MTK Global has partnered with world-renowned global specialists Remote Trauma to provide extensive COVID-19 testing for the upcoming MTK Fight Night events throughout the summer.


The cards will take place on Wednesday 12 August, Wednesday 26 August and Wednesday 2 September, and will be heavily monitored by Remote Trauma’s Covid Media Solutions (CMS).

Remote Trauma are experts in safety and health risk management, having previously worked with leading broadcasters such as BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5.

The CMS service devises and delivers innovative, robust safety processes, enabling promotions to responsibly re-commence events, whilst minimizing the risk of coronavirus contraction and transmission.

The CMS specialist team includes experienced scientists, doctors, nurses, paramedics and professional safety advisors. Every one of these individuals has worked on the frontline during the national emergency and have acquired significant hands-on experience in dealing with coronavirus.

MTK Chief Strategy Officer Paul Gibson said: “The health and safety of the fighters and everyone else involved is always our top priority when staging live boxing events. But the current pandemic conditions have posed many new and unfamiliar challenges so we’re delighted to partner with Remote Trauma and benefit from their experience and expertise.”

Remote Trauma’s Specialist Nurse Leonie Monet added: “We’re proud to be teaming with MTK Global to help keep their events safe. CMS has been instrumental in getting TV production back up and running over the last few months, and we’re pleased to now bring that knowledge to these shows.

“Our team of specialists are experts in the field, and we know that testing is absolutely the only way forward to ensure that the safety of everyone is adhered to.”

The upcoming MTK Fight Night events will be held at the LS-Live in Wakefield, and will be broadcast live in the US on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank and worldwide on IFL TV.

It gets underway on Wednesday 12 August, as Jono Carroll takes on Maxi Hughes, Sean McComb goes up against Siar Ozgul, Craig MacIntyre faces Ishmael Ellis, Sahir Iqbal, and Maredudd Thomas meet for the WBC Youth title, and Pierce O’Leary returns.

It kicks off a brilliant run of #MTKFightNight events throughout the summer, with the likes of Lewis Crocker, Lee McGregor, Gary Cully, Akeem Ennis Brown, Dan Azeez and more all in action over the coming months.
