MTK Marbella recently welcomed some special guests to the gym as the Spanish Amateur National Boxing Team visited the facility.
The Spanish team is full of talented amateurs boxing, and they were able to see first-hand the impressive surroundings on offer at the gym.
MTK Marbella Head Coach Albert Ayrapetyan & Gym Manager Pauline Thornton said: “We were honoured to host the Spanish National team here in MTK Marbella on Saturday.
It was our pleasure to have such a great squad of champions and to share the ring with our amateurs was an amazing experience for our fighters.
We look forward to working together with them for their future camps here in MTK Marbella, and hope that someday we will see some of our MTK Amateurs join the team.”
After the success of the first visit, Ayrapetyan and Thornton now plan on having further collaborations with the Spanish team.
They added: “It was their first visit, they came to check us out and if they like the gym, they plan to use us again. So we had a meeting and we think it will happen, a collaboration to train with us.”
