Larry Marks On Lange-Wilt Card

17.08.06 - The biggest boxing card in Virginia's history just got bigger! Major League Boxing is proud to announce the Co-Main Event to the historic Jimmy Lange vs. Tommy Wilt battle on October 7th. Washington, D.C.'s own Purcell "Hard Rock" Miller, 22-4-1, 18 Knockouts will be taking on former world title challenger Larry "The Laser" Marks, 28-8, 16 Knockouts in an explosive 8 round Middleweight clash!

Purcell "Hard Rock" Miller is a Washington, D.C. Boxing icon. His ring entrances, with full ten piece brass band in tow, are legendary. Along with his showmanship, Purcell possesses legitimate knockout power in both hands with 18 of his 22 wins ending inside the distance. "I don't like to leave it in the judges' hands.", says Miller. Miller's list of opponents is an impressive one including: Dante Craig, Jason Naugler, Robert Frazier, Carl Daniels, Raul Frank, and Kenny Baysmore. Miller is confident that he will add the talented Larry Marks to his list of KO victims and move on to a title shot in the near future.

Larry "The Laser" Marks 28-8, 16 knockouts is not concerned about Miller's vaunted punching power. "I'm not worried," says the confident Marks, "Besides, I've got a lot of pop in my punches too. He'll see." Marks has also fought a list of World Class opponents, having once challenged for a World Title on HBO against Andrew "6 Heads" Lewis.
