KHK Sports and MTK Global will hold a groundbreaking boxing summit in the Kingdom of Bahrain in the autumn of 2020. The pioneering conference will see industry leaders unite in a desire to take the sport of boxing to the next level.

The unprecedented event will allow influential figures from all sides of the notoriously fragmented boxing world to sit down and discuss collaborating on projects which will grow boxing for the benefit of all. The historic meeting is a unique opportunity for leaders to pledge their support and help shape the future of the sport for years to come.

Following the boxing summit, Bahrain will host its first ever world title contest that will be broadcast live not only to the United States and the United Kingdom but around the world. These confirm that KHK Sports and MTK Global remain committed to the continued growth of the country as a world-renowned international sporting hub and that the entire Middle Eastern region is open for major combat sports’ events with the support of the two companies.


“Thanks to His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Global Boxing Summit is the start of a new era,” KHK Sports and KHK MMA CEO and BRAVE Combat Federation president Mohammed Shahid stated. “We are starting from where the boxing industry has stopped at today and taking it from there to new heights.”

“KHK Sports and MTK Global together will make this summit a historic night for Bahrain and the global boxing world,” Shahid continued. “We are very excited and honored to be part of this legacy.”

Both KHK Sports special advisor Daniel Kinahan and MTK Global president Bob Yalen are excited about the upcoming events. The former said, “For years, the thought of getting all the world leaders in boxing into one room together would have been dismissed as fantasy but the major players see the potential for growth within our industry and understand that the sky is the limit when different parties co-operate and collaborate.”

“This truly groundbreaking event will capture the attention of boxing fans across the world and have a generational impact on our sport,” Kinahan continued. “In doing so, it will realize a dream of His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa while leaving a legacy for Bahrain.”

Yalen described this as “a massive step in the right direction for the world of boxing.” He said that MTK Global is thrilled to play its role “in assisting His Highness Shaikh Khalid bin Hamad Al Khalifa and the team at KHK Sports in making this a reality.”

“MTK Global has always prided itself on its great working relationship with all the leading promoters, managers and leaders in the sport,” Yalen continued. “This neutrality and position of trust has allowed us to play our part in bringing traditional rivals together. This is huge and going to cause a wave of excitement in the sport.”
