Growing up, Mark Schmid loved boxing. But getting hit? Not so much. Today, no one gets closer to the action than Mark as he introduces the combatants to the ring in his role as a Master of Ceremonies for the British Boxing Board of Control and Hellraiser Boxing. While no longer having to avoid punches, Mark has recently been on the receiving end of a high-heeled shoe, hurled in to the ring while announcing a result which proved a little unpopular with the losing boxer’s mother.
York Hall, Bethnall Green is Mark’s home turf with the championship fights broadcast on Eurosport, Channel 5 and Channel 4’s KOTV.
