UK heavyweight title challenger Mark Potter’s cancer fund close to target

Former British heavyweight title challenger Mark Potter is closing in on a Go Fund Me goal but still needs help.

Potter, 47, was diagnosed with a deadly outcome after discovering stomach cancer. However, being the fighter he is, Potter refuses to take it lying down.

The Londoner is battling tooth and nail against the 18-month terminal prediction and neds just a couple of thousand pounds to hit a donation target.

Currently, Potter is just over £32,000 in his £35,000 goal. With your help, he can reach that benchmark.

Potter remains active in training following a benefit night of boxing last month that saw Julius Francis compete, among others.

The one-time Danny Williams opponent keeps his chin up when it comes to taking each day at a time.

“So, while I’ve got a hiatus from chemo, it’s the gym for me. Just hit legs, but missing the power I once had,

“I’m here, and I’m doing it. The weather is great, so go enjoy Insta-buds. Stayed blessed.”

Mark Potter cancer

Mark was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the stomach and bone. The awful news came totally out of the blue. As you can imagine, it has sent us all sideways.

Mark is the fittest and the healthiest man I know. An absolute mountain of a man with a heart of gold.

Anyone who knows Mark will agree.

He is currently a personal trainer and doesn’t drink alcohol, smoke, or take drugs. His life has been dedicated to boxing, personal health, and fitness.

Previously, he has been a professional boxer, MMA, and cage fighter and has been a part of many charity fundraisers in the past.

He’s an amazing person, a great husband, father, and friend. He will always take the time to help someone if they are in need.

Stage 4 cancer does not have to mean a death sentence. Many people have survived after being diagnosed with cancer exactly like this.

Instead of laying down, accepting, and giving up, they searched for additional therapies that were available.

There are thousands of people out there who can testify to this. Mark is a fighter to his core. He is not going to lie down and give up.

Potter is most famous for being at the wrong end of a one-armed knockout from Mike Tyson-conqueror Williams when Danny suffered a dislocation in 2000.
