Marcel “Hard Rock” Rivers returns the ring for Philly Special brought to you by Raging Babe Productions on February 8th at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia. Rivers is one of the hardest throwing Welterweights from the city in a long time.

The 31 year old Rivers is a bit of a late bloomer, but so far in his career he has compiled a 6-0-0 record with 4 knockouts to his name. The most impressive though was a fourth round knockout over Osnel Charles in 2017. I mean, look at this shot.

For that knockout, Rivers won the 2018 Brisco Award for knockout of the year.

If I have one complaint about Rivers is that he looks for the knockout a little too much. I’d really like to see him open opponents up before landing that monster right. But even when Rivers struggles, he still looks like the dominate man in the ring. It’s scary how much talent that takes.

But every time Rivers gets in the ring fireworks are just around the corner. And it’s likely that we will see that again against Derrick Whitley Jr on February 8th.

You can check Marcel Rivers and all the great action, February 8th at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia for Philly Fight Night Presented by Raging Babe Promotions. Make sure you get your tickets now because this event is selling out fast. The event is headlined by rising super star Christian Carto and should have tons of great action.

Nik enjoys bantamweight wars, good body work, and boxers who work on their craft. In his spare time he spends time with his family, or away from them in his work shop.
