Menominee Boxer Headed for Big Time?


Menominee native Marcus Oliveira is a bad man.  At least in the ring he is.  Sam Laskaris reports on the devastating puncher’s undefeated rise through the Native American Boxing Council’s ranks, ultimately earning him NABC belt with his 20-0-1 record.

What happens next for the 31-year-old Kansas native will get very interesting. As his awesome highlight reel shows, Oliveira is a tenacious and overpowering fighter, and as a part of Don King’s stable of boxers is possibly looking at a pay-per-view fight. This means with a few more wins, Oliveira may be fighting in the World Boxing Association and World Boxing Council, pitting him against the superstars of the sport.
