MTK Global have marked International Women’s Day by announcing agreements with female boxers Sylvia ‘High Tower’ Scharper and Roseanna Cox.
Promising Australian Scharper recently recorded a stunning fifth-round stoppage of Rungnapha Kaewkrachang to claim the WIBA world super-flyweight title and announce herself as a leading force in the division.
With the city of Melbourne behind her, Scharper is eager to build on her current record of 8-1-2-KO2 and is delighted to have signed for MTK Global.
Scharper said: “I’m really thrilled to sign. I’m already the WIBA world champion and I’m only just getting started so watch this space.”
Cox competed for New Zealand as the country’s No. 1 middleweight – making the World Championships in 2014 – before winning the English Novices title in 2016 and going on to represent England the following year.
Based in the UK for the foreseeable future, Cox is now 24 and seems sure to add to her impressive amateur achievements when she turns professional.
Cox said: “I’m excited to announce that when I turn professional, MTK Global will be guiding my career. It’s a management team to match my ambition and I’m determined to continue to build my name in the sport of boxing.”
MTK Global CEO Sandra Vaughan is looking forward to witnessing two exciting careers unfold.
Vaughan added: “It’s fantastic to have brought two female fighters to our team. Interest in the women’s side of boxing is growing every single day and we are delighted to welcome two of its future stars in Roseanna and Sylvia.”
