    I've been looking for his fight with Osborn Machimana for years. Sounds like an absolutely brawl judging by the Boxrec description.

    The big C is a vicious opponent that is for sure.

    Mark seemed to have plenty fighting his corner, fund raising, supporting him with a sprinkling of celebs in that number like England football captain Harry Kane, Frank Bruno and even the strong man turned 'boxer' Hafthor Bjornsson.
    None of which cures the illness but all helped him cope, as his social media phrase said
    "Happily fighting cancer alone although I’m never alone!"

    Rest easy big man.
