Sugar Hill Hails New Fury Boxing Gym

World-renowned trainer Sugar Hill Steward has compared Tyson Fury’s new state of the art boxing gym to the legendary Kronk Gym made famous by his uncle Manny Steward.

WBC heavyweight champion Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) has set up the new gym in Morecambe, with the superb facility offering the ‘Gypsy King’ the chance to train close to home.

Sugar Hill was the mastermind behind Fury’s incredible knockout win over Deontay Wilder earlier this year, and he’s been extremely impressed with what he’s seen at the gym after touching down in the UK.

Steward said: “I’m here in the UK to check out Tyson Fury’s beautiful new gym. You will be amazed at the way it’s set up.

“There are lots of vibrant action photos on the wall, and it’s just the way Manny would have had it done. It reminds me of his office that he had in Detroit in the 80s and 90s, so it’s a real touch of class.

There’s a huge portrait of the punch that Tyson landed on Deontay Wilder, and that’s the right hand that changed the world.”

Tyson’s father John Fury added: “Tyson’s new place is where it’s at. There is everything here. There’s the biggest punch bag I’ve ever seen in my life, and that’s what heavyweights use.

“There is all the artwork and memorabilia of the great nights of boxing, so it doesn’t get any better than this.”

MTK Global announce two new podcasts

MTK Global is delighted to announce details of two brand new innovative podcasts – giving fans the chance to get even closer to some of the best athletes from around the world.

MTK’s Inside Scoop with Colin Nathan will report on everything you need to know from the world of boxing, with a new episode released each Wednesday, while MTK’s The Clinch with Karl Keller will cover all things MMA, with a new episode each Monday.

They will be available on a wide range of platforms, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google, TuneIN, PocketCasts, Deezer, Breaker, Stitcher and Acast.

The podcasts will feature superstar guests each week, meaning listeners will get the opportunity to learn even more about the biggest names in boxing and MMA.

Nathan is the gym manager at MTK Africa and is regarded as one of the leading trainers in boxing, having achieved a number of incredible accolades, including guiding Moruti Mthalane to the IBF world flyweight title.

Keller is also a hugely-respected figure around the world, and was recently appointed as the new head of MTK MMA UAE, after a 15-year-long career which has seen him work with some of the key figures in MMA across the UFC, Bellator and Strikeforce.

The duo are extremely excited about the new groundbreaking podcasts, and can’t wait to give fans the interviews that they want to hear.

Host of MTK’s Inside Scoop Colin Nathan said: “I’ve always wanted to do something like this. My first career was in media as a television continuity presenter, boxing analyst and commentator, so this brings my other skills into play.

“Fans can expect exactly what the name of the show suggests, ‘The inside Scoop!’ I’ll be asking the hard questions that the fans want to know. Baring in mind that I am a trainer and manager, I want to go into that aspect of the interview at times too. I’m beyond excited.”

Host of MTK’s The Clinch Karl Keller said: “I have always wanted to get in the podcast game and I’m honoured to be selected by MTK to host ‘The Clinch.’ I’m excited to look behind the scenes and host some of MMA’s top athletes and key personalities.

“Our goal is to offer a platform for the fighters and personalities to tell us what they don’t get a chance to in pre and post fight interviews. This will be absolutely nothing like a press conference. We want to know who, not what. I don’t care what you did in your training camp, I care why you started your first ever training session, what drew you in and what keeps you going.”

Further news on the launch of the two new podcasts will be announced in due course.
