Tyson Fury To Unviel a New Bolton Gym on May 14th

Heavyweight boxing star Tyson Fury, along with trainer Peter Fury, undefeated cousin Hughie and other members of the Team Fury entourage will all be on hand to open their brand new Bolton boxing HQ on Wednesday May 14.

Developed in conjunction with the Platinum Sports and Events Management Company headed by Asif Vali, The Platinum Community Centre will boast state-of-the-art training facilities to help develop future amateur and pro champions.

“We’re really excited about getting this Team Fury gym up and running,” said Peter Fury recently.  “It’s been a lot of hard work in the making but we’re there now and the set-up is fantastic.  Tyson and the rest of the team will be based there and hopefully the gym will soon have its first world champ.”

Undefeated in 22 fights, with 16 KOs, Tyson is the former British and Commonwealth champion who faces Londoner Dereck Chisora at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena on July 26 – with the winner likely to face Wladmir Klitschko for world honours later in the year.

Along with the pros, the premises will also be the base for an exciting new amateur boxing club – Metro ABC – which will be run by renowned trainer Tommy Battle.  And the centre will also welcome all members of the local community to get involved and get fit.

“I’m delighted we’re ready to open the doors,” explained Asif.  “I’ve no doubt that Tyson and Hughie will be future heavyweight champions of the world, and it’s fantastic that Team Fury have located here.

“The centre is amazing and the facilities are first-class.  It’s been a lot of effort but all the hard work has been worth it and I know this gym will do some great work for the community, as well as produce numerous champions.

“The opening is going to be a very special day and it will be great to see as many people there as possible.”

The opening of the Platinum Community Centre (Halliwell Road, Bolton, BL1 8AP) will take place on Wednesday May 14 at 12.30pm.

Along with Team Fury, also in attendance will be the mayor of Bolton, as well as the Chief Superintendent of Greater Manchester Police Shaun Donnellan and Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, Jim Battle.
