion Nordine Oubaali, European bantamweight champion Karim Guerfi, and unbeaten female stars Elhem Mekhaled and Segolene Lefebvre, and Mohammedi is delighted to now continue the development in that region.

Mohammedi said: "I'm very happy to work with MTK Global. I want my gym to be recognised all over the world and I want any boxer of any level to feel welcome here.

"We have two large rings, a weights room, a huge area with more than 30 heavy bags, plus much more. We want to have champions from around the world of boxing visit this gym.

"I trained by brother who was a French champion, but he died in a motorcycle accident. The gym is named in his honour and we now train several exciting professional boxers."

MTK Global Commercial Director Jack Johnstone said: "This another proud moment for MTK Global and a huge step forward in the development of French Boxing.

"Norredine has dedicated his life to the sport and we are delighted to be working with him and his team to develop and nurture the huge amount of talent down in the south of France.

"The 400 m2 facility in Aix-en-Provance has everything an elite fighter would need to train at the highest level."

The launch of MTK Marseille means MTK Global has now expanded to an incredible 24 locations worldwide, following the unveiling of MTK Worcestershire, MTK Fuerteventura, MTK Alberta, MTK Leeds, MTK Miami, MTK Lake District, MTK Munich, MTK Denmark (based in Aarhus) and MTK Costa Brava earlier this year.

They join strongholds in Osaka, Japan; Marbella and Tenerife, Spain; London, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Scotland, United Kingdom; Johannesburg, South Africa; Santa Catarina, Brazil; Sydney, Australia; Almaty, Kazakhstan; Tucson, Arizona, USA and Dubai, UAE.

More exciting announcements on further MTK Global gyms will be announced in the coming days.
