Jack Marshman to defend British Title

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi All,

    Pte Jack Marshman, 3 Para, is set to defend his Lonsdale British Middleweight Title at BAMMA 8 on 10th December at the Capital FM Arena, Nottingham. Yound prospect Leeroy Barnes is aiming to take Jack's title away from him but Jack is not going to let anyone take the belt from his grasp after he should amazing grit and determination when he won the inaugural title fight against Carl Noon in September.

    Jack reports that his in the best shape he's ever been, fitter and wiser after taking the pounding of a lifetime in Round 1 last time out, but fighting back to TKO Noon in the 3rd round of what was by far the Fight of the Night. So if you want to see explosive MMA, you'll have to get you and your mates to Nottingham in 2 weeks time to see who comes out on top of what should be on hell of a fight.

    If you haven't already done so, go to Other - Tickets For Troopsand register for tickets, there are just a few left for those currently serving or who have been medically discharged recently. Alternatively, go to BAMMA Tickets - MMA Tickets - National Indoor Arena, Birmingham or Capital FM Arena Nottingham - Bamma 8 for tickets, priced from £25 to £150 for the full on VIP package with ringside seats and the after show party.

    Sadly this one isn't going to be on BFBS, so I hope loads of you can get to the live event and cheer for Jack, as well as enjoying 12 other top class MMA fights across the night. Doors open at 1545hrs, first fight approx. 1615hrs and we close on the event at 2300hrs, before sinking a shed of load of wets!!

    All the best,

    St.Ledger

  2. Best of luck to Jack (he's in 3 not 2 Para btw)
     
  3. Duly amended Dollsteeth, many thanks, it's been a long day!! Spread the word and I've now attached the event poster for everyone to distribute.
     
  4. Hope he gives the **** a shoeing, tickets are reasonably priced too, good luck lad.
     
  5. Just got my tickets :) sweet....

    Randy Couture will also be for a book signing along. Other fighters include Paul McVeigh and Jimmy Wallhead, two of the greatest talents on the UK/European MMA circuits. Should be an awesome night of fights.
     
  6. Update - Jack has some great tickets still available at £35 each. They are for the lower tier seating, which have a great view of the ring. He says that anyone on the ARRSE forum is welcome to give him a call on 07772593384 if you'd like to buy some.

  8. Great fight, went the full 3 rounds. Leeroy was a game opponent and never gave up even though Jack stalked him for the full 15 mins. Tough fight and a definite contender for fight of the night. Well done Jack.

    On another note, I dont think the crowd realise he is not 2 Para? as the chants from his supporters were reminiscent of when Sandy fights anywhere "2, 2, 2 Para"

    A classy display of boxing and was more than willing to stand with the fans and have his picture taken and sign autographs for them, even if it was in front of the cage when people were trying to see the fight on going inside lol..
