MTK Global is proud to announce the signing of Qatar’s first ever Olympic boxer, Thulasi Tharumalingam.
‘TTT’ (4-0-KO2), who is currently based in Germany, competed at the Rio 2016 Games and has since racked up a quartet of impressive victories as a professional.
Tharumalingam said: “I’m pleased and proud to have signed for MTK Global. I was the first Qatari boxer at the Olympics and now I’m the first Qatari boxer to join the world’s leading management company.
“I hope to provide a figurehead for the growth of boxing in Qatar and my ultimate aim is to become a world champion. I proved I am capable of competing at the highest level as an amateur by reaching the Olympics and I want to do even better in the professional game.
“Now I am aligned with the best in boxing management, I can fully focus on becoming the best fighter I can be safe in the knowledge the business side of my career is taken care of. I’m determined to reach the top.”
MTK Global Head of Business Development Dr. Mirko Wolf added: “I’m delighted to welcome Thulasi to the team. I’ve watched his development for some time now and the first thing I noticed about him was that his style is more suited to the professional game than the amateur game.
“Being an Olympian, ‘TTT’ has already proven himself to be not just the better fighter out of Qatar but out of the whole Arab region.
“Tharumalingam has a multi-cultural background and that is something we actively support here at MTK Global, where equality and opportunity is for everyone.”
