Heavyweight Mark ‘Oaktree’ Brown has been
added to the card of the Fight Night Productions promoted ‘Casino Battle
Royale’ event which is to be held in Atlantic City, NJ later this year.
Fight Night Productions CEO, Jarvis Robinson, on making the announcement
said “I am so pleased to have Mark on the card. I think it was a forgone
conclusion he would be added after the magnificent show he put on at the
Salem fight back in June. I just couldn’t leave him out. He’s a true star.
He made that event a huge success and will help make the ‘Casino Battle
Royale’ an even bigger success.”
‘Oaktree’ will be looking to add to his already excellent 13 - 1, with six
by way of knockout, record after the disappointment of just a few weeks ago
when his opponent, Maurice Wheeler, failed to turn up for the weigh-in
prior to the ‘Battle on 422’ event.
Brown, who could barely hide his joy of being on the card, said “I couldn’t
have asked for a better birthday present. (His birthday is the16th August).
This is a big event. I will be up for it. I’m an entertainer, that’s what I
do. I fight and entertain. I’ll steal the show. Get me in the ring, don’t
care who with, I’ll beat them, cos that’s what I do and I do it with style.
You should call me the Entertainer.”
It is expected that further announcements will be made over the coming week
as negotiations with two current World Champions, a former World Champion
and two National Champions to head up the event are close to being
