MTK Scotland is Scotland’s biggest boxing gym, with x 2 competition sized boxing rings and more than 50 punch bags. MTK Scotland was previously known as the SK Boxing Gym and in 2015 rebranded as MTK Scotland, a division of MTK Global. The relationship between the MTK Scotland and MTK Marbella gyms stems from Sam Kynoch (founder of the SK Boxing Gym) taking a team of boxers over to the Marbella gym for a training camp. The Scottish boxers were the first team to undertake a camp at the Marbella gym. Following subsequent trips a deal was struck which saw the Scottish and Spanish gyms join forces. MTK Promotions Scotland was also formed – a professional boxing events company, based in the MTK Scotland Gym, which promotes regular boxing events in Scotland.
