Declan Geraghty moves away from MGM Marbella

Dublin super featherweight Declan Geraghty will have to hit the sunbeds in future if he is to recreate his Marbella tan. ‘Pretty Boy,’ one of the original MGM fighters, is relocating to chillier climes at the new MGM Manchester Gym.

MGM Manchester will be situated at Johnny Roye’s gym in Preston. Skillful southpaw Geraghty spent time with Roye, a former Muay Thai World champion, ahead of his fight last weekend at ‘Second Coming,’ and the Dubliner will now base himself in North West England full-time.

MGM’s newest venture will also be home to former IBF super feather champ Malcolm Klassen, as well as Tshifhiwa Munyai, Matty Clarkson, Liam Conroy, Ashley Peyton, and Michael Rombabeletsa.

The Irish-owned outfit will also look to promote shows in the area, a-la MGM Scotland.
