Champ Rocky to Compete for WBU Jr. World Cruiser Weight Championship December 6, 2015

World Boxing Union [WBU] #1 ranked light heavyweight boxer Jehovah Rock Blackwell will battle Khalil Marsh for the WBU Jr. World Cruiser Weight Championship Sunday, December 6, 2015 at London’s York Hall.

Sanctioned courtesy of the Malta Boxing Commission (MBC), promoter Mark Lyons has joined forces with championship campaigning Marianne Marston to co-promote this major pre-Christmas event, aptly named LET BATTLE COMMENCE where three world titles will be decided.

On March 5, 2014 the WBU ranked Rock the #1 contender for the WBU America and WBU Intercontinental title. When he decided to turn professional, he left an incredible 156-28 amateur record behind him, which included winning the South Atlantic Championship. By constantly reinventing himself in the ring, Blackwell has become an extremely exciting fighter to watch.

Blackwell now has a sizable fan base attracted by his punching power and explosive speed. However, the adulation of his followers is not entirely based on his boxing ability. His good looks, charming smile, and gravitating personality are turning him into a boxing icon. The Baltimore native is a star on the rise, with the potential to become a marketing goldmine.

Blackwell’s bout will be televised to an audience of millions around the world through various TV channels such as Sky and Apple TV.

Doors open at 2:30pm, first fight starts at 3:30pm, tickets, priced £35 (standard seat) and £65 (ringside) are available at and
