Mark 'The Flash' Alexander Inks Promotional Deal With Dave Murphy

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
Featuring
Mark 'The Flash' Alexander  Vs  Rockin' Robin Deakin
25th October 2014 @ York Hall, Bethnal Green, London

By  Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro

London - Monday, 8th September 2014
Mark ‘The Flash’ Alexander has signed a promotional deal with Dave Murphy’s Acourtier Events organisation. On signing it was announced that the Finsbury Park Light Welterweight will make his maiden outing under the Acourtier Events banner on October 25th at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on the undercard of Marston - Gulyas MBC International Championship bout.

Alexander, who turned pro in 2001, was a regular on the UK scene until 2010, after which he relocated to America to train with legendary coach Emmanuel Steward at his world famous Kronk Gym in Detroit.
 
Whilst under Emmanuel Steward’s charge Alexander fought just the once, losing on points to Jersey City’s Michael Torres in a Championship bout, for the vacant USA New Jersey State Light Welterweight title.
 
Following Emmanuel Steward’s death, Alexander returned to the UK for a while before relocating to Philadelphia to link up with another top American coach, Percy ‘Buster’ Custus, at the James Shuler Memorial Gym in West Philadelphia.
 
Earlier this year Alexander returned to the UK, but with so few offers of fights on the table he once again began considering returning to America, that was until a friend suggested contacting Acourtier Events head honcho Dave Murphy and as they say the rest is history.
 
Following inking the deal with ‘The Flash’ Dave Murphy said. “Yeah, I’m really pleased to sign Mark, he’s another promising fighter that hasn’t really had any breaks, so really pleased to give him the chance he deserves.
 
He’s been messed about since his return from America, loads of promises but nothing really happening for him, so really pleased to help get his career back on track.
 
Mark’s just got his Malta Boxing Commission license and is set to fight on our London shows.
 
He’ll have his first fight, under the Acourtier Events banner, on the MBC sanctioned CAPITAL PUNISHMENT at York Hall on the 25th October, he’ll be fighting a tried and tested fighter, Robin Deakin.
 
I’m really looking forward to the fight, there’s some ‘history’ between these two, so I’m sure we are going to see a real cracking fight from them on the night.”
 
A clearly pleased Alexander, who had sat smiling throughout as Dave Murphy spoke, then added, “Yes I have, I’ve just signed with Dave to fight on his British MBC sanctioned shows, starting on October 25th at the York Hall.
 
I’m really looking forward to it, you know it was 2010 since I last fought at York Hall, can’t believe how long it’s been.
 
I’ve been over in America, I was close to getting a contract and fight out of Detroit, but that all fell apart when Emmanuel Steward died.
 
When he died, everything just stopped, so I came back to the UK to rethink what I wanted to do, at the time I really wanted to fight in America, so I went back out, this time to Philadelphia.
 
I met up with a very good training team, headed up by ‘Buster’ Custus at the James Shuler Memorial Gym, it was great, great gym, great training, everything seemed to be back on track again.
 
Too good maybe, whilst at Shulers I was offered a deal over there, basically I was offered the full deal, I mean everything, but it soon became clear that it wasn’t what it seemed, not just terms wise, but they wanted to control every aspect, including who trains me.
 
I went back to Buster, who kindly offered to get me some fights after that deal fell through.
 
Back to now though, I’ve been training and sparring with quality guys, on both sides of the Atlantic, I’m back in London now and I need to move on, hopefully get to fight for some titles.
 
I met with Dave a couple of months ago, he told me about what he is doing, I wasn’t too sure if it was for me at first, so I took a little time and watched what was happening on the British scene.
 
The board (BBBofC) were being typically awkward and to add insult to injury the only potential offers I was getting from any promoter was a ‘perhaps’ for a spot on Prizefighter, when and if it happens at my weight next, not exactly great for myself or my career.
 
I want to fight regularly, so after seeing more and more Malta Boxing Commission sanctioned shows in the UK I thought to myself, yeah let’s go with the MBC, the future looks bright there.
 
So I called Dave back, had another meeting, told him I liked what I see with the MBC and his shows, so here I am now, signed to Dave and more importantly fighting on October 25th.”
 
Mark ‘The Flash’ Alexander vs Rockin’ Robin Deakin features on the undercard of the Marston - Gulyas MBC International title clash, takes place on the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted CAPITAL PUNISHMENT mega event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, on Saturday, 25th October 2014.
