Taking a few moments out from training, Marianne said "I've had such a great month. July's been so good to me. Firstly I got a new trainer, the awesome Sharron Baker. Then Joe Jesus asked me to be sparring partner for Tina (Christina Leadbeater). I signed with new management last week and
now get on the card of what has to be the boxing event of the year, if not the decade."
On the fight itself Marianne added "It's such an honour to be involved, especially as Jarvis is clearly determined for it to be a showcase event. I don't know who my opponent will be yet, but am sure that whoever it is with it will be a great fight. To be honest, I'm so fired up. I wish it was sooner as I am virtually ready to go now thanks to the exceptional training sessions with Sharron, the regular workouts with Tyson (Jamaal 'Da Truth' Davis, Middleweight) and Dee (Dee 'Tiger' Moses, Middleweight) and of course the sparring sessions with Tina."
The Fight Night Productions 'Casino Battle Royale' in Atlantic City, announced earlier this week by Jarvis Robinson, will be the first in a series of high profile events. Las Vegas and Monte Carlo are the planned locations for further 'Casino Battle Royale' events in 2009.
