London - Tuesday, 21st January 2014
Two World Boxing Union European Championship bouts head up Dave Murphy’s Acourtier Events latest offering WARZONE, which takes place at the York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 1st March 2014.
Headline fight of the night sees former WBO and IBF Inter-Continental Champion Mark Prince making a welcome return to Championship boxing, when he challenges a yet to be named opponent for the vacant WBU Europe Cruiserweight crown.
Prince, whose record stands at 21 fights, 20 wins, 16 by way of knockout and just the single loss, when he challenged then WBO Light Heavyweight King Dariusz Michalczewski for his coveted title.
Co-headline sees the UK's European #6 ranked Marianne Marston, take her first tilt at a major Championship honour, against the highly experienced Bulgarian #1 ranked Galina Gumliiska, for the WBU Europe Super Bantamweight title.
Heading up the undercard is big punching George 'Hit Hard' Hillyard, making his most welcome return to the pro ranks, in a six rounder against a yet to be named opponent.
After turning pro in 2005 George become one of the brightest young stars in the Matchroon Sport stable, however after his son Oscar was born partially blind, George found it hard to focus on his career, so in 2010 George decided to put his career on hold, in order to focus on providing the best care that he could for his son.
WBF Lightweight Champion Chris Goodwin makes a rare trip to the Capital City, to take part in a non-Championship six round bout, against a yet to be named opponent.
Also making the trip south from his Birmingham home is former England amateur captain Antonio Counihan, who will be making his second pro outing.
The highly entertaining ‘Rockin’ Robin Deakin will be back in action, this time as a ‘house’ fighter.
American Professional Basketball player Manny Muhammad is set to switch disciplines, when he dons boxing gloves and step into the square ring on March 1st.
WARZONE also features the professional debuts for former Amateur stars Suz Member, Nathan DeCastro and European Medalist Sarah Knight.
