Friday, September 5, 2014, 15:09

Sport In Malta announced that it has entered into long term sponsorship agreements with local boxing fighter from Mosta, Mario ‘il-Gross’ Borg. Borg’s record stands at 1win 1 loss 1 draw and is ranked third in the Semi Pro National Rankings. He is trained by World Boxing Champion Super Steve Martin and Promoted by Demis Tonna.

Boxing is the fastest growing sport in the Malta, with world class organizations like the Prize Boxing Promotions, Vaughan Boxing & EBF Malta putting on sold out events around the island. We feel this is a great field to be involved in. To a fan, it’s just logos. It’s background scenery, hardly worth noticing. It’s a shirt some fighter wears to the ringside and then struggles to pull back on to his sweaty body in time for the announcement. To us it’s a sign of encouragement and belief an Individual’s ability to succeed and support his/her mission in the respective sport. For many fighters, sponsor money means everything. It’s the difference between prospering or just getting by!

“Mario is one of the hardest working young men I have ever seen. He is the first one in the gym in the morning and the last one to leave. He has become a role model for the youngsters” stated Marc James of Sport In Malta.
In his statement, Borg described the closeness of the organization’s values with his own as a factor in their partnership, mentioning that he plans to use this new opportunity to strengthen “Team Gross”.

We would like to congratulate both Team Gross and Marc James on their partnership. For further information visit “Mario Gross Borg” on Facebook Pages.
