Masa Bacanov – I’m Coming To London To Win On October 4th

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Masa Bacanov is set to make her first competitive visit to the UK next week, when she takes on British prospect Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston, on the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS mega event, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Friday 4th October 2013.

Whilst relatively new to pro boxing, twenty year old Masa is far better known within the world of kickboxing, having fought regularly in the discipline, including major international competitions, both as a junior and senior, since 2009.

Her extensive martial arts experience has clearly aided Masa in her pugilistic aspirations, in her last pro boxing outing,
Masa was involved in an all out war, with fellow countrywoman, Maja Jahic, after four sensational action filled rounds referee Ismail Bosnjak just couldn’t split the two warriors, instead opting to score the storming battle a draw.

Speaking from her home Masa made it crystal clear that she wasn’t coming to England to just make up the numbers, as she said.

“I’m coming to London to win, I don’t know any other way.

I’m looking forward to fighting in England, I’ve fought a lot in international competitions, fighting in other countries is OK for me.

I will be stronger fighting at Super Bantamweight, I will have the advantage, Marianne is a natural Super Bantamweight, but I will bring my power.

I’ve watched Marianne fight, it will be a very good fight, I am confident I will win our fight.”

Marianne Marston versus Masa Bacanov, will feature on the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events promoted ‘NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS’ event, headlined by Michel Trabant vs TBA and Jennifer Retzke versus Angel McKenzie World title clashes, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Friday, 4th October 2013
