Marcus Oliveira (born March 18, 1979) is a light heavyweight professional boxer fighting out of Lawrence, Kansas.

Professional career[edit]

Oliveira made his professional debut with a knockout win against Daniel Russell in April 2006. Oliveira would win his first six bouts by knockout, five of them in the first round. In February 2007 Mike Word became the first opponent to last the distance with Oliveira. June 2007 saw Oliveira defeat an opponent with a winning record for the first time, as he defeated 179–18–2 Buck Smith by TKO in round 2. Oliveira's first non-winning result was a split draw with 15–1–1 Nick Cook in February 2008, a fight for the vacant USBC light heavyweight title.[1] Oliveira would take a major step forward with a dramatic come-from-behind win against undefeated prospect (8–0 with 8 knockouts) Phil Williams. In that fight Oliveira was knocked down twice but rallied to knock Williams out in the seventh round. In January 2009 Oliveira defeated veteran Rayco Saunders by majority decision.[2][3] In his most recent bout Oliveira defeated Otis Griffin by second-round knockout on June 5 at Grand Casino Hinckley in Minnesota.[4]
