Polish Amateur Marcin Marczak To Pro Debut In London On June 4th
Exciting Finchley based Polish Lightweight Marcin Marczak is set to professionally debut, at the Olivia Goodwin Main Events promoted ‘Search & Destroy’ double title headed event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, on Saturday, 4th June 2011, against Earl’s Court battler Bheki ‘Becks-Tiger’ Moyo.
A long time amateur boxer in his home country, Marcin moved to London five years ago to work as a personal trainer, as well as progress his amateur career. A fortunate move to City Boxer, a mainly White Collar Boxing club in Southwark, see Marcin’s boxing aspirations move forward apace, which in turn lead to him making the decision to move to the professional ranks.
Following a testing sparring session, at the TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, Marcin spoke briefly on his upcoming debut, “I’ve waited quite a long time for the fight, I’m not young, I’m twenty nine. It’s everything I’ve been working for and looking forward to my debut.
I started boxing as a junior in Poland. There are many Boxing clubs in the town I used to box, there’s good condition for boxing where I lived.
Five years ago I came to England and started Boxing for English clubs. Then I start working for a White Collar Boxing club, City Boxer club. Then they offered me a boxing match and they said about professional boxing so I said yes, why not.
Then I met Garry (Janes), he’s my trainer and then we start working harder and harder and then I said yes why not and that’s how it happen.
It’s up to me, it’s in my hands so I now boxing in June at York Hall. What can I do, I’m ready for that.”
Marcin’s coach Garry Janes then added, “He was due to fight in March, we started training really properly around Christmas. Had a really nice build up to the fight and was ready to go and unfortunately the fight didn’t happen, so we ticked over keeping him fit until we started building him up fro the June fight, so he’s super, super fit and ready to go.
Because he missed out on that fight we’re really keen for this fight.”
