MTK Global has announced its partnership with Hrvatski Savez Profesionalnih Boksačkih Sportova (HSPBS) or the Croatia Professional Boxing Sports Federation. The latter has been primarily responsible for the rapid rise of boxing as a key area for combat sports in Croatia.
“We’re pleased to announce this new advisory agreement with the Croatia Professional Boxing Sports Federation,” MTK Global chief strategy officer Paul Gibson said. “Croatia has produced a large number of talented boxers in recent times and we’re confident that this new partnership will help them reach their full potential. It’s the first step in what is set to be an exciting few months for MTK Global in Croatia and we’re looking forward to working alongside the HSPBS to create the next huge boxing star from the region.”
Founded by Daniel Kinahan and Matthew Macklin in 2012, MTK Global is a boxing and MMA management and event promotions company. Its partnership with HSPBS is its latest innovative move after its recent partnership with Andre Rozier’s Havoc Management and Advisory in New York, United States and its launch of gyms in Miami, USA along with Leeds and the Lake District in the United Kingdom over the last few months.
“As the HSPBS president, I am honored to sign the exclusive partnership deal for Croatia with MTK Global, the leading worldwide management company,” HSPBS president Andrija Kevic said. “Despite hard times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this partnership means we are very positive and ready to turn another page in professional boxing history in Croatia. We have a team of world class professionals as well as very talented boxers who are looking for great opportunities, which such a partnership will provide.”
“This should open doors for our best professional boxers as well as promising prospects to show their quality and skills not just on co-promoted events in Croatia but also on the international scene through MTK Global and their wide partnership with world class promoters,” the HSPBS president added. “We hope to have some more great news soon and once again, we express our great satisfaction to become part of the MTK Global family.”
