British boxing star Amir Khan will be in Dubai on Monday December 30 to open a new fitness centre at Sunset Mall. And you can be there, too.

The former unified light-welterweight world champion will be the star turn at the official launch of EMD Fitness.

“I’m looking forward to my visit to Dubai for the official opening of EMD Fitness,” he said. “It’s an area of the world I love. I have always wanted to try and do my part to help boxing grow in this region because I believe there is so much potential in Dubai and the Middle East.

“Boxing is a great sport which helps to teach discipline, keep people off the street and just help with general fitness. I can’t wait to see and test the facilities at EMD Fitness because I have heard many good things about it.”

The new centre, which is the brainchild of the UAE’s leading professional boxer Eisa Al Dah, is spread over 15,000 square feet and provides stunning panoramic views of Jumeirah Beach.

Speaking about the launch event, Al Dah, said: “It’s great to have these two superstars of boxing visit our excellent new facilities. We firmly believe that EMD Fitness is already Dubai’s premier venue for boxing, MMA and general fitness training. The staff, services and equipment at our disposal is immense and second to none.

“The fact we are able to attract leading names such as Amir Khan, with whom I have a tremendous relationship, goes to show that we have so much to offer. I’m sure Amir will be left very impressed with the facilities and our overall philosophy at EMD Fitness.”

The special event, which takes place on December 30 at 6pm, is open to gym members only. For more information on how to sign-up to EMD Fitness, which is sitated at Sunset Mall, Jumeirah 3, visit
