Sarah Knight To Make her Pro Debut

(JAN 26) Promoter Dave Murphy today announced that he has signed former amateur European Union Bronze medalist Sarah Knight to his ever growing stable of boxers.

Mr. Murphy also took the opportunity to announce that Sarah will be making her professional debut on the upcoming Acourtier Events promoted WARZONE event at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Saturday March 1st.

New Malden based Sarah, who boxed as an amateur under her maiden name Sarah Alderman, has racked up numerous accolades during her stellar career, including winning the English ABAs in 2007.

However the pinnacle of her career came in 2008, when she was selected to represent Scotland at the European Union Championships. Just representing Scotland was a major achievement, but young Sarah went a step further and secured the Bronze medal in the 86kg division.

Following signing management papers with Mr. Murphy, Sarah said.

ďExciting times, to be able to box professionally is a dream come true.

I often thought about switching to the pros, but there just didnít seem to be any opportunities here in the UK, thanks to Dave Murphy I can finally make the switch.

Iím really looking forward to making my professional debut on March 1st, to be part of such an exciting card on my pro debut makes it even more special.

Itís been a while since I boxed competitively, but weíve been busy in the gym changing my style, from amateur to a pro style, so the transition shouldnít be a problem.

Iíve been preparing at Fight Knights gym in New Malden, where we started my hard training on the first, had a couple of hard spars this week, as time goes on weíll get to the harder full on sparring.

Iíve mainly been sparring guys to prepare, although did spar Sonya Lamonakis, which was a very good experience, as she was the World ranked #1 at the time.

She came over from America, not just to spar with me obviously, we done a few rounds, it was a very good experience for me, as then she was the top girl at my weight.

To be honest it was sparring Sonya that made up my mind to try and make the move to the pro ranks, after sparring her I thought I can do this, oh and she has already asked to fight me after Iíve had a few fights.

The main problem is it just doesnít seem to be many women coming into the sport, which surprised me after the Olympics, I think thatís because there hasnít been much support for us, as there is for the guys.

I trained with Nicky (Adams) and Savannah (Marshall) in the England camps, so I would like to think more of the girls will turn pro eventually, although I think it will take some time really.

So I really am one of the lucky ones, by actually be able to consider turning professional, as I know Dave, he has always been a big supporter of womenís boxing, in fact I think heís had female fights on all his shows.

Iím a box/fighter, a bit of both really, I can get in there and do body work and also box on the back foot, I used to go steaming in but now Iím more controlled in my approach.

I think the fans will really enjoy watching me fight, I like to really mix it up, I donít take any prisoners.Ē

Sarah Knights professional debut will take place on the undercard of double WBU European Championship headed WARZONE event, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London on Saturday 1st March 2014.

Tickets, priced £35 (Standard Seated) and £60 (Ringside) for the Dave Murphy Acourtier Events WARZONE event are available by calling the ticket lines 07960 850645 or 07809 499896
