Marlan “Pretty Boy” Hall wants help in picking his celebration dance for his future pro career

The South Okanagan’s soon-to-be newest professional MMA fighter wants his fans help in choosing his post-fight victory celebration.

Oliver resident Marlan “Pretty Boy” Hall made quite a name for himself in the amateur circuit of the Battlefield Fight League, clinching 10 wins in total and earning the title of featherweight champion in September 2018. He went on to defend the title in his last amateur fight on March 17, pinning challenger Casey O’Leary in under two minutes in the first round.

He told Western News staff that he currently “has things in the works” and expects to make an announcement about his future pro MMA fighting career in the very near future.
