Marston-Cooper Put Back to December, Setterfield-Scriven Replaces On Sept 11th Card

The eagerly awaited British debut of Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston, against Lana Cooper, which was set to be at the Steve Goodwin promoted double title ‘It’s Personal’ event at York Hall on Saturday 11th September, has been rescheduled to Saturday 4th December. Replacing Marston-Cooper on Saturday will be ‘Dynamo’ Daryl Setterfield versus Matt Scriven.

Speaking late last week Marston, the protégé of legendary Heavyweight Champion of the World Smokin’ Joe Frazier, said “I’m hugely disappointed, I’m one hundred percent fight ready, then this happens..

The work I’ve done with Derek (trainer Derek Grainger) has been awesome, he really knows how to get the best from me, and I‘ve had great sparring too. It’s such a shame.

It’s going to be such a great night as well. There’s six TKO fighters on the card. Not only would I have had huge support from my fans but also from the boys and their fans. I’m going, It’s going to be a great night, even though I’m not fighting.

I can’t thank Steve (promoter Steve Goodwin) and Johnny (manager Johnny Eames) enough for sorting out a new date for my fight with Lana so quickly.

I’m really disappointed not to be fighting on the eleventh but am already focusing on December 4th. I’m going to back down my training for a few weeks and then start a full six week camp again in October. ”

Marston’s loss became one of her Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym stable mates gain, as manager Johnny Eames reacted swiftly to the news to negotiate the vacant spot on the show for his exciting Light Middleweight charge ‘Dynamo’ Daryl Setterfield.

Setterfield, who back in March caused a sensation by knocking out the highly rated, and previously unbeaten prospect, Darren Hamilton, spoke briefly on his upcoming showdown with the highly experienced Matt Scriven, “I feel sorry for Marianne, she’s a good little fighter and trains hard, but I’ll take whatever comes my way.

Yeah, it’s gonna be a good fight, Matt’s had 78 fights and he’s a tough fighter. He’s had a lot of experience and that. I think if I play my cards right and do the right things I think I should get the win.

I don’t think this ones going to go like the one against Darren (Hamilton). I think I’m going to have to box clever in this one as Matt’s so experienced. He’s not gonna leave anything open for me to get a big right hand over the top like Darren. Obviously if the opportunity to do something like that comes I’ll take it, that’s the sort of fighter I am, you know.

I don’t think it’s going to go that way this one. I think it’s going to be a four round tactical fight. I’ll fight smart and be sharp on my feet. I’ll be looking to plant the shots and keep on my toes, keep moving, keep him thinking.

I know the fight came at short notice but I’m ready and am confident I’ll take the win on the night”

Ultrachem TKO’s ‘Super Six’ In Action September 11th At York Hall

Johnny Eames and Derek Grainger’s famous London ‘Fight Factory’, the Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym, is set to start the new boxing season with a bang, having no less than six of their boxers in action this coming Saturday at Steve Goodwin’s ‘It’s Personal’ title double header event, at The York Hall, Bethnal Green in East London.

Heading up the list of fighters, on the ‘It’s Personal’ show, that are trained at Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym, are co-headliners Mark ‘The Flash’ Alexander and ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese, who are both challenging for championship honours - Alexander for the vacant International Masters Lightweight and McAleese for the vacant British Masters Light Middleweight titles.

Alexander, who is trained at the Canning Town gym by Barry Smith, will be facing a stern test as he locks horns with former English Super Featherweight Champion Ryan Barrett, who in the past has battled it out with World Champions Amir Khan and Willie Limond.

Alexander, who has also been in action with top class opposition such as IBO & WBF Featherweight World Champion Michael Brodie, British & Commonwealth Featherweight Champion John Simpson and British Featherweight Champion Dazzo Williams, rocketed stole the headlines, back in April, with his clinical destruction of, the man being touted as the ‘New Ricky Hatton’, Michael ‘Simply’ Devine, which was Alexander’s first fight since switching his training base to Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym and taking Smith on board as coach.

Ever since the fight was announced there has been a series of vitriolic comments, from both protagonists, in the press. Even the event title ‘It’s Personal’ is directly related to the intent dislike Alexander and Barrett have for each other. Alexander’s seem to come from Barrett avoiding a proposed fight back in June, whilst Barrett’s clearly stems from the very public calling out, by Alexander, on Steve Bunce’s BBC radio show.

Co-headline features gym mate ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese, who claims the event title ‘It’s Personal’ also directly relates to his fight with old foe Lee Noble.

The only blemish on McAleese’s otherwise perfect record came when the pair faced each other, on the Ricky Hatton promoted show at Goresbrook Leisure Centre in Dagenham, back on the 26th March.

McAleese, who by his own admission was not at his best that night having fought just thirteen days previous, was sent reeling when the referee Richie Davies scored the contest a 58-58 points draw.

Following the surprise result McAleese said, "A lot of people in the crowd gave me five out of the six rounds, and I thought I won four out of the six, and drew the last, if not winning it." then adding, “I'll hopefully get a rematch and set the record straight.”

McAleese has got his wish, and a title shot to boot, and has full intention to set the record straight. So much so that last week, in order to ensure the were no disturbances to his fight preparations, McAleese left his Newmarket home and moved to London for a two week training camp with co-trainers Johnny Eames and Derek Grainger.

Whilst in camp McAleese has been getting top class sparring with Eddie Corcoran, Nathan Weise and the highly exciting Light Middleweight prospect Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng.

Ochieng, who is managed and trained by Brian Lawrence at the Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym, is also in action at York Hall on the 11th September and will be facing the highly experienced Latvian Alex “Pit Bull” Spitko. In sparring Ochieng has been looking seriously sharp and is rightly confident, of adding Spitko’s scalp to his growing collection, following his victory excellent victory over Curtis Valentine in ‘The Battle of the Undefeated’ back in May.

Another rising star, from the Ultrachem TKO stable, who will be participating on the ‘It’s Personal’ show is Belvedere’s exceptional Featherweight talent ‘Saint’ George Jupp.

Back in May this year, at the ‘Oakey’s Last Stand’ event at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth,19 year old Jupp put on a superb boxing display to secure victory, over the very tough Peter Barney, by a 40-37 points margin.

On the 11th September ‘Saint’ George will be facing another tough challenge as his opponent is the Latvian hardman Pavels Senkovs.

Disappointingly, the eagerly awaited debut of Ultrachem TKO’s highly talented female fighter Marianne ‘Golden Girl’ Marston has had to be rescheduled to later this year.

Marston, who was discovered by the legendary Heavyweight Champion of the World Smokin’ Joe Frazier, had been due to face the experienced Welsh battler Lana Cooper. It is expected that Marston vs Cooper will now be supporting Yassine El Maachi’s WBC title challenge on the Goodwin Promotions December 4th show at York Hall.

On receiving the news of the fight being off Marston’s ever sharp manager, Johnny Eames, swiftly negotiated for another his fighters, Redhill, Surrey’s ‘Dynamo’ Daryl Setterfield, to replace her on the show.

Back in March Setterfield caused a sensation when he knocked out Light Welterweight prospect Darren Hamilton. Setterfield was undoubtedly the underdog as Hamilton had rightly been touted as a future star of the division.

The climax to the exciting battle was nothing short of spectacular. Setterfield let rip with the most vicious overhand right to the head, which literally stopped the previously unbeaten Hamilton in his tracks, followed up with a lightning fast combination that sent Hamilton crashing so hard to the canvas that the paramedics were immediately called for.

On September 11th Setterfield will be up against Nottingham’s highly experienced Matt Scriven.

Johnny Eames and the Ultrachem TKO Boxing Gym team have a proud history of training Championship winning fighters, one of their many stars was WBU Light Heavyweight Champion Tony ‘Oakey Kokey’ Oakey, who retired back in May.

Whilst not returning to the ring, Tony Oakey will be at York Hall on September 11th in the role of mentor to Portsmouth’s Joel ‘El Toro’ McIntyre, who will be debuting against the experienced Jamie Ambler from Aberystwyth.

‘It’s Personal’, at York Hall on September 11th, also features Light Middleweight prospect, Michael Norgrove, also looks to extend his perfect record. Norgrove, whose record ot 2-0, has his hardest test to date when he faces Finchley’s Ian Eldridge.

Unbeaten prospect Tony "The Conqueror" Conquest is set to face one of the most experienced Cruserweight’s around, Hastings Rasani, who has fought the best the division has offered over the years, David ‘Hayemaker’ Haye, Troy Ross, Bruce ‘Lionheart’ Scott, Terry Dunston, Mark Krence, Tony Bellew, Dean Francis... and the list just goes on. This is no easy fight for Conquest, who will need to be right on his game.

Super Middleweight Eder Kurti will be looking to maintain his six fight winning streak against Sabie Monteith.

Bethnal Green’s highly popular Light Welterweight Jamie Arlain is set to explode on the professional scene. Arlain will be facing Bulgarian Danny Dontchev.

Exciting Welterweight prospect Phil Gill aka "The Phil Gill Experience" looks to continue his unbeaten record against the experienced Sid Razak.
