McKart Faces Marquez at Soaring Eagle

Carlos Llinas of CLIP Boxing and Bluecap Promotions have announced an outstanding Fox-televised card at the Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant Michigan, on Saturday, March 29. In the main event, former WBO Light Middleweight Champion Bronco "Superman" McKart (51-8, 31 KOs) will face former IBF Light Middleweight Champion Raul "El Diamante" Marquez (40-3, 29 KOs)..

McKart has recently been in very exciting televised bouts that have been voted among the best by The Ring Magazine. Marquez is also enjoying resurgence and is currently on a five-fight knockout streak. The two tough veterans are sure to make for an all-action shootout.

In the co-main event will be undefeated super lightweight Vernon "Iceman" Paris (17-0, 12 KOs). One of the sports hottest young prospects, Paris will be looking to once again thrill the Soaring Eagle crowd with his fast hands and thudding power.

In addition, boxing history could be made that night, as undefeated middleweight Tyrone "Young Gun" Brunson (18-0, 18 KOs) will attempt to break the world record for first-round knockouts to begin a career.

Female former world champion Kara "KO" Ro (14-0, 7 KOs) will be fighting in the featured bout of the night.

On the undercard will be Luigi Gjokaj and Brandon Little in separate bouts.

"There will be one main-quality fight after another in this stacked night of action," states promoter Llinas. "The Guinness Book of World Records people will attend to see if Tyrone Brunson will make history."

Undercard opponents and ticket information will be released shortly.
