Six Of The Best – Half Dozen TRAD TKO Boxers In Action At York Hall This Saturday

Boxing on CBSSix Of The Best – Half Dozen TRAD TKO Boxers In Action At York Hall This Saturday

With over forty pro boxers training at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, it should come as no surprise that some weekends there would be a number of their young stars in action, however this weekend it’s not the normal two or three, it’s six, what’s more they’re all fighting on the same event at York Hall on Saturday night.

The first TRAD TKO fighter to be in action on Saturday will be Hainult Cruiserweight Jerome Haywood, who will be making his professional debut against late replacement, Lithuania’s Rolandas Cesna.

Brian O’Shaughnessy trained Haywood will have some extra help in his corner, no less than former British and European Cruiserweight Champion Terry Dunstan, who has been on hand to advise, as well as spar, throughout the Essex Boy’s fight preparations.

Barry Smith trained Manny Muhammad will be looking to make it three wins out of three outings on Saturday.

Back in March, Harrow based Muhammad scored a superb points victory, over previously unbeaten Vaidas Balciauskas, this win shot him up into the top half of the World rankings – after just the one fight!
In August Muhammad increased his ranking positon with another excellent points victory, over Ernestas Dapkus.

Former Commonwealth Champion Mo Hussein has a growing stable of fighters under his control at the TRAD TKO, two of whom, brothers Onder and Siar Ozgul, will be in action at York Hall this Saturday.

Onder, who has been dubbed ‘Little Mike’ by Turkish boxing fans – due to his fighting style being similar to that of Iron Mike Tyson – will be making his third pro outing on Saturday.

On his debut Onder scored a shut out points victory over Dmitrij Kalinovskij, he followed this up a month later with a first round stoppage of Brighton’s Iain Jackson.

On Saturday Onder was due to face Matthew Pepper, but unfortunately Pepper had to pull out – due his father being hospitalized with a serious illness – so unbeaten Karel Horejsek stepped in at late notice.

Younger sibling Siar, who is currently 4-0 after top class points victories over Michal Vosyka, Chris Jenkinson, Tomas Samusas and William Wharburton – has also built up a strong following due to his all action boxing style.

On Saturday night young Siar will face Nottingham’s Matt Scriven.
The highly rated, former Team England Amateur Captain, Antonion Counihan steps up to his first six rounder, against seriously tough Lithuanian Simas Volosinas.

Antonio, who is trained by his father Paul, scored three sensational wins – over Robin Deakin, Marcin Ficner and Tibor Szucs – since turning pro just one year ago, two of these wins came by way of stoppage, Deakin and Szucs, the other by a shut out points decision.

Headlining the CAPITAL PUNISHMENT event is another TRAD TKO star – British #1 Ranked (both Super Bantamweight & Pound-4-Pound) female boxer – Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston.

Marston, who is trained by Brian O’Shaughnessy, will be challenging Hungarian #1, European #3 and World #31 ranked Marianna Gulyas for the MBC International Super Bantamweight Championship.

Marston may have a little extra pressure going into this title showdown, as news has just filtered through that should she win on Saturday that she will get to challenge for the WIBA World Super Bantamweight Championship, against current Champion Australia’s Shannon O’Connell, early in 2015.

TRAD TKO head honcho Johnny Eames was clearly pleased to have so many of his charges in action this Saturday, as he said.

“It’s good to have so many of the boys, and girl, out this weekend.

It just goes to show the depth of talent we have here at the TRAD TKO, on Saturday we’ll have one fighter, Jerome, debuting, Manny and Onder making their third pro outings, Siar in his final four rounder, this kid is more than ready to step up now, of course one of the boys is already stepping up, Antonio does his first six rounder on Saturday and to top it all our Marianne will be headlining the event and fighting for a title.

Should be a great night of boxing, hopefully all our boys will keep their unbeaten records and Marianne will bring the belt home to the gym.”

Tickets, priced £35 (Standard Seated) and £60 (Ringside) for the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, at York Hall in Bethnal Green on Saturday 25th October, are available direct from any of the boxers, at the TRAD TKO Gym, on-line at www.tkoboxoffice.com or call 07960 850645.

Rock With Punch – Trapt ‘Bring It’ For Golden Girl’s Oct 25th Title Fight Promo Video

MarianneMarstonWEBREADYRock With Punch – Trapt ‘Bring It’ For Golden Girl’s Oct 25th Title Fight Promo Video

Multi Platinum selling Californian Rock band TRAPT have collaborated with British Professional boxer Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston, to create a joint promotional video for both their November UK tour and Marianne’s upcoming Championship fight, that takes place at York Hall in London on October 25th.

The video features Trapt powering their way through the sensational ‘Bring It’, from their 2013 Reborn album, interlaced with action from Marianne’s previous title fight.

The unusual collaboration came about when Marianne contacted Trapt’s Chris Taylor Brown with a view to using ‘Bring It’, both for her upcoming fight promo video as well as her ring walk music on the night, Chris was more than happy to oblige, however he also hinted at something far removed from the standard boxing promo.

Sure enough Marianne loved the concept and on learning that Trapt were due to tour the UK, just a few weeks after her fight, suggested that the video could be used to promote the tour also, which peaked Chris’ interest.

Within days the band’s element of the video was sent to London, where footage of Marianne’s previous WBU European title fight against Hana Horacova was edited in to produce the promo video

TraptWEBREADYSpeaking from his home in California Chris said.

“Marianne is exactly the kind of competitor that “Bring It” talks about – Someone who is not afraid to show people that they will not be beaten.

As a huge fan of women’s boxing and boxing in general, it was an honor to have Marianne suggest coming together to make a new “Bring It” video to spread the word about her Oct 25 fight and Trapt’s upcoming UK Tour 16 Nov to 23 Nov!

The video is cut with footage of Marianne doing what she does best!”

Marston Suspends Title Fight Camp – For Charity Project, To Aid Ebola Sufferers in Africa.

MarianneMarston1292WEBREADYMarston Suspends Title Fight Camp – For Charity Project, To Aid Ebola Sufferers in Africa.

This coming Friday professional boxer Marianne Marston will be taking a day off from the training camp for her upcoming 25th October title fight, in order to take part in a project by Philanthropic artist Clare Newton for the Street Child Charity, that will raise much needed funds for Children in Sierra Leone and Liberia who are suffering due to the Ebola epidemic.

Clare previously photographed Marianne as part of her record breaking ‘Jump4London’ photographic project to celebrate the then impending London 2012 Olympics.

 

The Jump4London entered the record books as the biggest photo in the world following the installation of the largest, over a kilometer in length, composite photograph exhibition, consisting of 81,663 photographs, that was unveiled at the ExCel Arena on 1st June 2012.

 

Marianne clearly had an impact on Clare, as it was she that the Hackney based artist visualized as the Goddess Of Spring for her latest project, a giant montage, around fifty feet in height, which will feature Marianne and children from the Sarah Bonnell School in Stratford.

 

The giant image will then be auctioned at a Charity Gala event in November and the monies raised will provide the Street Child Charity with much need funding that will help children in Sierra Leone and Liberia who are suffering due to the outbreak of Ebola in those countries.

 

Following a training session, under the watchful eyes of her coach Brian O’Shaughnessy, at the TRAD TKO Gym in Canning Town, Marianne spoke of the upcoming photographic project she is to feature in.

 

“When I first got the call from Clare I was more than a bit hesitant, I mean I’m in the final weeks of my training camp for my title fight on October 25th, but after she explained that this was for the Street Children charity I jumped at the opportunity.

 

Hopefully this project will raise a large amount of money for the Street Child Charity, It’s a truly worthwhile charity that does wonderful work around the World helping children in need.

 

Children are the future, if there is any way we can help prevent suffering and unnecessary early mortality of young children we, all of us, should do something to help, so I am.

 

Holding a BSc (Hon) in Micro Biology I am aware of the levels of research, as well as the funding levels that are required to undertake the necessary research into the Ebola virus

 

Companies like America’s GeoVax Laboratories are already working on two vaccines, but this research will take a couple of years at least and unless there is enough funding even longer.

 

GeoVax are developing a vaccine against the ZEBOV strain of Ebola, which is responsible for the current outbreak, as well as another is being developed as a future routine immunisation to protect against the three known fatal strains of Ebola.

 

Hopefully Clare’s latest project will go some way to helping the Street Child Charity as well as raise awareness of the need to make enough funding available to companies like GeoVax.”

ABOUT STREET CHILD

 

Street Child is a UK charity, established in 2008, that aims to create educational opportunity for some of the most vulnerable children in West Africa.

 

Starting in Sierra Leone, then the poorest country in the world, Street Child have supported over 20,000 urban and rural children to access a quality education.

 

Street Child’s principal focus is upon empowering children by giving them the chance to go to school and giving their families the wherewithal to keep them there.

 

There have already been thousands of cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia, the two principal nations in which we work.

 

The governments of both nations have declared a State of National Emergency and are working towards containing the spread the disease within what is already a low capacity and culturally complex environment; their efforts are increasingly in desperate need of support.

 

Street Child’s actions have two key strands:

 

1. Humanitarian Response

Street Child are supporting the day-to-day, essential human needs of individuals and households whose lives and livelihoods have been terribly affected: either by Ebola itself; or by the effect of dramatic quarantine and other anti-Ebola measures and consequences. Typical support is through provisions as basic as dry rations and water.

The help that government and other international organisations and charities are providing is simply not enough to help all those that need it. The additional help Street Child provides is a vital lifeline for those receiving it.

  1. Raising Awareness

Ebola is entering and progressing in vulnerable communities through lack of information and non-acceptance of the basic facts about the virus and how to protect oneself from it. There is an urgent need for these vital messages to be spread.

In Sierra Leone, Street Child has a unique national presence, with active teams in nearly every major town as well as in many of the most remote parts of the country. This broad network gives Street Child the opportunity to reach, with the vital messages needed, many disparate high risk communities.

In Liberia, Street Child presence in West Point, one of the most affected parts of the capital, and in other parts of Monrovia, also provides a real opportunity to support the national awareness-raising effort.

As well as key information and advice on basic hygiene practices, Street Child is providing buckets, soap and chlorine to actually enable communities to take positive steps to increase hygiene and reduce prospects for the spread of the virus in their area.

Whilst the Street Child ongoing efforts are already helping to raise awareness in vulnerable areas, there is vital need across the board for this activity not to just to continue but to be scaled urgently; Street Child believe this is one of the keys to containing the spread of Ebola.

‘Little Mike’ to Face Matthew Pepper On Oct 25th

OnderOzgul4318WEBREADY‘Little Mike’ to Face Matthew Pepper On Oct 25th

Hackney based Turkish Light Heavyweight prospect, Onder ‘Little Mike’ Ozgul is set to face Scunthorpe’s Matthew Pepper, on the Dave Murphy Acourtier events promoted CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, which takes place at the York Hall in Bethnal green, London on Saturday 25th October 2014.

A former Amateur and IABA World Series Of Boxing star Onder has made quite an impact since turning pro in March this year.

On his pro debut, Onder scored a shut out points victory over Lithuania’s Dmitrij Kalinovskij, he then followed this up just six weeks later with a first round stoppage win over Brighton’s Iain Jackson, who he had sent to the canvas twice before the fight was stopped mid way through the final minute of round by referee Ian John-Lewis.

These wins wouldn’t come as a surprise to his many fans back in his homeland – as it was they who gave him the nickname ‘Little Mike’, due to his style being so similar to that of legendary ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson.

His opponent on the 25th October, Matthew Pepper, may be more experienced, having fought ten times previously, but that doesn’t seem to bother Onder one iota, as he made clear when he spoke following a training session with his coach, former Commonwealth Lightweight Champion Mo Hussein at the TRAD TKO Gym in Canning Town.

“I’m really looking forward to fighting again, it’s been longer between fights than I want, so can’t wait.

I don’t know my opponent, no disrespect intended but I don’t care who I am fighting, just that I am fighting and winning.

I came to this Country with one intention, to be a World Champion, that is my goal, that is why I am here at the TRAD TKO.

Training has been going very well, under the tuition of Mo Hussein, he’s an excellent trainer, he trains my brother (Siar) also.

We have great training and sparring sessions at the TRAD TKO and it’s going well so far.

I’ve been sparring Manny Muhammad, who’s also fighting on the 25th October show, as well as TRAD TKO gym mates Amro Ezzat, Festim Lama and of course Siar.

I want to say thank you to the fans that come and support me and Siar, we really appreciate your support, we wouldn’t be able to achieve our dream without you, Thank you.”

Teen Sensation Siar Ozgul Faces ‘Old Master’ Matt Scriven on Oct 25th

SiarOzgul3031WEBREADYTeen Sensation Siar Ozgul Faces ‘Old Master’ Matt Scriven on Oct 25th

Unbeaten Light Middleweight teen sensation Siar Ozgul is set for a tough test later this month, when he takes on Nottingham’s hugely experienced Matt ‘Scriv’ Scriven on the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted CAPITAL PUNISHMENT mega event at York Hall on Saturday 25th October 2014.

Whilst still a novice as a pro, Hackney based Siar fought over eighty times as an amateur in Turkey, during which time he not only represented his homeland in various international competitions, but was also crowned Junior Turkish Champion.

Since turning pro almost one year ago to the day, the battling Turk has racked up four top class points victories, over Michal Voska, Chris Jenkinson, Tomas Samusas and most recently William Warburton.

Young Siar’s opponent Matt Scriven is highly experienced, having fought one hundred times during his seven year professional career, many of these against such esteemed opposition as fellow TRAD TKO trained WBO International, European, Commonwealth and British Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders, WBI Inter-Continental and British Light Middleweight Champion Brian Rose, IBO and GBC and British Champion Ashley Theophane amongst others.

Matt Scriven is also an experienced domestic championship boxer, having fought twice for the BBBofC Midland Area title, securing it on his second attempt, as well as winning the vacant British Masters Light Middleweight title, which he successfully defended against Wayne Shepherd before losing the crown, by disqualification, to Lee Murtagh.

Taking on such an experienced boxer on only his fifth professional outing doesn’t seem to worry Siar one iota, as he made clear when he spoke after a training session at the TRAD TKO Gym, under the watchful eyes of his coach, former Commonwealth Lightweight Champion Mo Hussein.

“I will fight anyone, he fought a lot, yes, but no worry for me.

After the fight I want to fight more rounds, I want to be the Champion soon, I need to fight six rounds after this fight.

My ambition is a lot higher, I was Junior Champion as an amateur, I aim to be World Champion as a pro, soon.

I have the best trainer, Mo Hussein, prepare me for the fight, training is very good, sparring is very good, sparring Festim Lama, he’s tough, good hard sparring.

I’m ready to fight now, can’t wait for October 25th and win number five.”
