WBU International Light Welterweight Champion Steve Martin and London based Marianne Marston co-headline a night of boxing at the Dolmen Hotel and Spa Resort in Bugibba, Malta on Friday, August 30th.
Martin, who won the WBU title back in December with a shutout points win over Germany’s Sabri Ulas Goecman, will be making his second outing in just six weeks, having beaten Bosnia’s Adnan Zilic via third round tko at the Montekristo Estate back on the 12thJuly.
On August 30th Martin will be up against Bosnia’s Jasmin Vrskic, who will be making his return to the pro boxing ranks following three years competing in the World Kickboxing series.
Martin, who like his co-headliner Marianne Marston, is coached by Barry Smith will be looking to get another solid win under his belt ahead of his scheduled WBU title defence at the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted ‘Night Of Champions’ mega event at the York Hall in London on Friday 4th October.
Woolwich, London based Marston became the first professionally licensed female boxer by the Malta Boxing Commission in August 2011.
Back in April Marston scored a first round stoppage win over Hungarian No.1 ranked Gabriella Roman, at the York Hall in London.
Marston will also be looking for a good result, against Bosnia’s Masa Bacanov, on the 30th August, as she too will be competing on the fourteen bout card at the ‘Night of Champions’ event in London on the 4th October.
Both Martin and Marston’s professional bouts will be sanctioned by the Malta Boxing Commission, with the twenty fight semi-professional undercard being sanctioned by the IBA. at
