Mr. Marinoble is known in the kickboxing world as the "Mad Man." Given the nickname because of his relentless style of fighting, Mr. Marinoble has refined himself into one of the sport's most well known fighters, and one of its best ambassadors. Since beginning to fight as an amateur in the early 1990's, Mr. Marinoble had one goal in mind, to be the Professional World Champion. Mr. Marinoble won the IKF United States Light Middleweight, Middleweight, and Super Middleweight titles along with the USAK Middleweight title before turning Professional.
Since turning professional in 1998, Mr. Marinoble has torn through the Middleweight division. He won his first professional title (IKF United States Middleweight Title) in a 10 round unanimous decision over Larry Jarrett of Florida. Mr. Marinoble won the IKF North American Middleweight title against Thomas Downing of Canada on December 17,1999, on his way to his ultimate goal, a World Title opportunity. Mr. Marinoble has since added the ISKA United States San Shou title in a rematch of his only professional loss against Rudi Ott of San Jose, CA. In July of 2000, Mr. Marinoble stepped into the ring against Tommy "The Terminator" Kimber in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After standing toe-to-toe for 7 rounds of back and forth action, Marinoble let loose with a vicious combination sending Kimber to the canvas, thus making himself the new IKF World Middleweight Champion.
